Porsche Cars North America is recalling 223 918 Spyder vehicles manufactured from 25 February 2014 to 29 April.

In the affected vehicles, the wiring harness for the left rear radiator fan may contact an engine heat insulation plate cuasing chafing and resulting in an electrical short which could increase the risk of a fire.

Dealers will inspect the wiring harness and secure it to a coolant tube using a tie-wrap clip, free of charge.

The wiring harness could short and result in a fire even when the vehicle is unattended. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the repair has been made.
