Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain 2003-2020 Porsche Macan, Cayenne, Panamera, and Cayman S vehicles. Please see the recall report for a complete list of all affected models and model years. The caps that cover the low-beam headlight horizontal adjustment screws are missing, which can allow the headlights to be improperly adjusted. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”
Dealers will inspect the headlights for sealing caps and install missing caps as necessary, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed October 29, 2022. Owners may contact Porsche’s customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche’s number for this recall is ANB4.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.
In May of 2022, Porsche’s production plant in Leipzig discovered missing sealing caps in vehicles for the Canadian market. Porsche immediately began investigating the scope of the affected vehicles, including past production records.
Porsche in parallel studied whether the missing sealing cap was necessary to prevent the potential for adjustment, and how the agency addressed questions concerning the sealing caps in past petitions. This work continued through August 2022.
On August 24, 2022, Porsche decided that the subject issue was a noncompliance with S10.18.9.2 of FMVSS No. 108.
