Recall on some 08 Libertys

2008 Jeep Liberty Power Train Recall 13V121000

NHTSA: Action Number: N/A Service Bulletin Number: 13V121000
Report Date:
Apr 03, 2013
Component:
Power Train
Potential Units Affected:
61409
Manufacturer:
Chrysler Group Llc



Summary: Chrysler group llc (chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2007-2008 dodge nitro 4x2 vehicles manufactured march 21, 2006, through march 1, 2008; and 2008 jeep liberty 4x2 vehicles manufactured february 15, 2007, through march 1, 2008. The transfer case heat shield may drop down and rub on the drive shaft, weakening it and potentially causing the drive shaft to break.


Consequence: If the drive shaft breaks, a section of it can strike the transfer case tunnel with enough force that the airbag computer will believe the vehicle is in a crash and thus deploy the airbags. Additionally, the drive shaft failure will result in a loss of motive power. Either condition may increase the risk of a crash.


Remedy: Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will add a bracket to support the rear of the heat shield, free of charge. An interim letter was mailed to owners on may 29, 2013. Owners may contact chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is n10.


Notes: Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to www. Safercar. Gov.
