AD NUMBER: AD 2008-25-06
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-25-06 SUMMARY: We are adopting a
new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above.
This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information
(MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to
identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product.
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Airbus has advised that
an incorrect part number has been introduced in the IPC
(illustrated parts catalog) for the rear engine mount barrel nut.
This problem affects Airbus A319, A320 and A321 models with IAE
(International Aero Engine) V2500-A5 engines. The part number
introduced in error is not certificated for the IAE V2500-A5 engine
installation and, if installed, may fail in service. Failure of the
rear engine mount barrel nut could result in reduced structural
integrity of the rear engine mount and possible separation of the
engine from the airplane, and a consequent hazard to the airplane
and persons and property.
