    Not sure if this has been aired on the forum or not

    A vehicle recall notice has been issued for over 20,000 Sevel-built Fiat Ducato, Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Relay vans.

    This means motorhomes that have these as their base vehicles could also be affected by the notice.

    Over 7,000 Fiat Ducato vans that were built between April 2006 and March 2010 are affected. While it is unclear how many of these 7,265 Ducatos were converted into motorhomes, those who own a Ducato-based motorhome with the vehicle identification numbers (VIN) ZFA25000001000371 to ZFA25000001789440 are advised to contact an authorised Fiat dealer for advice.

    The recall is in force because of a problem with the mechanism used to raise and secure the spare wheel underneath the vehicle. In some circumstances, the spare wheel may become detached from the vehicle. However, as many motorhomes do not have spare wheels fitted as standard, it is unclear which motorhomes could be affected. Therefore, owners of motorhomes with the above VINs should contact an authorised Fiat dealer for advice.

    It will more than likely only be applicable to PVC's.

    Had mine done last Friday, they fitted the new piece of kit in under an hour. Apparently it's a different part for alloys, 15" and 16" wheels. :thumb:

    They didn't say anything about a new wheel brace thingy, maybe they put it with the Jack under the seat, they did give me a sheet on how to use it.

    Has mine done about a moth ago. There's a recent thread on it on Fun, I'll see if I can find it.

    Not a big job and soon done, and yes there is another bit that is to be used to raise/lower the spare.
