Bentleys Recalled Over Sunroof Adhesion Issue

Bentley Motors is recalling certain 2007-2009 Continental Flying Spur vehicles, saying that the sunroof may not be properly secure and could detach while driving.

“Due to an issue during sunroof production, the process to adhere the sunroof glass to the sunroof frame was not performed to specifications,” according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). “The cleaning procedure at the supplier was not performed to required specifications, which can result in the glass delaminating from the sunroof frame. The supplier had changed from a two-component process to a one-component process.”

The sunroof supplier is Germany-based Webasto.

To remedy the issue, additional adhesive will be applied between the sunroof glass frame and the glass panel, according to Bentley.

In June 2008, the sunroof supplier updated the cleaning process so the issue should not be present in production moving forward, according to Bentley.
