INTRODUCTION:

This bulletin announces the design changes to the right front wheel apron. A customer may experience a “metallic rattle” sound when operating the horn. This can be the passenger side horn mount making contact with the wheel apron creating a vibration/sound. The new apron has an added indentation to providing needed clearance for the horn. There has also been a horn stopper removed from the apron to allow additional clearance as well.

 

PRODUCTION CHANGE INFORMATION:

  • Vehicles produced as of January 2020 will have the added indentation.
  • Vehicles produced as of August 2021 will have the added indentation and the deleted horn stopper.

 

PART INFORMATION:

STEP 2) Slightly reposition the left horn mount towards the front of the vehicle. Use CAUTION not to apply excessive force causing damage to the mount. Function test the horn to in after adjustments to confirm there is no rattle/vibration sound  during  operation.

 

STEP 3) Reinstall all parts in the reverse order of disassembly.
