Introduction to DRIVE bul/etins:

DRIVE is a major project within MG Rover. It's objective is to significantly improve our competitiveness.

The purpose of a 'DRIVE' bulletin is to advise changes introduced as a result of the MG Rover 'DRIVE' initiative. To find out more about 'DRIVE' refer to UK Dealer Communication letter 024/01 dated 17

September, 2001. In addition, an illustrated special edition of MG Rover News was issued in March 2001, a copy of this edition can be viewed / printed from the MG Rover Connections - After Sales web site (www.mgroverconnections.com ).

Drive Bulletins will be issued periodically as new changes are implemented. Each bulletin should be used

for information purposes only. NOTE: Certain items maya/so be of interest to areas in addition to service, i.e. Sales, Parts or Warranty, please circulate as appropriate.

\ ....

Each bulletin issue will include brief details of recently issued DRIVE items.

Occasionally, certain DRIVE

implementations will require a more detailed description, in such instances a separate Technical Bulletin will be issued.

Please ensure that no vehicles built later than the change indicated are back-dated to the previous change condition.
