Volvo models affected by this Recall: Volvo XC90

Recall chassis numbers (VIN) by Volvo Model: YV1Ct694691512232 to YV1CT7146A1545469

Build Date of Volvo cars Affected: 23/09/2008 to 21/10/2009

Recall total number of Volvo Cars: 2584

Recall defect descripton: A hose for the power steering assistance hydraulics could come into contact with the cooling fan. This would cause a noise, which an observant driver may be able to hear. If the hose and fan conflict for long enough then it is possible for the hose to leak power steering fluid to the degree that servo assistance could be lost.

Volvo Recall action: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and check the hydraulic hose for damage and relace as necessary. The hose will then be secured with a modified bracket.
