Vehicle Details

Make:LAND ROVER
Model :Discovery Sport 2.0 L & Evoque 2.0 L

Recall Details

Concern :FUEL MAY LEAK
Description :The under bonnet fuel hoses routed on top of the engine may chafe against a plastic moulded noise suppressing material retaining posts on the underside of the engine top cover. The fuel hoses can, over time, chafe through the protective sleeve and fuel hose. Should the fuel hose wear through, there will be an increased diesel fuel odour due to diesel fuel leaking. If this warning is ignored, diesel fuel may leak onto the exhaust manifold (potential fire hazard) or onto the road surface (potential skid hazard).
Remedial Action :Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and ensure the securing washers are pushed fully home. Additionally remove 8mm from the plastic moulded retaining posts. The tape wrapped around the fuel hose protective sleeve and the fuel hose will be visually inspected and replaced if there are signs of damage.
