    • 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 »
