Re: Loose Front Half Shaft Boots My14 GC

Took the overland in for complimentary 1000k service today. When I picked it up they told me that they have ordered new half shafts for me even though the ones on the car look fine. Happy with that!

The service manager for the local delearship said that they will most probably be doing the same thing with cars that are part of the recall.
Good to see your dealer is proactive with potential issues.

Looks like I spoke too soon. Passenger side boot failed yesterday at about 1500Km. looks like a trip to the dealer this morning.

Re: Loose Front Half Shaft Boots My14 GC

Grease on the inside of the wheel rim, then have a look underneath and you can see grease everywhere.

Re: Loose Front Half Shaft Boots My14 GC

You should be able to see the grease through the holes in the rim from the outside. Or get down on the ground and stick your head under the front of the car and you will be able to see it.

Re: Loose Front Half Shaft Boots My14 GC

ok thanks. just washed the car yesterday and no grease so so far so good. I assume there is no way to detect this while driving?

Re: Loose Front Half Shaft Boots My14 GC

No, I didn't notice any change in the way it drove. Only affects Grand Cherokees built between March 2 and April 21 2014.

Saw the dealer this morning, he said that he had calls from 2 others today for the same issue. He has provided me with a replacement car until mine is fixed.
