Mercury Marine - 4.5L, 6.2L & 8.2L MerCruiser Sterndrive, Inboard and Towsport Inboards

The Hazard!

The water rail connector fitting may fail resulting in water leaks. If the water rail connector fails, a significant amount of water could be discharged into the boat and this could disable the engine.

If the engine is disabled, it is possible that the boat could become stranded. This could increase the risk of accident or injury.

What to do...

Consumers should stop using their boat and contact an authorised Mercury MerCruiser dealer to schedule a service appointment, mentioning Mercury MerCruiser Service Bulletin 20-09.

Contact Mercury Marine Customer Service on +61 3 9791 5822 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm AEST) or email merc.info@mercmarine.com

Visit the Mercury Marine website to locate your nearest dealer.
