SAFETY RECALL NOTICE
K&N Engineering, Inc. (K&N) has determined that certain K&N oil filters, Part Nos. KN-204 (black) and KN-204C (chrome), manufactured between March 1, 2016 and September 30, 2016 contain a defect related to motor vehicle safety. K&N is conducting a voluntary recall program to replace those parts.
ITEMS COVERED BY THIS RECALL
The KN-204 (black) and KN-204C (chrome) oil filters covered by this recall have manufacturing date codes imprinted on the ends of the filters that contain as the second and third characters of the code the number/letter combinations of 3H, 4H, 5H, 6H, 7H, 8H or 9H, with the number corresponding to the month of the year (i.e., 3 for the month of March, 4 for the month of April, etc.) and the letter “H” representing the year 2016. KN-204 and KN-204C oil filters manufactured outside of that date range and which bear different manufacturing date codes are not covered by this recall. K&N oil filters with a different part number are also not covered by or involved in this recall.
If you purchased a KN-204 and/or KN-204C oil filter since March 1, 2016, or if you believe you may have such a filter installed on your vehicle, please check to see if it has a manufacturing date code within that range. The date code can be found as shown in the photograph below. In this photo, the relevant character combination is “7H”, which indicates the oil filter was manufactured in July 2016.
