THIS NOTICE APPLIES TO YOUR VEHICLE, VIN:

 

Dear Volvo Owner,

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

Volvo Car USA LLC (Volvo) on behalf of Volvo Car Group, has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain model year 2019 S60 vehicles.

 

The reason for Recall R19938:

Volvo has identified that the rear suspension toe links may not have been tightened during assembly. This  could cause a toe link to detach, which would cause a sudden change in vehicle handling. It could also  cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system  to turn off. A sudden loss of vehicle control  could increase the risk of a crash.

Your authorized Volvo retailer will inspect the rear  suspension toe link flange lock nuts. If a nut is found  loose, both the bolt and nut will be replaced.

 

What you need to do: 

Please contact your authorized Volvo retailer for an appointment. The repair procedure will be performed at no cost and can take up to 30 minutes to complete.  However, the time your Volvo retailer requires to service your vehicle may be slightly longer depending on the vehicle.

If you had previously paid for this repair to be performed, prior to receiving this letter, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for the cost of obtaining a pre-notification remedy of the problem associated with this recall. For more information, please refer to the Volvo Customer Care Center contact information in this letter.

PRO BIKE TOOL 1/4 Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench Set – 2 to 20 Nm – Bicycle Maintenance Kit for Road & Mountain Bikes, Motorcycle Multitool - Includes Allen & Torx Sockets, Extension Bar & Storage Box
  • PRECISION TORQUE MEASUREMENT - Install components with calibrated precision - 2.0 to 20.0 Newton Meter torque range with micro adjustment to 0.1. Helps ensure that the fittings on your bike are tightened to the correct torque, and that clamping forces are distributed evenly across clamping surfaces. This helps prolong the life of high-performance components and prevents damage from over tightening. Ideal for use on stems, seat clamps, lever clamps, chain sets, rotors and headsets.
  • PEACE OF MIND PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT – Over-tightening bolts can cause expensive damage to your bike. Applying too little torque can lead to bolts working loose or not doing their job. Our 1/4-inch drive dual-direction torque wrench driver removes the guesswork, making it easy to follow the manufacturer’s recommended settings. Each hand tool is shipped pre-calibration tested for accuracy, +/- 4% (clockwise) and +/- 6% (counter clockwise).
  • SAFE & EASY TO USE & READ – Smooth and precise operation. Spring loaded adjustment collar automatically ‘locks’ in place at the desired torque setting, ensuring it will not accidentally slip when being used. High-contrast Nm scale is easy to read. Wrench emits a ‘click’ that can be ‘heard and/or felt’ when the pre-set torque value is reached, alerting you to ‘stop’ applying force. IMPORTANT: At low Nm settings under 5 Nm the click can be ‘subtle’. Between 5 & 20 Nm the click will be stronger.
  • RIGHT TOOLS FOR THE JOB – Includes Hex: H2, H2.5, H3, H4, H5, H6, H8, H10. Torx: T10, T25, T30 socket / key set and 100mm extension bar for reaching concealed bolts. Bespoke protective molded case to keep the adjustable torque wrench and tool bits stored safely, also includes ‘storage’ section inside case to store bolts when using the wrench. Reversible 72-tooth ratchet head measures torque in clockwise and counter clockwise directions. Engage and release bit instalment button.
  • PROFESSIONAL QUALITY – Each hand tool is fully calibration tested for accuracy to ISO 6789-2:2017 and DIN EN ISO 6789-1:2017-07 requirements and test methods for design conformance testing, quality conformance testing and recalibration procedure. Includes individual certificate of calibration with each set.
