Since having the TSB completed, it's been 8mos and 12k miles and mine shows no signs of returning.

Re: Has the steering wheel thud returned?

I had my shaft replaced yesterday. The dealer kept insisting "We cant replicate the problem". Even though I insisted the car MUST BE HOT. I handed them the TSB and they told me the TSB pertained only to Euro models. I laughed and told them if they didn't put the shaft thing in my car I was going to DESTROY them when i get my Jeep survey.

Picked the car up after work yesterday with new shaft installed and it feels like it is new again. I am getting sick to death of these dealerships and their LAZY ASS attitudes.

Re: Has the steering wheel thud returned?

On my third shaft and when the engine bay gets hot the thud/clunk is back.
There has to be a better solution to this mess?

Yes it did. But now I have given that GC in trade in for another car.
I got tired of waiting on the rear shock mounts and I took twice the car for the sterring bump and they said they did not experince that in the test drive. What kind of Bull!!!!

Re: Has the steering wheel thud returned?

Finally after many visits to dealerships, I got a new shaft installed today. Didn't drive much yet but so far there hasn't been any thumps. This time the new shaft has a colored dot on the edge of the label as shown in the TSB, the previous two didn't. Fingers crossed it works this time!
