What are the defects?

The cable for the spare wheel winch can be weakened and snap when used under certain conditions (extreme dirt/dust exposure). The spare wheel will then only be secured by the secondary securing strap.

What are the hazards?

If the spare wheel detaches, this may result in an accident and injury or death to other road users.

What should consumers do?

Affected consumers will be contacted directly by Volkswagen to organise an inspection and repair, free of charge.

Owners of affected vehicles can also contact the Volkswagen Recall Campaign Hotline on 1800 504 076 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am-8pm AEST) or visit https://www.volkswagen.com.au/app/locals/find-dealer
