Porsche recalling 918 Spyder models for workshop inspection

Porsche has issued a global recall for 918 Spyder models. 

This precautionary recall for a service shop inspection affects 47 vehicles in the UK but it isn’t clear how many there are in Ireland.

The recall is because the electric wiring harness for the radiator fan in vehicles manufactured up until the end of April 2015 could be damaged by a carbon-fibre component. The wiring harness will be examined and optimally remounted in the work shop.

The cause was identified following a detailed examination of complaints. Corrective measures were then immediately taken in manufacturing.

The owners of the affected vehicles are being contacted directly by their Porsche contact partner. The workshop visit, which will be free of charge, will be arranged as quickly as possible and will likely require the vehicle to be left in the workshop for half a day.
