Peugeot has issued a recall for 24 of its current-generation ‘T9’ 308 hatchbacks, over concerns a fuel leak could pose a fire risk.

The company reports the rails supplying the fuel injectors could pose a leak risk over the long-term.

If the fuel rail leaks it could cause spray fuel over hot areas in the engine bay, which could result in a fire hazard - posing a risk of damage to the vehicle and injury to the occupants or a third party.

The following VIN numbers are affected by the recall:
