Renault Australia — Renault Trafic III

Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
VF11FL112E0709587 to VF11FL118G0733943. Not all vehicles within the range are affected

What are the defects?

The rear axle may have an insufficiently tightened Panhard Rod bolt, due to a production error.

What are the hazards?

There may be abnormal noise and tyre friction inside the wheel arch, which may be followed by a risk of uncoupling of the rear axle from the body. This could lead to unstable road holding, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified to contact a Renault Dealer to arrange for inspection and rectification of their vehicle.
