This week recalls:
– BMW X5 – fire risk, airbags
– Mercedes S-Class – the risk of fire
– Audi Q4 – airbags
– Toyota Supra – brake booster
Six recalls of five manufacturers were issued for six models in the 35th week of 2021 through the Rapex system.
Friction corrosion on the connector from the wiring harness to the blower regulator may cause fluctuations in the electrical resistance, which can lead to overheating and damage to the wiring harness insulation with older BMW X5 and X6 right-hand-drive models. That can result in a short circuit, leading to a vehicle fire, even if the vehicle is parked. More than 45,000 vehicles manufactured between August 2006 and August 2011 are being recalled. In addition, the passenger airbag may not function properly in 2019 to 2021 BMW X5s due to a manufacturing defect in the dashboard.
