Risk
This product poses a serious risk of injuries because the speedometer cable on the units affected may break and prevent the speedometer displaying the speed. Inspection of a speedometer cable and a brake panel revealed a split in the outer lining material (PVC), with corrosion of the winding of the outer structure and the inner winding at the area of the split, causing the speedometer reel to seize up and break. Reproduction tests revealed that certain components of the grease applied to the sliding surface of the inner cable caused hardening of the outer lining material, which might then split. If water enters through the split, the winding of the outer body and the inner cable corrode and seize up. The speedometer then breaks down when the speedometer reel or inner cable break.
