Default New Recall K36 - Released 4-1-2011

2011 (DS) Ram Truck

NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles built through December 04, 2010 (MDH 120401).

The rear axle pinion bearing on about 60,000 of the above vehicles may not receive adequate lubrication under certain driving conditions. This lack of lubrication condition could cause the pinion bearing to seize and cause a loss of vehicle control and/or cause a crash without warning.

A rear axle pinion bearing fluid drain-back flow restrictor and new axle cover with a revised fluid fill level access hole must be installed.

Thanks for posting this. I too ran this through the Dodge site and my truck needs this recall work done.

Would this explain my klunking in the rear when I come to a stop

If your truck falls in this recall you need to call the dealer and make sure he has the parts,,,,ALL the parts. When the engineer at dodge created this parts list for this recall he omitted the tube of silicone sealant in the kit,,so the dealer has to order that separately,,,DUH.

I just got my letter.

I called my dealership up and they told me I'd be on a waiting list (5th in line), and that Dodge would only ship them one per 14 days.

WTFH?!?

So they tell my rear end might fall out from under me, but get in line...and cross your fingers for two months.

Ironically, I am supposed to tow my boat to Alabama for vacation in less than two weeks. Oh well, I guess I will just keep my roadside assistance number close at hand and let them pick up the bill if something breaks.

I really would like to know what the "certain driving conditions" are. Sounds like lawyer-ese for "we have no idea why it does it."

I think I am justified in being steamed right now.

Have you had the temporary repair done? If you have, you'll be ok until the recall parts arrive.

I am not aware of what the temporary repair is. I just found out about this this morning.

Will Dodge pay for the temporary repair while I wait?
