Product description
Van / passenger car. Company recall code: 18SMD130.
Risk
The ball joint might detach from the knuckle. The heat generated at the AC compressor pulley may damage surrounding parts. The front suspension arm and the rear arm could detach from the chassis during driving. Moreover, the steering rack might detach during driving.
Measures taken
The tightening torque of the threaded connection between the ball joint and knuckle may decrease and the A/C compressor pulley could break. If this occurs, the pulley will separate into 2 components that will rotate against each other, generating heat. The bolts holding the front and rear suspension arm to the chassis could be deformed and break and the steering rack fixation might be damaged.
