Are you sure that's what it actually said ?

When the recall was initially released Jeep said they would TEST the clockspring and replace if it was faulty...... like you wouldn't have noticed the ever present chime and warning light. And of course a fat lot of good that does for the MANY that have already had to replace it at their own expense and will no doubt have to again when the thing fails again.

I hope your version is correct..... but it does seem very un Jeep to actually do a fullblown repair job if they can weasel out of it.
It seemed like a good idea at the time........

I had mine replaced under the recall notice in November last year. 2015 JKU. I asked if it was just a test and they said no they will just replace it straight up

I got mine done a couple of months ago when i went in to get a seal replaced under warranty, already had the letter but hadn't taken it in because i had heard they were just checking them and only replacing if necassary. So i quizzed them when it was mentioned and they said initially they were just checking them but now they are replacing the clockspring and the shroud around the steering column on all vehicles.

Check out my Ride(s)

Are they contacting owners even if they are not the original purchaser, guessing would be using registration to find current owners...any ideas on this guys?

Default Clockspring

Got my letter also today in reference to 2007-2010 JKs. Letter says they'll replace the clock spring, steering wheel back cover and column shrouds. Hope they have plenty in stock.
