problem #1

May 252002


  • Manual transmission
  • miles
Vehicle was going 40-45mph and upon impact, passenger's front tire fell due to carter pin possibly not being attached. Bracket where the carter pin was held didn't show any indentations or fragment pieces of pin being in tack. Dealer was notified, and stated it was very unusal for this type of impact.
