Ghost (RR4) Auxiliary Water Pump – Recall



A number of M/Y 2010-2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost (RR4) vehicles have been identified as having a potential problem with the auxiliary water pump. Under certain conditions an electro migration can occur within the auxiliary water pump’s electronic circuit board which could lead to a malfunction.

If the pump’s electronic circuit board malfunctions, it can overheat. In an extreme case, overheating of the circuit board can lead to smoldering of the water pump. It cannot be excluded that this may also lead to an engine compartment or vehicle fire.

Dealers should check for vehicles which are subject to this Technical Campaign using ISPA (Integrated Service Processes Application) or S-Gate.



In all instances follow ISTA/D repair instructions: 11 53 000 ‘’Removing and installing/replacing auxiliary water pump for exhaust turbocharger (N74R)’’
