The screws retaining the wheel bearings on the hub port of the rear axle may not have been sufficiently tightened and can become loose. As a consequence, the screws can detach during use of the vehicle. If this occurs during rotation of the wheels, it can damage elements of the braking system on the rear axle, or may cause the wheels to detach.
The vehicles concerned were manufactured between 18. 6. 2018 – 28. 8. 2018.
