Would all Bentley Arnage and Azure owners please report to their nearest dealer facility, as you may have a screw loose. It's true. Bentley is recalling 550 of its £200,000-plus luxury saloons over fears that the wheels are in danger of falling off. A number of Arnages and Azures produced between February 2005 and August 2006 may have been fitted with the wrong wheel bolts, with several customers reporting rattles from the wheels. "As a precautionary measure we investigated the issue and re-called the other models," says a spokesman for Bentley. "This was the result of a batch of wheel bolts supplied to us which were of the incorrect specification and could become loose and cause a rattle in the car whilst driving. There were no incidents of the wheels falling off the cars."

How to remove 99 gp front Dr side fender. Hood needed off? Bumper off a must?


Two bolts from the door jamb, 6 (iirc) across the top of the fender, I can't remember how the hood is attached on that car but I seem to remember not taking it off. Bumber is easier to go ahead and remove, trying to only half way remove and you run the risk of cracking the paint or the bumper. Take the i wheel and inner fender well off as well. I don't recall any bolts there (but may be wrong been a long time since I did a fender on one of those) but I know it's easier with it out of the way.

Hide Details



Recall Date:

JUN 23, 2004

Model Affected:

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

Summary:

CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES WERE PRODUCED WITH LOWER THAN SPECIFIED TORQUE ON BOTH FRONT BRAKE CALIPER TO STEERING KNUCKLE ATTACHMENT BOLTS. WITH IMPROPER TORQUE, THE CLAMP LOAD AT THE JOINT MAY NOT BE ADEQUATE TO PREVENT MOVEMENT BETWEEN THE CALIPER BRACKET AND KNUCKLE.

Consequences:

DEPENDING ON WHETHER ONE OR BOTH BOLTS BACKS OUT OR FRACTURES, THE RESULT CAN BE LOCKING OF THE AFFECTED WHEEL DURING BRAKING AND AN ABRUPT STEERING INPUT IN THE DIRECTION OF THE LOCKED WHEEL, REDUCED BRAKING AND NOISE FROM THE AFFECTED WHEEL, OR SEVERING OF A BRAKE HOSE, INCREASED BRAKE PEDAL TRAVEL, AND REDUCED STEERING CONTROL. REDUCED BRAKING OR STEERING CONTROL COULD CAUSE A CRASH.

Remedy:

DEALERS ARE TO TIGHTEN BOTH BOLTS TO THE SPECIFIED TORQUE. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN ON JUNE 28, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT CHEVROLET 1-800-630-2438 OR PONTIAC 1-800-620-7668.

Potential Units Affected:

Steering wheel bibrates after (recal spark plugs) were replaced and it never did before.


sounds like plugs were gapped wrong or the firing order was changed by wires being put on the wrong plugs. take it back where the recall was done this will drastically affect your milage

94 Toyota 4runner, steering wheel spinning freely. No directional control.....AAAAHHHHHHH!


Remove your front lower cover under the engine, it is held on with 12mm and 14mm bolts

Inspect the steering linkage, likely your relay rod has broken. Check for balljoints that might have come off too.

The steering relay rod has been recalled on your vehicle due to breakage, resulting in loss of steering control.

Call your Toyota dealer or 800-331-4331 to call Toyota directly. Provide them with your VIN and they will tell you if your vehicle has had the recall performed. If it has not, they will tow the vehicle to a dealership and replace the damaged parts free of charge. You will however be responsible for balljoints if one has failed.

Right front wheel bearing needs replacing,I see where the 2006 model is recalled for this problem, not the 2005?


Not sure if recall for 2005 models, I have one and the front bearings are packed in a hub, you have to remove the wheel, caliper and base and behind the hub theres 3 5/8" bolts, remove them and you will have a complete assembly removed.
