Just had a look and found this:

Concern :   FIRE MAY OCCUR
Description :   The layout of the ABS wiring maybe incorrect in the area of the battery holding unit. The wiring may on some vehicles maybe trapped and pinched, exposing wiring in some area. this may cause damage and in extreme cases a potential risk of fire.

Remedial Action :   Repair to inspect and repair the wiring using industry accepted soldered connectors

FFS, had mine since Sept 2008 and it hasn't caught fire yet.  FFS. My mileage is way more than the circumference of the earth since I got Scorpi, so I refuse to panic.  FFS.
