RepairPal Expert Overview
The driveshaft was manufactured without having a catch strap to secure it to the undercarriage. As a result, if the driveshaft loosens, it could strike the fuel tank, causing a fuel leak and a fire hazard.
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.
The driveshaft was installed on the vehicle without a catch strap which protects it from damaging under body components in the event the shaft loosens. Dealers will install a driveshaft catch strap free of charge to resolve the concern.
