Product information

Product description

Amarok

Identifying features

20T6

What are the defects?

A limited number of Amarok vehicles had fuel pipes incorrectly positioned during production. This defect, combined with vibrations in the engine bay, may lead to chafing or cracks developing in the fuel pipes.

In addition, a secondary issue has been identified with genuine towbars fitted to the same range of Amarok vehicles. The towball does not comply with the height requirements of ADR 62/02.

What are the hazards?

If the defect occurs, diesel fuel may leak and cause a vehicle fire. Continual use of the non ADR tow hitch may also result in cracks to the tow bar bracket, posing a hazard to the driver and other road users.
