The fourth-generation Renault Clio has been recalled in Australia due to two possible faults with the city car’s braking system.

Affecting 318 Renault Clio IVs in total, the recall relates to incorrectly fitted front brake hoses and incorrect rear brake retaining clips.

According to the official recall notice on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) product safety recalls website, “Incorrect fitting of the brake hoses may result in reduced braking capacity and handling ability, under heavy braking, increasing the risk of a collision.”

Comprising a range of trim specifications, Renault Australia corporate communications and sponsorship manager Emily Fadeyev told CarAdvice that no RS model Clios are involved in the recall.

Fadeyev said while the occurrence rate of the fault is currently lower than 0.02 per cent, maintenance to fix the problem could take up to four hours if parts need to be replaced.

The all-new Renault Clio launched locally in September last year.
