Hyundai Starts Recall Action for Brake Hoses in China30. November 2017
Hyundai Motor (China) Investment Co., Ltd. has initiated a recall for 29 models of its Kia brand. The company informed the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) that it had discovered defects in components on vehicles imported between March 13 and 14, 2017.
Due to manufacturing reasons, the vacuum hose of affected vehicles may start to contract, causing the brake pedal to become stiff and the braking distance to increase posing a serious risk in brake reliability.
Brake hose function is essential for vehicle safety. This is the reason that brake hoses are listed in the official catalog of CCC mandatory products and are subject to CCC certification in China. All regulations for the certification process of brake hoses are defined in the CNCA Implementation Rules number CNCA-C11-06: 2014.
Product tests are a mandatory part of the CCC Certification. The required tests can be found in the corresponding Chinese GB-standards. Depending on the model and intended use, different standards may apply here. The most common brake hose standard is GB 16897-2010 (Brake Hose-Structure, Performance and Test Methods).
