Quick Connecters Are Allowing Fuel Lines to Detach

A defective quick connector might allow fuel supply lines to detatch from the engine of over 500 Golf R cars.

Volkswagen is recalling the cars because when detached, the lines stop supplying fuel to the crankshaft (very important) and start depositing it onto hot engine surfaces (very dangerous).

The same connectors are being recalled in the Audi A3 and TT. Maybe it’s time to go back to the drawing board on this quick connector design?
