Risk
The product poses a risk of injuries because the internal spring of the tension adjuster for the drive belt (that operates the generator, water pump, air conditioner compressor, and power steering pump) may break. As a consequence, the tension of the drive belt will not be adjusted and, in the worst case, the belt may come off the power steering pump pulley and driver will need increased effort to steer the vehicle which could lead to a road accident.
