2007 Volkswagen Jetta RecallsVolkswagen Recalls Certain 2006–2010 Models Due to a Possible Fuel Leak
Volkswagen is recalling certain 2007–2009 Jetta, Jetta Sportwagon, Golf, and Rabbit, as well as 2006–2010 Beetle and Beetle Convertible vehicles equipped with a 2.5L gasoline engine due to a possibly damaged fuel supply line. Under hood fasteners may chafe against the fuel supply line, resulting in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Dealers will perform vehicle-appropriate inspections and repairs in order to protect the fuel supply line from chafing damage.
Volkswagen has recalled 2006 Jetta models with 2.01 engines because the fastening screw contact surfaces on the driveshaft cover plate may not have been manufactured to factory specifications. Some screws may not have been properly torqued and could loosen over time, even to the point where the driveshaft detaches from the gearbox. If the vehicle is moving when this happens, the damaged gear box could leak oil onto the street, creating a hazard. Dealers will inspect the driveshaft screws and replace the screws free of charge.
The caps to disable the headlight aiming screws may be installed in the incorrect positions. The cap for the horizontal aiming screw may have been installed on the vertical aiming screw. Improperly aimed headlights could cause reduced road visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install and remove disabling caps as necessary to assure they are in their correct locations. This recall is expected to begin on October 31, 2007. The Volkswagen recall number is Q8.
