Mitsubishi Recall SR-14-004: Power Steering Pressure Tube May Chafe

2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Due to abrasion and rust, a hole may develop in the power steering tube, allowing the fluid to leak out, resulting in added steering effort, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, the leaking fluid increases the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source such as a hot engine or exhaust component.
