What are the defects?

Due to the weakness of a component in the 'quick connector' on the fuel supply line, fuel may leak at very high engine compartment temperatures.

What are the hazards?

Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may cause a fire. If this was to occur there is a risk of serious injury to vehicle occupants, other road users and property.

What should consumers do?

A letter will be sent to affected owners advising them of the recall and that parts are not expected to be available until the end of July 2020. Consumers may book their vehicles in for a free-of-charge repair after the parts are available.

Until your workshop appointment, if you smell fuel coming from your vehicle, park it safely and immediately contact your nearest Porsche Centre by phone. If you require assistance out of business hours, phone Porsche Roadside Assistance on 1800 659 911.

For further information, consumers can also contact their local Porsche Centre, or visit the website: www.porsche.com.au for contact details of their preferred Porsche Centre.
