A voluntary recall has been announced for Geely's MK light car in Australia, following confirmation of the discovery of asbestos in engine gaskets.

The announcement comes just months after asbestos was found in nearly 25,000 models from Chinese compatriots Great Wall Motors and Chery.

Unlike the Great Wall utes and SUVs, and the Chery passenger cars, the Geely MK is sold only in Western Australia, due to the absence of Electronic Stability Control in the light car.

The Geely recall will see owners contacted by mail, inviting them to have the affected parts replaced in a process it says will take around 90 minutes.

Affected Great Wall and Chery models however will keep the components, with the ACCC approving the application of a warning sticker and the assurance of replacement if necessary.

The ACCC has approved the same steps for the Geely MK.

For the Geely MK, an assessment carried out by GCG Healthy Safety & Hygiene describes the risk of asbestos exposure to occupants as "negligible."

“During normal operation of these vehicles, the gaskets will not release measurable quantities of respirable asbestos fibre. Gaskets identified as containing asbestos are separate from cabin ventilation systems," the report reads.
