This bulletin applies to 2016 Jeep Patriot vehicles built between September 14 and 18, 2016. Some fuel filler tubes may have an issue with the fuel fill cap thread specification.
Tighten the fill cap and listen for 2 clicks. If the cap remains secured, the correct fill tube is already installed.
If the fill cap will not remain secured, replace the fuel fill tube with P/N 05105255AF. Chalk it up to outsourced manufacturing that didn’t meet spec.
