Yup, just happened to notice that there is a recall letter pdf sitting in my jeep account that wasn't there a week ago, so US folks keep an eye out.

I'd like to know about anyone else's experience taking their car to a dealer in responce to this recall....


I called my dealer when I rec'd the recall notice thinking I could perhaps just drop-in and pick-up a replacement wrench. That wasn't possible, and had to make an appointment (for early September). I'm naturally suspicious of dealers and their service departments - I'm hoping this recall isn't a chance for them to put the 'hard sell' on me to have other service performed. My experience w/FCA dealers is that they will recomm. a lot of unnecessary work and over-charge you for everything they do.


Any "R73 Wheel Stud Wrench" experiences would be appreciated.

Shiverman, do you actually need to go to a dealer for a wheel wrench? Don't you have auto spares shops in Canada anymore? I just find it strange that you haven't gone for an aftermarket wrench.

Walked in to the service department and showed them the recall notice. He played with the computer for 10 seconds, went out back and gave me a new lug wrench. Actually asked if I wanted him to "install" it. ????

You're right I agree. Did you order a spare wheel with your Renegade? If so, you should have a jack and wrench supplied.
