  2. 1998 Chrysler Sebring SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER BALL JOINT NHTSA Campaign #09E056000

    • Date Announced: OCTOBER 09, 2009
    • Vehicles Affected: 5,787

    Summary: Qualis automotive is recalling certain aftermarket ball joints sold for use on certain passenger vehicles. The socket may have been excessively hardened which could cause it to crack near the retaining ring groove allowing the ball stud to separate under impact load. The subject ball joints were sold as four part numbers, D10945, D10946, G10945, and G10946. The affected control arms, D10945 and D10946, are stamped with the following dates on the ball joints: 134308, 135708, 100109, 102709, 104109, 105509, 107609, 108909, 110309, 113209, and 116609. The G10945 and G10946 are the same part as the D10945 and D10946 respectively. They are labeled differently depending on the aftermarket customer.

    Consequence: Separation of the ball stud from the socket of the ball joint housing would allow the control arm to collapse and the wheel to fold in causing loss of steering control, possibly resulting in a crash.

    Actions: Qualis automotive will replace the ball joints free of charge. The safety recall began on November 9, 2009. Owners may contact qualis automotive at 1-800-493-4128. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #09E056000 »

    Summary: Certain Airtex fuel pump module assemblies, P/N E7081H, sold for use as replacement equipment for the vehicles listed above.

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 18, 2000
    • Vehicles Affected: 393,796

    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. If the rubber boots on the lower lateral arm ball joints of the front suspension were damaged during assembly, dirt and water can intrude. Also, mmc has added the potential of leaking moisture, which can cause the ball stud to corrode.

    Consequence: This condition could cause the lower lateral arm ball joint to separate, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. This campaign supercedes mmc's previous safety recall campaign, see 99V-066.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the lower lateral arm ball joint for wear. Ball joints that exhibit wear beyond the established tolerance will be replaced with newly designed lateral arm ball joints.

    • Vehicles Affected: 685,000

    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. The adjustment of the cable connecting the console shifter mechanism to the ignition key can cause a trapped key condition which can result in a low force required to depress the shift button. A combination of applying a mis-adjusted release button with a low force attempt to shift out of park with the key in the locked position, can break the connecting pin in the shifter.

    Consequence: If this happens, the "ignition-park" interlock system will be nonfunctional.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect for proper operation of the system. Any vehicles that are not functional after the inspection will have the shift mechanism and cable replaced with a "self-adjusting" design.
