Published on 5 August 2018

LAMBORGHINI GALLARDO COUPE ( 10/01/2007 –  13/05/2009) DEFECT:  On vehicles fitted with carbon ceramic brakes the stainless steel screws fixing the rotor to the metal bell may fail due to stress corrosion cracking if the vehicle has been used in extreme salt environments. The customer will experience a noise when a screw fails and the brake continues to be 100% effective. However if the affected disc was to lose 8 of the 10 screws there would be a loss of braking at that wheel. Although the maximum bolt failure worldwide has been 3 theoretically the concern could lead to an increase in stopping distance and a collision.


Remedy: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected to replace the affected stainless steel screws with a screw of a different material that is not susceptible to stress corrosion cracking.
