Federal-Mogul announces recall of steering parts in 6 Chrysler models

Article by Christian A., on December 31, 2010

Because of a flaw that could result to a car crash, 22,689 replacement control arm assemblies in six Chrysler-brand models from the model years 1995 to 2006 are being recalled by supplier Federal-Mogul Corp.

According to a notice filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the driver could lose steering control because of a part of the assembly, a ball stud, which could wear through the assembly housing.

The control arm assembly is the main link between the vehicle frame and the wheels and this enables the wheels to go up and down independently of the chassis. Federal-Mogul is uncertain of how many vehicles are affected by the recall.

Federal-Mogul spokesman Jim Burke said the number of these parts in each vehicle varies depending on the type of suspension, but typically, there is one or two per vehicle.

The recall includes the Chrysler Sebring convertible and the Chrysler Sebring sedan for the model years 1996 to 2006. Federal-Mogul produces different original equipment and aftermarket parts such as pistons, cylinder liners, wiper blades, valves, gaskets and spark plugs.

On the Automotive News list of the top 100 global suppliers, Federal-Mogul ranks No. 47 with worldwide sales to automakers of $3.0 billion in 2009.
