Our Quick Take:
Fuel travels from the fuel tank underneath the vehicle to the engine compartment via a fuel line. This fuel line is joined to other components through the use of connectors. One of these connectors may be leaking, near the right front wheel area.
What Should You Do?
We at RepairPal have designated this a high priority recall; fuel leaks, if present, pose a fire hazard. Please contact your Volvo dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
The fuel line may leak at a connector near the right front wheel area. A fuel leak near an ignition source is a fire hazard. Dealers will inspect the fuel line date code and replace the line if it falls in the affected date range. The Volvo recall number is R224. This recall began on April 23, 2010.
