Manufacturer Campaign Number:
Component: WHEELS:RIM
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 26
Summary:
      THE REAR OF THE WHEEL CENTER SECTION WAS PAINTED CAUSING A LOSS OF FRICTION BETWEEN THE WHEEL CENTER PIECE AND THE FLANGE "BACKING PLATE" ENABLING THE FLANGE TO ROTATE AND/OR THE SLEEVE THROUGH WHICH THE LUG STUDS PASS WERE NOT PROPERLY INSERTED IN THE WHEELS.
Consequence:
      THE ROTATING FLANGE CAN APPLY PRESSURE AGAINST THE CYLINDERS CAUSING THE CYLINDERS TO BECOME LOOSE. THIS CAN RESULT IN A LOSS OF TORQUE FOR THE LUG NUT, AND CONSEQUENTLY, THE WHEEL COULD LOOSEN, CAUSING A POSSIBLE LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL.
Remedy:
      DEALERS WILL INSPECT EACH WHEEL. IF THE WHEELS ARE NOT THE CORRECT TYPE, ANY AND/OR ALL OF THE ORIGINAL WHEELS WILL BE REPLACED WITH A NEW PROPERLY MANUFACTURED WHEEL.
