Bayonet Lock May be Open, Causing Fuel Leak - 2019 Freightliner Sprinter

November 7, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19V798000

Bayonet Lock May be Open, Causing Fuel Leak

 

A diesel fuel leak can create slippery road conditions, increasing the risk of a crash.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V798

Manufacturer Daimler Vans USA, LLC

Components FUEL SYSTEM, DIESEL

Potential Number of Units Affected 4,987

 

Summary

Daimler Vans USA, LLC (DVUSA) is recalling certain 2019 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles equipped with diesel fuel systems. The bayonet lock between the fuel pump and the fuel tank may not have been closed and locked during manufacturing. As a result, a leak between the fuel pump and the fuel tank could occur. In addition, a gas station fuel pump may not automatically stop once the tank fill level is reached, potentially causing the fuel to overflow.

 

Remedy

DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the bayonet lock on the fuel pump, locking it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 20, 2019. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3KRAFMOD.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
