Recall: No. 4 of 5
Recall Ref: R/2005/018
Exact Model:
Description: Possibility that the brake pipes may be affected by heat
VIN: IG6YV34A945604182
Build Date:
Numbers: 1
Defect: Some of the metal brake pipes are placed so that they could be affected by heat or they could be in a position where chafing could take place. If the above circumstances occur they could lead to, in extreme circumstances and over a period of time, either loss of brake fluid or air in the braking system. These conditions will lead to a reduction in the performance of the rear brakes.
Action: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected for inspection. If necessary re-route, replace the brake pipes. On some vehicles a machining tab on the rear differential may need to be removed to allow adequate clearance for the metal brake pipes.
Launch Date: 30 January 2005
   
Recall: No. 5 of 5
Recall Ref: R/2004/197
Exact Model:
Description: Possibility that the steering wheel can lock whilst the vehicle is in motion.
VIN:
Build Date:
Numbers: 9
Defect: Two scenarios have been identified, which may result in the steering column electronic lock (ECL) engaging whilst the vehicle is in motion. (1) The design is such that when the engine is started, if the steering column fails to unlock the fuel supply will be shut off if the driver attempts to move the vehicle. However, if the voltage at the powertrain control model is low or interrupted, fuel shut off may not occur and in consequence, the vehicle can be accelerated whilst the steering is locked. (2) During engine cranking, the ECL locking pin may not withdraw fully, which can result in contact between the lock pin and the locking plate. This can cause noise or ratcheting when the steering is turned. Should the clearance be insufficient, the possibility exists that the steering cannot be turned.
Action: Recalled vehicles will have the electronic control unit re-programmed, and lock mechanism inspected to ascertain whether there is adequate lock plate clearance. Should this not be the case, the lock plate will be replaced
Launch Date: 01 November 2004
