Recommendation issued to: Rolls Royce, Ltd.
|Date issued:||17 February 2003|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Rolls Royce plc. revise service bulletin RB211-72-D516 to highlight the potential for cracking failure between the lever and connecting pin of the Variable Stator Vane lever assemblies, and ensure that inspections contained within this bulletin adequately address this mode of failure.
|Date issued:||05 July 2006|
|Response from:||Rolls Royce, Ltd.|
|Action status:||Closed - Accepted|
Although a formal response was not received, the engine manufacturer has subsequently redesigned the component and eliminated the anomaly. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau considers this action sufficient to close this recommendation.
