WASHINGTON - Federal-Mogul Corp. is recalling more than 34,000 Carquest and National brand wheel hub assemblies sold as replacement equipment for MY 2002-2008 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup trucks.
This recall covers only replacement Carquest and National wheel hub assemblies. It doesn't pertain to any original equipment installed on Dodge Ram 1500 trucks manufactured by Chrysler. The recalled units are Carquest 515072, Carquest 515073, National 515072 and National 515073, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The problem is that the inboard roll form used to maintain the hub assembly can fatigue, resulting in noise and/or wheel separation on the 2WD applications. (The safety recall doesn't pertain to installation on the 4WD applications.)
Federal-Mogul will notify truck owners of record, and technicians will replace the affected hub assemblies free of charge. Owners can reach Federal-Mogul at (248) 354-7700.
