Year 2000 Rolls-Royce Bentley Arnage Automobiles Recalled
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has published the recall of certain 2000
Rolls-Royce Bentley Arnage automobiles because the fuel return pipe in the engine
compartment can wear through as the result of repeated contact with the exhaust manifold
as the vehicle is driven.
According to NHTSA, if the hose
becomes damaged, fuel leakage could occur. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition
source could result in a fire.
110 of these vehicles, manufactured between
October, 1999 through February, 2000 are affected by this recall.
Dealers will inspect the routing of the fuel
return line. If necessary, the dealer will reposition the hose or replace it with a new
hose if it was damaged. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began during
late March 2000.
Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Rolls-Royce at 1-800-777-6923.
