Lamborghini recalls Huracans over headlight issue

Bologna, Italy – February 27, 2022 – Lamborghini (OTCMKTS:VWAGY)  has issued a recall for 4,796 vehicles over the possibility that their headlights can be “improperly adjusted.” This would compromise visibility, preventing drivers from being able to see upcoming hazards in low-light conditions and increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall covers 2015-2020 Lamborghini Huracan sport cars.

Recall summary

Headlights are part of a vehicle’s standard safety features, providing forward illumination when driving at night or in low-light conditions. The covers preventing the driver from adjusting the headlights manually are missing in the recalled vehicles “due to a human error.

This could potentially result in headlights incorrectly aligned.

The component involved in this recall is the “beam horizontal screw adjustment blanking cap,” with part number 7PP941041.   

Recall risks

Improperly aligned Lamborghini Huracan headlights may direct the light beam pattern directly into the line of sight of oncoming drivers, resulting in glare. This reduces visibility and increases the risk of a crash, resulting in bodily injury and property damage for the driver and other motorists.  

Other Lamborghini recalls 

This is the second recall issued for the Lamborghini Huracan, with a January 2021 recall involving the rear camera’s failure to display images in temperatures below 41 degrees Fahrenheit.

The repair

Lamborghini dealers will install the covers – called blanking caps – on affected models to ensure the proper alignment of headlights. The repairs will be done free of charge. Affected owners will be notified by April 8, 2022.

Volkswagen recalls more than 3,000 vehicles with misadjusted headlights

Auburn Hills, MI – June 22, 2021– Volkswagen  (OTCMKTS:VWAGY) has recalled 3,231 electric vehicles with headlights that may not have been properly adjusted.  The issue can “increase glare”, especially during nighttime driving, which increases the risk of a crash and injury. 

This recall concerns a blocking cap with part 8W0.941.041 and includes certain 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 SUVs

Recall summary  

Due to a supplier error, the headlights of these recalled vehicles were assembled incorrectly.  Normally, there is a cap inside that blocks the headlights from being adjusted horizontally. The cars that are being recalled had this cap placed in the wrong place, allowing for horizontal adjustment.


A headlight whose horizontal aim is out of alignment will result in reduced visibility for the driver and may even blind oncoming motorists in certain situations.

The repair
