PRODUCT: Certain Cessna Aircraft Company Models 172R and 172S airplanes.
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2013-03-15
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: This AD was prompted by reports of chafing of a new configuration of the fuel return line assembly, which was caused by the fuel return line assembly rubbing against the right steering tube assembly during rudder pedal actuation.
This AD requires the installation of the forward and aft fuel return line support clamps and brackets; inspect for a minimum clearance between the fuel return line assembly and the steering tube assembly and clearance between the fuel return line assembly and the airplane structure; and, if any damage is found, replace the fuel return line assembly.
DATES: This AD is effective March 19, 2013.
