BRP—Some Evinrude® ETEC ® G2 74° V6 (3.4 L) Outboard engines
What are the defects?
The two T45 pipe plugs on the outboard’s stern and swivel assembly were not sufficiently tightened and can loosen, potentially creating the loss of hydraulic steering fluid.
What are the hazards?
In some circumstances, this situation may result in a loss of steering control and possibly cause serious injuries or even death.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should call an authorized BRP Evinrude dealer and make an appointment to have the outboard(s) serviced.
The service will be performed at no charge.
BRP will send a safety recall letter to all registered owners of an affected product.
Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is the responsible regulator for this recall.
