Default 2007 S331 3V & SC with 15” Brake Upgrade - Wheel Hub Assembly Update

2007 S331 3-Valve & Supercharged with 15” Brake Upgrade
Wheel Hub Assembly Update


INTRODUCTION:
Saleen, Inc. has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2007 S331 Supercharged and S331 3V vehicles with the 15” brake upgrade option. These vehicles have a bearing held into each front hub by a C-clip, and some of the C-clips may not have been installed
properly. The potential failure modes of this issue are that the hub will come loose within the spindle and will force the rotor to contact the brake pad. Ultimately, depending on the driving condition (i.e. applied load), the bracket holding on the brake caliper could potentially fail, resulting in the rotating assembly (wheel, tire, hub, and rotor) separating from the vehicle. The Service Portion of this bulletin provides instruction on how to install this new wheel hub onto the vehicle.

IDENTIFICATION NUMBER:
This campaign is identified by 07V-188. This number must appear on all communications and documentation associated with this campaign.

NUMBER OF VEHICLES POTENTIALLY AFFECTED:
The number of vehicles potentially affected is 163.

DEALER RESPONSIBILITY:
It is the dealer’s responsibility to inspect and repair each vehicle affected by this voluntary safety recall which for any reason enters the service department. This includes vehicles purchased from private parties or presented by transient (tourist) owners and vehicles that are in the dealer’s
inventory.
