Default NEW......T36 Alternator Recall

Hi Guys,

Bugger, another recall. This time the alternator on 2012-2014 WK Grand Cherokee.

Check your VIN on the list

https://www.productsafety.gov.au/rec...grand-cherokee

Seems to be the JFFG series.

We are JFFM, can't see ours on the list luckily, but will double check with the dealer.

Cheers,
Sally

I believe the recall is just for the petrol models.

Hi Derek,

Yes, glad we are not on there!

Could just be petrol models, thanks Benn.

Yes, no worries at all after the S49 recall, no noticeable changes to fuel econ.

Cheers,
Sally

Anyone else received the letter? It sounds quite scary and you would think they would down play it. Also how do they not have parts yet!?

Anyone know what kind of alternator will they replace it with?

I have a 2012 and don't have the variable voltage alternators you have in the later years.

I'd much prefer to have one of the same one as I have today.
