Same problem with my 2015 Jeep GC. When the AHR is replaced,,,,,Is it upgraded or do they use the same faulty plastic parts???
I just received the new AHR and it appears to be the same part number/design as the previous one which failed due to plastic fatigue. Simply have to swap out tomorrow and should be good to go until the replacement AHR fails in a few years. Hopefully the NHTSA investigation or one of the class actions leads to a recall by FCA in the near future.Great question that I regretfully don't have an answer for yet. My part has not arrived, but I will have the replacement in the next couple of days. Regretfully, I fear that it will simply be the same part manufactured more recently.
Since the NHTSA investigation is still open, FCA has not acknowledged a problem with the AHR. My hope is that a newer part will provide me with added time until either the NHTSA investigation forces FCA to Redesign and Recall or one of the Class Action Lawsuits forces FCA to take responsibility.
