  • VF3LPHNYWES171160

  • VF3LPHNYWES172255

The ACCC recall notice advising that the injectors’ fuel supply rail fitted to those vehicles may pose a leak risk in the long-term.

What are the hazards?

If the fuel rail fails it will cause a fuel leak and can cause fuel to spray over the hot areas in the engine bay and it could result in a fire hazard, damaging the vehicle or injuring the occupants or passers-by.

If your Peugeot 308 is on that list, the ACCC says you should contact an authorised Peugeot dealer immediately to have the fuel injection rail checked and, if necessary, replaced.
