A fuel leak increases the risk of a fire.
In the affected vehicles, the fuel pump strainer cover may deteriorate allowing fuel to leak out.
Parts to permanently repair the affected vehicles are not currently available.
Honda will notify owners with an interim letter during May 2014.
A second notice was mailed to owners October 6, 2014 when the remedy became available.
Any vehicles that are currently leaking from the fuel pump cover will get a replacement, original cover.
All vehicles, including those receiving the interim repair, will get an improved cover when they are available.
Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

|2005−10||Odyssey||ALL||Check the iN VIN status for eligibility|
Under REPAIR PROCEDURE, a step to include the Vehicle Emissions Recall – Proof of Correction certificate was added.
Over time, the fuel filter assembly may be exposed to certain external conditions that may cause customers to notice a fuel smell.
NOTE: Vehicles that were repaired under Service Bulletin 14-015, Safety Recall: Odyssey Fuel Smell or Leak, must still be repaired under this bulletin to make sure the improved fuel filter set is installed.
Replace the fuel filter set with the improved parts set.
Owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification of this campaign beginning in June 2014.
Do an iN VIN status inquiry to make sure the vehicle is shown as eligible.
Some vehicles affected by this campaign may be in your used vehicle inventory. These vehicles must be repaired before they are sold.
Should a dealership sell an unrepaired vehicle that subsequently causes an injury or damage because of the recalled item, the dealership will be solely responsible to the damaged party, and will be required to defend and indemnify American Honda for any resulting claims. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this campaign, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.
