Units Affected:
358,000

Affected Component: Fuel system, gasoline:delivery:hoses, lines/piping, and fittings.

Summary: The fuel hose attached to the fuel distribution rail on the engine may shrink beyond the clamp force of the fuel hose clamps, allowing fuel to leak. .

Model(s):
FOX
Year(s):
1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993
Manufacturer:
VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA,INC
NHTSA ID:
95V105000
Recall Date:
n/a
Units Affected:
164,000

Affected Component: Engine and engine cooling:cooling system.

Summary: In the event of a cooling system component failure while the vehicle is driven, the coolant can overheat causing the cooling system pressure to rise to a level where a leak in the heat exchanger can occur. .

Conequence: A leak or failure of the heat exchanger located under the dashboard can allow hot coolant to escape and cause injury to the feet of a passenger. Hot coolant can also steam up the interior of the vehicle temporarily impairing the driver's visibility, increasing the potential for a vehicle accident. .

Remedy: Dealers will install a bypass valve kit which is designed to route excessively hot coolant to the engine without flowing through the heat exchanger. Dealers will also install a plastic cover underneath the dashboard on the passenger side to ensure that the passenger is not exposed to hot coolant in the event of a leak. .

Notes: System: engine cooling system. Vehicle description: passenger cars. Note: if your vehicle is presented to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and the remedy is not provided free of charge within a reasonable time, please contact volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987. Also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's auto safety hotline at 1-800-424-9393. .
