What are the defects?

Poor weld penetration on 10" Electric brake mount flanges welded to stub axles on beam axles and independent suspension rubber axles fitted to caravans and camper trailers.

What are the hazards?

Should the mount plate weld fail, the trailer braking effectiveness will be affected and this could possibly cause an accident and potential injury.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by mail. Consumers are advised to call their closest dealer or authorised aervice agent immediately and book their van in for inspection and possible rectification. Those found faulty will have a replacement axle supplied and fitted at no cost.
