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.
