Manufacturer Ref :61C033 
Make:HYUNDAI

Recall Details

Concern :SECONDARY BONNET CATCH MAY NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY
Description :If the bonnet is not shut correctly on the main bonnet catch and the bonnet then opens to the secondary catch, the secondary bonnet catch is not strong enough to hold the bonnet in a closed position. At high motorway speeds the bonnet can then fly open and block the driver’s view. There is also a warning light to inform the driver that the bonnet is not closed correctly which is not functioning as intended.
Remedial Action :Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and replace the secondary bonnet catch for a new stronger item. A new program will be downloaded into the cluster to make the bonnet open warning light work correctly.
