AD NUMBER: 2012-20-04
PRODUCT: Certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes.
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-20-04
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: This AD was prompted by reports of chafing between the wire harness along the wing leading edge and the inboard end rib of the wing leading edge due to insufficient clearance. This AD requires inspecting the wire harness along the leading edge for chafing damage, and repair if necessary; and relocating and installing new anchor nuts.
The FAA is issuing this AD to detect and correct chafing damage to the wire harness along the wing leading edge, which if not corrected, could lead to the loss of the airframe de-icing system, and could become a possible ignition source causing fire.
DATES: This AD becomes effective November 14, 2012.
