Passenger car
Product description
The recall concerns 2007 and 2008 model year vehicles.
Risk
The product poses a risk of injuries because the power steering hose may get in conflict with the engine cooling fan. This concern is due to an insufficient retaining clip. The insufficient basic design regarding fixation of the power steering hose enables it to come in direct contact with the rotating fan. The subsequent chafing on the hose will result in a sudden drainage of servo oil in the system and a loss of servo assistance. Since this will appear suddenly and without any relevant warnings to the driver, combined with the type of vehicle concerned, this condition poses an unreasonable risk to motor vehicle safety.
