INTRODUCTION

This Bulletin provides a modification procedure to address a customer concern of a tire rubbing-type sound heard from the right front of the vehicle.  The sound will only occur when backing up with the wheels turned to the right a certain amount.  It is caused by the right front tire coming in contact with the inside corner of the accessory splash guard.  A similar production update to the accessory splash guard will take place as part of a running change in 2013.

 

PART INFORMATION

Right Front Splash Guard p.n. J101SAJ520 is the new part number which includes the above referenced production update.

 

SERVICE PROCEDURE / INFORMATION

  • Remove the splash guard from the vehicle.
  • Measure 3/4 of an inch back from the top inside corner and 2 inches down from the same corner and mark the edges of the splash guard as shown in the “Before” photo above.
  • Using a straight-edge, draw a line to connect the 2 marks.
  • Using a utility knife or equivalent, carefully trim off the corner as shown above, right.
  • Smooth any sharp edges with sandpaper.
  • Reinstall the splash guard to complete the repair.
