Tesla is recalling 14,113 model year 2015-2016 Model X vehicles.

The aluminum bolts that attach the power steering gear assist motor to the gear housing may corrode and fracture, causing a reduction or complete loss of power steering assist.

Loss of power steering assist would require a higher steering effort, especially at lower speeds, which may increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Tesla will notify owners, and Tesla Service Centers will replace the steering gear mounting bolts with coated steel bolts, and add a corrosion-preventative sealer to the steering gear motor housing and motor connection bolts.

If the mounting bolts are found to be broken or break during removal and cannot be removed, a new steering gear will also be installed.

All services will be performed free of charge.

Tesla has not yet provided a date for when owner notification letters will be mailed.

Owners may contact Tesla customer service at (877) 798-3752.
