4. 12. 2019 In Misc ()


Skoda Auto will announce a recall for Superb II models due to a possible malfunction of the direction indicator failure signalization.

Due to an incorrect configuration of the Body-Control Module (BCM), a failure of the front LEDs direction indicators may not be detected and signalled on the instrument panel with vehicles manufactured between 2013 and 2015.

The Audi Q3 from 2014-2018 was recalled in August 2019 for the same reason – we wrote here; while Seat Ateca and Seat Leon produced between November 2016 and July 2018 are also affected.

Worldwide, the recall affects 92,562 Superb II models, of which 24,027 are registered in Germany. The authorized workshop should set up the diagnostic software and update the BCM software.

The recall´s internal code is “97DR“. Skoda Auto has not registered any accidents or injuries due to this defect. The spokesperson also confirmed to autoservicepraxis.de website, that the repairs will not start before the third calendar week of 2020.

If you notice the malfunction of the turn signals on your Superb II earlier, you should contact any authorized Skoda workshop without delay.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.
