Almost half of Zoes sold worldwide have been recalled; 999 examples in the UK

Almost half of all the Renault Zoes sold worldwide have been recalled, to remove the possible risk of the front wheel arch liner damaging the front brake hose.

The recall relates to Renault Zoe vehicles manufactured before 6 October 2014, with 18,150 cars being affected worldwide. Of that number, 999 are in the UK. A total of 42,300 Zoes have been built.

A Renault spokesman said: “As a preventive measure, the Renault dealership will inspect the position of the front wheel arch liners. In the unlikely event of an incorrect position of the liner, the liner and brake hose could require replacement."

He continued: “The affected customers will receive a letter sent by recorded delivery inviting them to bring their vehicle to an Expert Renault Z.E. Network workshop. The maintenance work may take between a quarter of an hour, for a simple check, to four and a half hours, if parts need to be replaced. A courtesy car will be provided if parts need to be replaced.”

The check and any work required are free of charge for the customer.
