MSB for 2017-19 fuel tank connection hoses

Post by blsewardjr » Sat Aug 17, 2019 8:57 pm

Anyone with a DA40 who had their fuel tank connection hoses replaced recently might want to look at this new MSB. Apparently Diamond will "credit" you for parts and labor.

It looks like this applies to planes from 2017-2019. They probably will provide credit due to the planes still being under warranty.

The previous owner of my 2003 DA40 had the fuel tank connection hoses replaced in 2018. I contacted Diamond with a copy of the logbook entry. They responded that the parts used were "not affected by this bulletin, however we would suggest doing a quick boroscope inspection to inspect the side section of a hose as precaution." I plan to have that done before the end of the year.

It's not just newer planes affected by this SB. I had my (2007) interconnect hoses replaced at my last annual. In fact, one of the invoices listed in the SB is dated during my annual, so I was pretty worried! However, Glenn assures me he has already checked and none of the hoses he used are inculded in the recall.

So yeah, this could affect anyone who had their hoses replaced in the timeframe affected by the SB, not just the new models.

I had the boroscope inspection of the fuel interconnect hoses done and mine are ok. This is a quick and inexpensive way to check if the MSB applies to a particular plane.
