Warranty extended for clockspring

I don't know if anyone has seen this yet, but The Detroit News said that warranty has been extended to 10 years or 150,000 miles for left hand drive, 2007 JK's. 2008-12 right-hand drive have been recalled.

Here's my updated report on it. http://hooliganoffroad.blogspot.com/...s-case-on.html

"Chrysler Group LLC said that 82 of 181 complaints were from right-hand drive Wranglers. " Makes perfect sense to me that they would only recall the right hand ones.

Not as of yet. It's at least a step in the right direction. I find it odd that the right-hand housings are that different from the left-hand housings. It's also weird that 2008-12 RH are recalled, 2007 LH are extended. What about the 2007 RH and the 2008-12 LH that make them the exceptions? Seems like some questions that need to be answered.

Since it's not a recall, I doubt you will get a letter.

Sounds like they are only covering it if the clockspring is bad. So if you took you Jeep in and they find it to be an ABS sensor or something, you'd have to pay the diagnostic fee and then for that repair (if you decide to do it). Best bet would be to call your dealership's service department and get the low down from them. They may not be aware of the extended warranty yet either. That may be something they have to look up. I haven't had the best luck with service depts being up to date on stuff.

Yeah, it seems more people were having exhaust manifold issues than clockspring issues. But I would imagine since this is a safety issue, it gets priority. At least that is my guess.

One less expensive repair bill for 07's to worry about, but what about all the poor saps who already replaced theirs?

Would the clockspring be a potential reason my horn no longer works?

I've checked the fuses and replaced the horn.

Yes, that is a potential cause.

Switch the positions of fuses M22 and M23. See if that makes a difference.

yea not necessarily. I spoke to Chrysler Corporate today and they 100% DENIED that there was ANY warranty extension of ANY kind for the clockspring on the 07 JK.

See that's what makes me sick about all of this recall, warranty, and TSB crap. some people say they have received letters but I was basically told I didn't know what I was talking about and the people saying they received letters are liars.

I finally ditched that "other" forum

see that's just it, how can the service department expect to be kept up to date when corporate tells me, the consumer that I didn't know what I was talking about and no such warranty exists. here's the other problem, we don't have anything to back us up. All we have to go by is what people are saying on the forums and what not. we need some type of official letter stating these things like what we can find for TSB and recalls.

My dealer tells me until I can show them official documentation from Chrysler, then I will have to pay for the clockspring and labor.

damn dude, I guess Chrysler just hates us from Florida. I'm beginning to wonder if this is one of those things call back several times until I get the correct answer
