2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser SUSPENSION NHTSA Campaign #08E033000
Summary: Federal mogul is recalling 6,903 aftermarket ball joint assemblies shipped between November 9, 2007 and March 26, 2008, which may have been packaged with incorrect nuts. The part numbers packaged with incorrect nuts are: K7147, K7329, K8683, and 104353. These parts were made for use on the various vehicles listed above.
Consequence: The nuts included in the packaging for these ball joint assemblies are missing the intended prevailing torque (self-locking) feature.
