Re: Fuel Hose Wear - Potential Leak
Transport Canada Recall Number: 2023-377
Dear Ski-Doo®/Lynx® Snowmobile Owner,
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act. This is to inform you that your vehicle may contain a defect that could affect the safety of a person. BRP is conducting a safety recall.
This is also an emission-related recall in accordance with Environment and Climate Change Canada.
Our records show that you own a potentially affected vehicle.
What is the potential problem?
The exhaust gas temperature sensor (EGTS) harness could be rubbing against the E-TEC main injector fuel return hose. This could lead to fuel leaks.
Fire could occur in the presence of an ignition source. In some situations, this could result in serious property damages, injuries or even death.
Which models are involved?
Model Year 2023 Ski-Doo® and Lynx® models equipped with an 850 E-TEC Turbo R engine.
What will BRP do?
BRP will repair your vehicle at no charge to you (parts and labor). The repair is to properly secure the EGTS harness to the chassis and inspect the fuel return hose condition and replace the hose if any wear is observed. The procedure should take less than 1 hour to complete.
