RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the molded plastic pin that connects the upper steering column shaft and the lower column shaft may have been sheared prior to installation of the steering column assembly. If this occurred, the upper steering shaft will separate from the lower steering shaft. If the shafts separate, the driver will experience a complete loss of steering control. A restraining sleeve will be added to the intermediate shaft to limit the amount of steering shaft movement available.
