Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of a fire.



Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche) is recalling certain 2015-2018 Macan vehicles. The fuel pump service cover may contact the flow nozzle on the filter flange of the fuel pump, potentially causing cracks and a fuel leak.


What should you do:

Porsche will rework or replace and apply a protective film to the fuel pump flange. in addition, the fuel pump flange will be inspected and replaced if cracks are present. The recall is expected to begin April 10, 2020. Owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche's number for this recall is ALA2.


For more information:

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 20V077000
Potential Number of Units Affected: 70117

Can this cover be accessed by removing rear seat.

If so how do you remove the rear seat?


This is warranty work (if needed) I would just let the dealer handle it.

As a recall they have a legal obligation to acknowledge that the condition is fixed.

Loren you are a lifesaver!

Just got done,had to use a padded pry bar to release seat.

I would have never figured that out.

Do you have a service manual or where did you get the pics?

Anyway THANKS,
