New Safety Recall Advanced Communication – W71

 

FCA US LLC (FCA US) has announced a safety recall on certain aftermarket Mopar Drivers Side View Mirror Part Numbers: 68147863AS, 68050299AA.

 

REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL

Some of the above driver’s side view mirrors part numbers may have been built with a driver’s side view mirror glass that was not properly adhered to the backing plate during the manufacturing process. This condition may result in the mirror glass falling off. A missing driver side mirror glass reduces visibility and could result in a vehicle crash without prior warning.

 

The condition described above does not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No.111 S6.1 requires that “Each multipurpose passenger vehicle, truck and bus, other than a school bus, with a GVWR of 4,536 kg or less shall have either (a) Mirrors that conform to the requirements of S5.; or (b) Outside mirrors of unit magnification, each with not less than 126 cm2 of reflective surface”. Both S5. and S6.1(b) require mirrors of unit magnification. Rearview mirror glass that is not properly adhered to the backing plate may become detached and no longer provide a reflective surface.

 

SERVICE ACTION

FCA US will conduct a voluntary safety recall to inspect the manufacturing date and if required, replace the driver’s side view mirror glass or mirror assembly. Dealers will be notified of the launch of this safety recall by way of established communication methods.  This recall is estimated to launch in 4th Quarter of 2020.
