The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for the Apache reported that the fuel manifold panel (R180) latches had rivets improperly installed during manufacturing.
Aviation maintenance action message H-64-23-AMAM-12 (includes a required addendum) requires a one-time inspection to determine if the fuel manifold cover latch rivets are properly installed or require replacement. For reporting purposes, final compliance reports must be submitted by 11 Oct 23. During the inspection, if one or more rivets aren’t installed correctly, the unit must report “fail.” A “pass” is when all the rivets are installed correctly.
