Due to a manufacturing error, the screw connection between the front-axle transmission and the transmission mounting may loosen. Consequently, the front-axle transmission may move beyond its installed position and damage the surrounding components, such as the drive shafts or the fuel tank, which may result in fuel leakage.
Fuel leakage close to a source of ignition increases the risk of fire.
The Porsche 911 Carrera 4S models affected by this recall were manufactured between 11 December 2018 and 8 November 2019.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Porsche dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
