Passenger cars - Volkswagen VW Passat 2.0 TDI
Product description
Risk
This product poses a serious risk of injuries because the two mass flywheel of a certain supplier can get damaged during extreme clutch engagements (jumping-back clutch pedal) because of a not optimally designed through-flow opening in the breather of the clutch pressure pipe. This could cause drivability issues and could cause the vehicle to stop suddenly in extreme circumstances causing an accident.
