Because of a production defect on the crankshaft pulley, Fiat and Lancia bring several model series to the workshops. A weld must be checked.
Fiat and Lancia fear brittle welds on the crankshaft pulley for various model series. The companies therefore call vehicles built between August 2005 and May 2006 to the workshops.
Motors switch off
The recall affects the Fiat series Panda, Punto, Idea and Stilo as well as the Lancia models Ypsilon and Musa, each with a 1.1, 1.2 or 1.4 liter petrol engine. The problem affects both the eight- and 16-valve variants of the units.
If the weld seam was broken, the engine control would no longer receive a speed signal - as a result, the units would simply switch off while driving.
In Germany, the recall applies to a total of 11,560 vehicles. In the workshop, the panes are first checked visually and the parts are then replaced if necessary. The rework takes about an hour and a half and is free for the car owner. Vehicle owners affected will be notified via the Federal Motor Transport Authority.
