Both edges of the hub nut must be split and vent.

 

This bulletin applies to 2020 Dodge Ram Promaster 2500 vehicles. The rear axle hub nut on a limited number of these vehicles may not have been properly crimped. 

Verify proper axle nut torque, and if the nut has not been crimped, use a punch and hammer to crimp the nut to prevent loosening.
