Affected VIN:

Bulletin Number

RB 0001


The Bulletin is updated 31-01-2020

Garia has discovered an amp draw concern with fuse 14.  

This fuse, although rated for its use, has proven to get very warm. Garia suspects that this happens due to poor connection in the terminals
Replacing mini fuse 14 (30amp) located in the fuse box under the bonnet with an external Midi style fuse will correct this concern.  

This recall replaces Service Bulletin 7. If Service bulletin 7 has been carried out on the vehicle no further action is required.

Please check that Service bulletin 5 is completed or else do Service bulletin 5 also.

The F14 mini fuse needs to be replaced with a 30A midi fuse & holder, outside the fuse box.
Inspect cars  to see if bulletin applies.  
Check to see if there is an external fuse on the left side of the fuse box, see picture, if there is, the Recall bulletin does not apply.
Please check that Service bulletin 5 is completed or else do Service bulletin 5 also.
