Polaris has issued a service bulletin (Z-23-03) to its dealer network indicating some 2024 RZR XP model UTVs may be missing a necessary U-nut fastener to secure the driver and passenger-side upper dashboard storage bins.
While Polaris has issued a bulletin indicating a voluntary recall, they have not declared this a stop-ride situation. Vehicle owners are asked to inspect their units foremost for any outstanding safety concerns, and continue to ride their vehicles as normal until their retailing dealer sends notice of available replacement parts.
Polaris indicates replacement parts will be sent to dealerships in as early as two weeks.
Due to the low risk of damage or injury from this recall, Polaris will not be issuing recall notices to customers and will rely on their dealer network to contact customers with affected units who have taken receipt of their 2024 models already, to schedule the repair procedure.
The complete repair process is estimated to take less than half an hour. Vehicles are considered covered by this recall notice until Dec. 31, 2023, at which time owners may still be able to have the recall procedure performed, but dealerships will not be reimbursed for repair costs.
Owners who cooperate with this bulletin will not bear any costs associated with the necessary repairs, and owners are not advised to complete the repairs themselves.
Polaris released this bulletin on May 4, 2023, but has not placed the stop ride information on their product safety webpage at this time. Customers may visit the off-road recalls by VIN portal to check if their unit is involved in any open recall actions.
Consumers may also call 800-765-2747 to be connected with a customer service representative at Polaris.
