RE: Harmonic Balancer Recall: Key Points
Thanks for all your help. The diagram & pics confirmed that I was, indeed, looking in the right place! But decided to take your advice and just call my dealer. I spoke to the service manager this morning and he gave me some good info too. First, he confirmed that my car was in the campaign range, and that I would get a letter if it had the affected part/s. Second, he told me that there was no way for him, or anyone else, to tell which part my car came w/ from the VIN#. He then checked the database they had on my car from the many visits to their service department. He spent about 10-15 minutes reviewing my records and came back w/ the following: Apparently my car had the possibly offending part replaced about 18 months ago. I went back through my invoices and found the following notation:
"1 112-035-13-00 VIBRATION AB
031280 CRANKSHAFT PULLEY WITH DAMPER, R&R/ REPL."
I think they replaced the HB, and the service manager said they had and that I almost certainly had removed it; but that I should stop by and let him check it for me. He said they often have a hard time telling the number themselves. I feel a lot better and will have it checked to make sure.
