KONI B.V.—KONI Shock Absorber

Identifying features

Model No. 30 1720 showing the date code 07-2010
Model No. 30 1721 showing the date code 07-2010 or 13-2010

The date code is found on the label located on the exterior of each shock absorber. The model number can be read while on the vehicle.

What are the defects?

For these two particular model numbers, KONI has discovered that there may have been instances of misalignment of the welding torch during assembly. If this occurred during production, the rod end eye attachment may fail.

What are the hazards?

If there are misaligned/fragile welds, the shock absorber could fail. This could cause the affected vehicle to lose its load-carrying abilities, thereby potentially resulting in loss of vehicle control and a motor vehicle accident.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should immediately inspect their shock absorbers to determine whether they are marked with the affected batch numbers. Consumers should not drive the vehicle until replacement shock absorbers have been supplied and fitted. Refer to the attached instructions in KONI's Recall Letter to Affected Consumers for further information.
