Chemical,
Environment

 

The pink textile material contains azo dyes releasing aromatic amine benzidine (measured value 67 mg/kg). When the product is in direct and prolonged contact with the skin, this aromatic amine may be absorbed by the skin. Aromatic amines can cause cancer, cell mutations and affect reproduction.

The placing on the market and use of articles containing SCCPs is banned. SCCPs persist in the environment, are toxic to aquatic organisms at low concentrations and bioaccumulate in wildlife and humans, posing a risk to human health and the environment.

The product does not comply with the REACH Regulation and the Commission Regulation on persistent organic pollutants (POP Regulation).

Injuries

 

Under certain conditions condensation in the intake air corrodes the needle bearing housing, thus, the sealing between intake air and the electrical actuator circuit of the throttle body might not be water-tight any more. If water enters in the throttle body actuator circuit, the water might cause a throttle body position misreading or short circuit inside the throttle body electrical actuation mechanism. This might trigger the engine to stall while driving.

Injuries

 

As a result of a design change to the engine ignition coils fitted, the internal electrical components of the coil may short circuit resulting in an engine misfire.

In the worst case, this short circuit may cause a fuse inside the Power Distribution Module (IPDM) to fail, stopping power to the ignition relay. This may cause the engine to stall.
