Comfort tire pressure for 20-inch wheels on the rear axle



This is to inform you of a voluntary Workshop Campaign on the above-mentioned vehicles. The nominal value for the comfort tire pressure on the rear axle was coded 7 psi (0.5 bar) too high in the instrument cluster on the affected vehicles due to an error in the coding rule.

As a result, when the “Comfort pressure” function is selected, the driver is prompted to adapt the tire pressure to the nominal value, which is too high, instead of reducing the tire pressure to the correct comfort tire pressure for greater comfort.



Re-code instrument cluster.




When the instrument cluster is re-coded, the individual settings implemented in the instrument cluster by the customer will be lost and are reset to the default values of the country version that applies to the vehicle.

After carrying out the campaign, therefore, please inform your customers that personal settings they have implemented in the instrument cluster will have to be set again and provide them with any help and support they need for setting the relevant options.

This affects the following settings in the Vehicle menu, for example:

  • Lowering of exterior mirror on passenger’s side during parking manoeuvres
  • Locking settings
  • Light & Visibility settings
  • Units (kilometers/miles, Celsius/Fahrenheit, …)
  • Language


Affected Vehicles:

The VIN(s) can be checked by using PIWIS Vehicle Information link to verify if the campaign affects the vehicle. This campaign is scope specific to the VIN! Failure to verify in PIWIS may result in an improper repair. This campaign affects 1,352 vehicles in North America.
