This might be easier. Follow this link and in the SEARCH window type Sprinter. It will generate a short list for 2005 and later.

Not sure how to move them but you are right, it is strange that the vin range wasn't listed, normally they are in the notices.

If edit time is open on all the threads of yours hit them and delete no one thread all should vanish from the thread.

But recalls on the Oz side are limited on info, as are the few recalls that are on the US side.
It's a neat thread if you continue to update on them over the years.
Believe it or not . there were no recalls on the Tins in Australia ,, 'A conspiracy maybe.
If you can't delete the thread. I'll have seek move it for you, if you like.
Thanks for your input.

The use of bolts with the incorrect property class can, in the long-term, lead to the slackening of the attachments for the towing eye, tow bar or end cross-member. In such cases, it cannot be ruled out that parts will become detached from the vehicle.
