Problem Description

In the case of negative exterior temperatures, and after repeated activation of the fuel heater, an electric connection on the cover of the fuel heater can overheat. This can cause the cover to melt, allowing air to enter the fuel system which could lead to stalling of the engine and loss of control of the car.

The recall affects vehicles produced between 3. 9. 2012 – 25. 6. 2014 with 2.0L HDi diesel engine.
