RISK OF CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING AND/OR FIRE
On the affected vehicles the end pipe of the auxiliary air heater may not have been routed correctly due to a cut out in the vehicle floor that is possibly missing. Exhaust from the auxiliary air heater is possibly not correctly diverted under the vehicle floor and could to some extent enter the vehicle interior. There is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and a risk of fire for the under floor panelling cannot be ruled out.
Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and check for the presence of the cut out on the affected vehicles and drill this if necessary. Also the correct routing for the end pipe must be checked and where necessary corrected.
