Dealers will inspect the transfer case for indications of oil leakage. Vehicles that have no oil leakage will have the transfer case oil changed. Vehicles that have oil leakage will have the transfer case resealed or replaced if necessary. Owner notification is expected to begin December 2, 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
