VARIATION TO ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE IN THE BLOWER REGULATOR WIRING HARNESS CONNECTOR
Over time irregularities in the crimp connection in conjunction with relative movements of the tin coated connector at the end of the wiring harness which connects to the tin coated blower regulator pin could lead to frictional corrosion. In combination with very high current flow which would occur which could lead to a temperature increase. As a result the blower regulator wiring could be damaged and could lead to partial contact of individual wire strands. this could result in an irregular current flow further overheating and increase the risk of fire.
The blower regulator wiring harness will be inspected and a new part will be installed.

REAR WINDOW MAY DETACH
It is possible side and rear windows made out of Makrolon (Synthetic Polycarbon Laminate) may become loose due to insufficient adhesion fixing them in place. This will result in a visual and audible warning of the issue to vehicle occupants. If these warnings are ignored it is possible a window could detach from the vehicle.
Recall affected vehicles and replace the Makrolon windows with conventional glass windows.

EPS MAY NOT PERFORM AS SPECIFIED
Due to a component in the integrated control module not being to specification it is possible power steering assistance may fail. If this happens the EPS warning lamp will illuminate and a check control message will appear on the dashboard display. Directional control will be maintained albeit with additional driver input.
Recall vehicles likely to be affected to replace the steering box.

THE BEARINGS OF THE FUEL INJECTION PUMP MAY FAIL
The bearings of the high pressure fuel injector pump may fail after a short travelled distance (approximately 3000 to 6000 miles) This leads to a total failure of the engine's fuel supply which results in the engine stalling.
Recall likely to be affected vehicles and replace the fuel injector pump.

ENGINE MAY CUT OUT
It is possible that the connection between the B+ cable and the Power Distribution Box can become damaged by wear and heat which is caused by high current flow and high contact resistance. Normally this will result in a non-start situation after parking the vehicle. However it is possible that this could in extreme cases occur whilst the vehicle is in motion. The driver should be make aware of the issue by flickering of the instrument cluster (dash) or an engine mis-fire; but if the driver does not then the engine could cut-out without warning.
Recall all affected vehicles and replace the cable/connection with a more robust item.

PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG MAY FAIL TO DEPLOY CORRECTLY
The subject vehicles are equipped with front passenger airbag inflators which could have been assembled with improperly manufactured propellant wafers. Improperly manufactured propellant wafers could cause the inflator to rupture and the front passenger airbag to deploy abnormally in a crash. This could result in increased risk of injury to the occupant and the possibility of a fire.
Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected to inspect and where necessary replace the airbag inflator module.
