Skoda to recall over 90,000 Superb II models due to a turn signals



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.
