AD: Cessna

AD NUMBER: 2003-09-09R1

MANUFACTURER: Cessna,Reims Aviation
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2003-09-09 R1
SUMMARY: This amendment revises Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2003-09-09, which applies to certain Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 441 and F406 airplanes. AD 2003-09-09 currently requires repetitively inspecting the fuel boost pump wiring inside and outside the boost pump reservoir and repair or replacement of the wiring as necessary. AD 2003-09-09 also requires eventual installation of an improved design wire harness and fuel boost pump as terminating action for the repetitive inspections. The way the compliance time is currently written puts certain airplane owners/operators in non-compliance with the AD. Also, the terminating action for therepetitive inspections did not provide the option of installing the protective sleeving modificationfor boost pump lead wires. This document clarifies and corrects the compliance time and providesthe option of installing the protective sleeving modification for boost pump lead wires. The actions specified by this AD are intended to detect, correct, and prevent chafing and/or arcing of the fuelboost pump wiring, which could result in arcing within the wing fuel storage system. This condition could lead to ignition of explosive vapor within the fuel storage system.
