Summary

BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2023 Rolls-Royce Phantom vehicles.

Chronology :

On September 6, 2022, the supplier informed Rolls-Royce of a potential issue involving certain headlamps.
Initial information suggested that a supplier production process issue may have occurred which could affect certain aspects of headlamp illumination. An engineering review was initiated.

Reviews of supplier documentation and test results were conducted. A review of headlamp regulatory requirements including FMVSS 108 was performed. Preliminary information suggested that a possible noncompliance might exist. Further reviews and assessments were conducted.

Vehicle assembly information and supplier production records were reviewed to determine the number and production dates of potentially affected vehicles.

On September 21, 2022, Rolls-Royce decided to conduct a voluntary non-compliance recall.

Rolls-Royce has not received any reports, nor is Rolls-Royce otherwise aware, of any accidents or injuries that may be related to this issue.
