RepairPal Expert Overview
The rear differential contains gears that propel the rear wheels via axle shafts. A pin in the differential may have its retaining screw come loose while driving, which could then cause the differential to lock up or break. This could result in an accident.
Recall repairs on your Ram truck must be performed by a Ram dealership. Chrysler will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in May, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ram dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The rear differential may lock up or break due to a differential pin retaining screw coming loose while driving. Dealers will inspect and replace the differential retaining pin free of charge to resolve the concern.
