Volvo Car Ireland Limited extends recall of certain passenger vehicles
August 27, 2020
Volvo Car Ireland Limited is extending an active recall campaign initiated in July 2020 which can be found on the CCPC’s website at the following link. The recall extension relates to the below models.
Volvo Models: S80, S60, V70, XC70, S60CC, V60, XC60, V60CC, V40 and V40CC
The vehicles in question were manufactured between October 2013 and November 2016.
Volvo Car Ireland Limited has established that when changing the engine coolant there is a risk for trapped air to be in the cooling system afterwards, this may result in insufficient cooling of engine components, and in very rare causes, cause a fire in the engine bay.
There are a further 2,033 vehicles affected on the Irish market.
What to do:
Volvo Car Ireland Limited will be writing directly to those consumers affected by this recall. The letter will advise affected vehicle owners to contact their nearest Volvo Dealer or Authorised Repairer where an extra degassing line (Bleeder Hose) will be added between the cooling system radiator and the cooling system expansion tank. This will evacuate the trapped air.
