Product title
Passenger car
Product description
The recall concerns 2007 and 2008 model year vehicles, with VINs from Η000201 to Η087347.
Risk
The product poses a risk of injuries due to possible loss of the glass panel of the sunroof. Failure of either the left-side or right-side sunroof guide rail could cause the sunroof to become detached from its operating mechanism and bind. There might be a cracking noise if this condition occurs. If it does occur, the sunroof glass panel will remain attached to its frame, but further attempts to operate it will result in continued noise and abnormal operation due to the binding condition. If a vertical force is applied (for example, if the user is manually aiding the sunroof to close, or wind lift) the glass panel can become fully detached from the vehicle.
