Reasons the product is recalled

A premature wheel bearing failure occurred where Liplex Plus EP 2 was the grease used in the wheel hub assembly. Caltex is investigating the wheel bearing failure to ascertain its cause.

The hazards to consumers

Insufficient level of grease within the wheel hub assembly may lead to wheel bearing failure that could result in the wheel suddenly seizing, bringing the vehicle or trailer to a halt. This has the potential to result in an accident.

What consumers should do

Caltex will directly contact all known customers.
Consumers should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.
