Problem description:

The rear axle bevel wheel nut may loosen, causing the rear drive shaft to become separated from the rear axle. A loose rear axle bevel wheel nut may cause jamming of the rear axle and separation of the drive shaft from the rear axle may cause a loss of propulsive force. Both these problems may lead to an accident without warning.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Dodge dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
