Order Reprints

 Check the Julian date on the rotors.

This bulletin applies to 2014-2015 Chrysler Town & Country/Dodge Caravan/Ram C/V Tradesman vehicles built on or after June 1, 2014, and on or before Aug. 1, 2014, equipped with anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes or anti-lock four-wheel HD disc brakes.

The customer may describe a shake and/or vibration in the steering wheel and/or seat while driving at highway speeds without applying the brakes. The vibration may be caused by out of balance front brake rotors.

Remove the front wheels and inspect the Julian date engraved on the front rotor hub wheel mounting surface. If the Julian date 152_4 through 213_4 is found, obtain new rotors and verify that the Julian date is not within the original rotor date range.  New rotors are available as P/N 04779712AA. Again, check the Julian date before installing.
