The following 4 recalls apply to nearly all model 964's from 1989-1992:

Campaign Number: 96V147000 Date: 1996-Aug-08
Component: Steering: Wheel And Handle Bar

Campaign Number: 93V204000 Date: 1993-Dec-07
Component: Electrical System: Fuses And Circuit Breakers

Defect Summary: AFTER THE ENGINE HAS BEEN TURNED OFF, THE REAR HEATER WILL AUTOMATICALLY OPERATE IN ORDER TO DISSIPATE HEAT IN THE ENGINE HEATING SYSTEM. DURING THIS OPERATION, THE RESISTOR FOR THE REAR HEATER BLOWER CAN BECOME OVERLOADED DUE TO A BINDING OR SEIZED REAR HEATER BLOWER.

Anyone know what kind of noise this fault would make?

I have a noise in my steering when turning the wheel at very low speeds (e.g. parking). There is a loud click. Much like that made when the blinker catch engages, but I don't believe it's that because it happens at random positions of lock on the wheel.

Thanks,
Dave

Question

What is the life of a recall? If you take a 15 year old car in, will they do the recall work for free? Or is there a time limit on them?
Just curious.

No time limits on NHTSA issued recalls. Those are safety issues and they have no expiration date.

Great question. Laws will vary among other countries but in the US I found this info from the NHTSA web site:

There is a limitation based on the age of the vehicle. In order to be eligible for a free remedy, the vehicle cannot be more than 10 years old on the date the defect or noncompliance is determined. Under the law, the age of the vehicle is calculated from the date of sale to the first purchaser. For example, if a defect is found in 2003 and a recall ordered, manufacturers are required to make the correction available at no charge only for vehicles purchased new in 1994 through 2003. However, consumers should realize that even though manufacturers are not obligated to remedy safety defects in older cars, a safety problem might still exist. If you receive notification of a defect on a vehicle older than 10 years, take the responsibility to have your car repaired at your own expense ľ and eliminate unnecessary safety risks.
