Incorrect wheel alignment with Peugeot and Citroen, risk of fire with Renault (week 35/20)



This week’s recalls:
– Citroën, Peugeot – wheel alignment
– Renault – fuel line
– Mercedes-Benz – ESP


4 recalls for 8 models were issued by four carmakers in the 35th week of 2020 through the Rapex system. Citroën, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, and Renault announced one recall each.

The wheel alignment of the front axle may be incorrect with the Citroën C3 and the Peugeot 208 with a production date between 26 August 2019 to 18 March 2020. This may result in unstable road handling of the vehicle, increasing the risk of an accident.

The fuel line damage may occur with the Renault Megane, Scenic, and Talisman models manufactured from September 2018 to June 2019. As a result, fuel may leak onto the road, posing a risk to the following traffic. Furthermore, fuel leakage on hot parts of the exhaust system will increase the risk of the vehicle catching fire.



With the Mercedes AMG C-Class, GLS, and AMG GT, the ESP control unit software may not meet specifications. This can cause the ESP system to be unable to respond as intended to a possible drift of the yaw rate sensor or to a failure of the brake vacuum supply. As a result, the ESP intervention may be inappropriate to the driving situation, increasing the risk of an accident.

See the table below for all the recalls from this week.
