An amendment to the CC&Rs is voidable if timely challenged by a party, due to a deficiency in the instrument's creation.
The statute of limitations for challenging CC&R amendments (and restatements) is four years from the date the amendment was recorded. (Schuman v. Ignatin (2011) 191 Cal.App.4th 255; Costa Serena Owners Coalition v. Costa Serena Architectural Committee (2009) 175 Cal.App.4th 1175.)
