Renault Reports Problems With Dipped Lights and Wheel Hubs (15/18)

Six of the seven car recalls in the 15th week of 2018 concerned the French-Japanese automobile alliance Renault-Nissan.

The only exception is the Jaguar E-Pace, which does not turn reversing lamps when the reverse gear is engaged. The fault occurs in vehicles with manual gearboxes manufactured from July 2017 to March 2018.

The dipped-beam headlamps may be too low at Clio and Captur models manufactured from the start of production until October 23, 2017. The cause is a possible failure of the headlamp correction system.

Poor sub-deliveries of front wheel hubs may be the cause of another recall announced jointly by Renault, Nissan and Dacia. The front wheel hub could break leading to the front wheel become detached at Renault Clio and Captur (production between 22. – 25. 9. 2017), Nissan Micra (26. 9. – 4. 10. 2017) and Dacia Logan and Sandero (22. – 25. 9. 2017).

At Nissan Micra (September 26, 2017 – October 3, 2017), a problem may also occur with a seat belt retractor that could fail to lock and the seatbelt would not restrain the occupant.

The owners of the Renault Masters from 2016 and 2017 are also recalled. The steering column cover may not have been tightened correctly, which could lead to a loss of vehicle steering.
