Power Steering Tensioner Pulley Damage

Broken pieces of the pulley can get caught between the pulley and the drive belt, causing the drive belt to come off, resulting in a sudden loss of power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash.

 

Summary

Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara vehicles. The power steering pump belt tension adjuster pulley has an outer portion that is made of plastic. Repeated heat stress can cause the plastic material to deteriorate, causing pieces of the pulley to break off.

 

Remedy

Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the power steering pump drive belt tension adjuster pulley, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 26, 2018. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-800-934-0934. Suzuki’s number for this recall is 4009. Note: The vehicles included in this recall were not previously recalled under 10V-250.
