RepairPal Expert Overview
Right hand drive vehicles may have reduced braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash.
If your vehicle is right hand drive, this is a high priority recall; braking ability could be reduced without warning. Please contact your Jeep dealer; they will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
On right had drive vehicles, the steering shaft may contact the rear brake tubes. Prolonged contact could wear a hole in the brake tube, causing a partial loss of braking ability and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a clip to retain the brake tubes safely away from the steering shaft. The tubes will also be inspected for damage and replaced if necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on June 30, 2008. The Jeep recall number is H17.
