    Recall 07204 - Is on the GM VIS

    The Recall is official to the dealers now, you should recieve your letters soon.

    I pulled up my own car on the VIS and it lists the recall # as open(not done), but in the desciption it says N/A...maybe it's still to soon.

    Anyway, this is just a FYI.

    Pardon my ignorance, but the recall pertains to what part/condition?

    Re: Recall 07204 - Is on the GM VIS

    Here is the first part of the recall:

    Subject: Product Safety - Drive Axle Seal Leak-Replace Seal #07204 - (01/31/2008)



    Models: 2005-2007 Cadillac CTS, CTS-V, SRX, STS

    2006-2007 Cadillac STS-V

    2007 Daewoo G2X

    2007 Opel GT

    2006-2007 Pontiac Solstice

    2007 Saturn SKY




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Condition
    General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2005-2007 model year Cadillac CTS, CTS-V, SRX, STS; 2006-2007 model year Cadillac STS-V; 2007 model year Daewoo G2X and Opel GT; 2006-2007 model year Pontiac Solstice; and 2007 model year Saturn SKY vehicles. The drive axle differential seal (two on all-wheel drive vehicles) may leak because it does not meet GM's specifications. If a seal is leaking, there will be fluid on the ground where the vehicle is parked. If enough fluid leaks, the differential will become noisier because of reduced lubrication. After about two-thirds of the differential fluid is lost, the bearings may no longer be lubricated and may start to overheat. Damage to the bearings and other differential components could then occur. Damaged bearings will create noise that may be heard by the vehicle occupants. If the vehicle is not repaired and damage progresses, three conditions can occur: (1) When the vehicle is stopped and shifted to reverse, the differential may jam and prevent vehicle movement; (2) the damage can cause drag that will feel like the brake is applied; or (3) the differential could jam and lock the drive wheels while the vehicle is in motion. If (3) occurs, the driver may not be able to control the vehicle and a crash could occur without warning.

    Correction
    Dealers/retailers are to install a new drive axle differential seal (two on all-wheel drive vehicles).

    Vehicles Involved
    Involved are certain 2005-2007 model year Cadillac CTS, CTS-V, SRX, STS; 2006-2007 model year Cadillac STS-V; 2007 model year Daewoo G2X and Opel GT; 2006-2007 model year Pontiac Solstice; and 2007 model year Saturn SKY vehicles built within these VIN breakpoints:

    Re: Recall 07204 - Is on the GM VIS

    Wow, I just checked my service history and my dealer did this repair on December 4! Good for them, they fixed it even before the recall. But, I recall them telling me they saw it leaking so they fixed it. Still, they found something I didn't specifically ask them to fix, so they get points from me!

    I see they are only listing up to 2007. I take it this issue was fixed with a 2008 STS-V? Should I check this for my 08?

    '08 is completely different.

    fred, the new design seal wasn't available until December 17th to my knowledge.
    They may have replaced the seal but I wouldn't bet that it has the new design.
    If the recall applies I'd have them inspect it to verify it has the new design seal.

    Interesting. Thanks Bill. Is there a new part number? Maybe I could check my invoice for it....

    I posted them somewhere else, but I'll get it and post them here too. If it doesn't have one of these part numbers then it has the old design seal.
