The steering wheel adapter’s quick release can activate inadvertently and cause the race car’s steering wheel to suddenly detach from its steering column while the vehicle is in motion, rendering the vehicle impossible to steer and posing a crash hazard and risk of serious injury and death to the driver.
This recall involves MOMO Quick Release Steering Adapters for Race Cars available in all-black and in black-with-red. Steering wheel adapters of both color schemes each have “MOMO” printed in white at the top. The all-black recalled steering wheel adapters display model number QRMOMOBKBK, and the black-with-red recalled adapters display model number QRMOMOBKRD.
