Component not known


02V202
Certain medium duty trucks equipped with an 11,000-pound rear axle have a condition where the rear axle anchor plate may fracture. Under certain rebound, braking or cornering maneuvers, the rear axle would be free to move fore and aft and provide unexpected steering inputs to the vehicle. If this happens while the vehicle is moving, a crash could result.
Dealers will install a new rear axle anchor plate and spacer. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during August 2002. Owners who do not receive the free instructions within a reasonable time should contact GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

An unrestrained occupant could fall out of the van and be injured.
Dealers will install a new actuator assembly to the power sliding door. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began April 18, 2001.
