SKF Sverige Aktiebolag — SKF Wheel Bearing Kit VKBA 6781 for BMW 1 to 4 Series Vehicles
What are the defects?
The thread pitch of the screws does not fully match the thread pitch of the bearing. Therefore, the wheel bearing may not be properly secured to the vehicle.
What are the hazards?
In the case of a high impact shock on the wheel, for example in an accident, the wheel could partly or fully detach from the body of the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury to the vehicle occupant or bystanders.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should contact the place of purchase for a replacement kit, to be installed free of charge.
