problem #2

(reported on)

Ram 2500 Diesel

  • miles
Approximately 4 blocks from my home my wife, who was driving the truck, head a noise coming from the right front wheel. I removed the tire and notice that a bracket on the braking assembly was grinding into the mag wheel. Even though my wife drive a short distance, a significant gouge was made in the the soft metal of the wheel. I pushed the bracket back in place and took the truck to the local Dodge dealer. I was informed that the "anti rattle bracket" at the bottom of the brake assemble had rusted to the braking assembly. Everytime I pushed on the brake, it moved out until it was grinding on the mag wheel. The bracket was grinding on the wheel like a lathe, peeling off the metal of the wheel. If I had been on the highway and did not hear the noise, a serious accident could have happened. The continued grinding would have destroyed the wheel assemble. Neither the dealer or the Dodge consumer complain representive thought this was a very big issue. At this time, I feel that the saftey of this truck is a stake and could result in a serious accident if it is not resolved.
