Safety Recall P14 / NHTSA 14V-154 Brake Booster Success Poll

If you look at the notice for the brake booster recall for a large swath of wk2s posted at wk2jeeps, the techs have to take apart the under hood brake system and move other major engine and chassis parts and to me there looks to be a lot of chance for damage. Can people who have had the foam shield installed rate their experience?

My dealer called today and said they have the shield but I would like to know the general success rate and when and how your recall was completed before I move on it.

Since the recall applies to the all WK2s built through September 08, 2013, there is a lot of us.

Thanks.

I think you need a fifth option. "I'm on a long waiting list for parts and have doubts I will ever see the repair come to fruition before winter in the salt belt returns."

They broke the tabs on the plastic divider that holds the brake lines down, no functional issue more just completeness to me not to have that just hanging there. a couple of screws fixed it no big deal, ill cut them some slack they have been a good dealer to work with. There are very few good ones out there so im glad to have them lol

Re: Safety Recall P14 / NHTSA 14V-154 Brake Booster Success Poll

I thought about having the no parts option but wanted to see what happened after the repair, please come back and vote once you get it done. Also, if you have a corroded booster which I believe may have the longer back order, you need this repair anyway. I would think the foam shields are easier to come by, the turn around on the shield for me was less then a month.

Are you waiting on a booster as well, not just a shield?

That is one concern about this repair, the very part they are trying to protect could be damaged and it can't be replaced very soon since so many people may need them whether damaged during the recall service or because of moisture infiltration.

I had mine done, they messed up installing the brackets that mount the master cylinder/booster. They were rubbing together, so they tell me. Anytime I depressed the brake pedal or any body flex I was getting a very annoying rubbing noise from that area. I had to take it back. They fixed it.

Mines there to work on tomorrow. As I did when they replaced my radio I will be looking over there work if I was to keep it. Mines a lease and with all these recalls it's making considering not keeping it more and more. I'll fill out poll once mine is done.

Re: Safety Recall P14 / NHTSA 14V-154 Brake Booster Success Poll

I thought Jeep was prioritizing this to the salt belt for the booster parts. I see comments from Arizona and Texas. (I know it snows in the mountains in Arizona). I just thought the salt belts like MN, OH, and Northeast got the parts first, then by age of the vehicle as older '11-12's would have a better chance of corrosion due to number of winters exposed. Explains why there are no parts.

Re: Safety Recall P14 / NHTSA 14V-154 Brake Booster Success Poll

This is not surprising. From what I read it only was a real issue in cold climates. Although there was some weeks with freezing weather this year/last year. In Texas it was nicknamed snowpocalypse but probably nothing compared to the Northern Winters. Hopefully it can come to the south before our next Winter.

Re: Safety Recall P14 / NHTSA 14V-154 Brake Booster Success Poll

I had mine done the end of June -- along with 4 other issues. Mine simply needed the shield. I don't know if they broke anything else, but there was stray nut laying down there. I retrieved it with a magnetic tool. 3 weeks later, my airbag light is now on. Coincidence?

Yes, coincidence.

The nuts that are removed get discarded and the kit with the shield comes with new ones.

Usually to discard something brings to mind a trash receptacle. But, leaving it where it falls is another way of discarding something ... at least to many mechanics ... I meant to say technicians.
