Volkswagen recalls

 

For Models: Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Jetta

Brakes, August 23, 1990

Summary: OMISSION OF AIR DUCTS INTENDED TO GUIDE FLOW OF COOLING AIR TO LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT BRAKE CALIPERS COULD ALLOW BRAKE FLUID TO EXCEED ALLOWABLE OPERATING TEMPERATURE UNDER CERTAIN OPERATING CONDITIONS.

For Models: Volkswagen Jetta

Suspension & Steering, March 22, 1990

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1990 Jettas because the power steering pump bracket may break due to excessive tension caused by a lack of clearance between the pump mounting bracket and sealing flange edge of the oil pan. Bracket breakage may cause the power steering pump to loosen and the drive belt to slip, which can increase the force needed to steer. Dealers will replace the power steering pump bracket.

For Models: Volkswagen Beetle

Body, Interior & Misc.

Summary: VOLKSWAGEN IS RECALLING 76,900 MY 2004-2005 NEW BEETLE AND MY 2003-2005 NEW BEETLE CONVERTIBLES EQUIPPED WITH AN ADVANCED (DUAL-STAGE) AIR BAG SYSTEM. THIS SYSTEM MAY HAVE AIR BAG FRONTAL CRASH SENSORS THAT CONTAIN A SOLDER JOINT ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD THAT MAY CRACK UNDER CERTAIN HIGH TEMPERATURE CONDITIONS. IF THIS OCCURS, THE AIR BAG INDICATOR LIGHT WILL ILLUMINATE AND THE FALLBACK ALGORITHM WILL ENSURE THAT THE FRONT AIR BAGS ALWAYS DEPLOY IN A FRONTAL CRASH IN WHICH THE VEHICLE'S DECELERATION IS HIGH ENOUGH TO ACTIVATE THE FRONTAL AIR BAGS.
