Summary:
Certain pickup trucks built with 2.5L engines have been built with inadequate clearance between the left front brake tube and the power steering hose. A puncture of the left front brake tube can result in a loss of braking force at the front wheels, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the brake tube and power steering hose for wear. If wear is evident, the brake tube and/or power steering hose will be replaced. A power steering standoff bracket will be installed on all vehicles to ensure that adequate clearance between the brake tube and power steering hose is maintained. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during September 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
