1992 LAMBORGHINI DIABLO

Report Date:
October 03, 1995
Campaign Number:
95V186000
Component:
WHEELS:RIM

Summary:
THE REAR OF THE WHEEL CENTER SECTION WAS PAINTED CAUSING A LOSS OF FRICTION BETWEEN THE WHEEL CENTER PIECE AND THE FLANGE (BACKING PLATE) ENABLING THE FLANGE TO ROTATE AND/OR THE SLEEVE THROUGH WHICH THE LUG STUDS PASS WERE NOT PROPERLY INSERTED IN THE WHEELS.

Consequence Summary:
THE ROTATING FLANGE CAN APPLY PRESSURE AGAINST THE CYLINDERS CAUSING THE CYLINDERS TO BECOME LOOSE. THIS CAN RESULT IN A LOSS OF TORQUE FOR THE LUG NUT, AND CONSEQUENTLY, THE WHEEL COULD LOOSEN, CAUSING A POSSIBLE LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL.

Corrective Summary:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT EACH WHEEL. IF THE WHEELS ARE NOT THE CORRECT TYPE, ANY AND/OR ALL OF THE ORIGINAL WHEELS WILL BE REPLACED WITH A NEW PROPERLY MANUFACTURED WHEEL.
