Volkswagen Group Australia Pty Ltd—Volkswagen Amarok
What are the defects?
On certain Amarok vehicles the bolts for the front brake callipers may not have been tightened with the specified torque.
What are the hazards?
If bolt tension is lost, the loose brake calliper makes noises, damages the wheel and under very unfavourable circumstances the calliper can cause a wheel to lock up which could cause a loss of control and possibly an accident.
What should consumers do?
A letter is being sent to affected owners of the vehicles. For further information, customers can contact their local Volkswagen Authorised Service Centre or contact Volkswagen Customer care on 1800 504 076
