What are the defects?

On affected Euro 5 Canter trucks the injector fuel return hose may swell and disconnect if exposed to chemicals from paint, shampoo or grease. These chemicals may be used during rear body building or washing.

What are the hazards?

If customers continue to use the vehicle while the hoses are in this condition the hose will come adrift from the connector. This may cause a fuel leak, posing a fire hazard.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted directly. Owners are requested to contact an authorised FUSO dealership to arrange for a replacement injector fuel return hose to be fitted.
