Bentley has issued a recall for 12 of its Continental Flying Spur sedans over concerns the optional solar sunroof could come loose.

The company reports the solar glass panel is insufficiently bonded to the sliding sunroof frame on affected vehicles. Should the solar glass panel come loose when the vehicle is in motion, this could pose a safety hazard for other road users.

Affected Continental Flying Spur sedans were sold from 25 April 2007 to 31 December 2008. The affected VINs are as follows:

SCBBE53W17C049999
SCBBE53W17C050005
SCBBE53W28C053254
SCBBE53W68C053547
SCBBE53WX8C053776
SCBBE53W58C053779
SCBBE53W38C054283
SCBBE53W28C054310
SCBBE53W98C054840
SCBBE53W68C055217
SCBBE53W58C055371
SCBBF53W79C061087

Owners of the recalled vehicles will be notified immediately by Bentley via mail.

This notice follows a similar one from Audi earlier this month, with seven A8 limousines recalled for the same issue. Both Audi and Bentley are part of the Volkswagen Group.
