RepairPal Expert Overview
The fuel tank may not be properly protected in the case of an accident. A protective plate at the front of the tank and a foam ring on the filler neck were omitted in manufacturing. This could result in a fuel leak and fire.
Recall repairs on your Sprinter must be performed by a Sprinter dealership. Daimler Vehicles USA will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is not available as of the time of this writing.) If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Sprinter dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
A protective plate at the front of the fuel tank and a foam ring at the filler neck may have been omitted at the time of vehicle assembly. This could result in a fire during a vehicle collision. Dealers will replace the fuel tank free of charge to resolve the concern.
