FCA/Stellantis Position Statement: Steering System

FCA/Stellantis released a position statement related to steering system inspection and part replacement after a collision.

The FCA/Stellantis Steering System Position Statement states: "If the vehicle is involved in a collision where the airbag has been deployed or the steering wheel is visibly deformed, then steering column replacement is required. Internal component damage from such an event may not be visible; however, steering column replacement is required."

The document also provides information on the steering rack/steering gear inspection after a collision. A list of conditions is provided that, if present, will require diagnosis and testing be performed to correct the condition.

You can view FCA/Stellantis Position Statements on the Repairability Technical Support (RTS) website.
