Improper seating of the wheel can result in excessive vibration, brake rotor noise, difficulty removing the wheel after installation and operation of the vehicle, and possibly wheel-end separation during vehicle operation. Should wheel-end separation occur, the driver could loose control of the vehicle, possibly resulting in a crash.

Skf is recalling 2,805 hub units, part no. BR930361, sold as a service part for 1997-2004 Dodge Dakota vehicles and 1999-2003 Dodge durango vehicles equipped with 2-wheel drive & rear axle ABS. Due to a specification error, the rotor Pilot for the hub unit may be too long. This results in the wheel to not be seated fully against the hub flange face during mounting.
Skf will notify owners and replace the defective hub units free of charge. The recall began on November 5, 2008. Owners may contact skf vsm North America customer service at 1-800-644-8999.
