Number of Units Potentially Affected: 311047
Component Description: FUEL:FUEL TANK ASSEMBLY:pIPE:FILLER:NECK
NHTSA Campaign Number: 02V026000Description of Recall Campaign: Vehicle Description: Passenger vehicles. The fuel tank filler neck can suffer abrasion damage if the rear tire deflates and the vehicle is continued to be driven until the tire disintegrates.

Fuel leakage can occur increasing the risk of a fire.

Dealers will fit Passat vehicles with a new wheelhouse liner that will better protect the car's filler neck. Jetta vehicles will be fitted with a different metal shield designed to enhance abrasion protection in the event of tire disintegration. Owner notification is expected to begin during May 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
