Vibration can be transmitted to the fuel filter cover because of the pressure pulsations in the fuel lines. This can crack the filter cover in the area of the supply neck and result in fuel leaks. This could cause an accident of the vehicle or of a following one.
The recall concerns model year 2011 to 2015 vehicles with 1.2l / 55 kW common rail engine.

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 Skoda 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.
Check the vehicle's history
UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
