Discussion:
Vehicles built between April 19, 2000 and June 26, 2000 were built with a front brake caliper anti-rattle clip retainer. This Technical Service Bulletin provides the installation procedures for the retainer.

NOTE: FRONT BRAKE CALIPER ANTI-RATTLE CLIP LEADING EDGE RETAINER (LONG) P/N 05066175AA AND TRAILING EDGE RETAINER (SHORT) P/N 05066176AA IS AVAILABLE FOR ALL SUBJECT RAM TRUCKS BUILT PRIOR TO JUNE 26, 2000. THESE RETAINERS CAN BE USED WITH THE VEHICLE'S EXISTING FRONT BRAKE ANTI-RATTLE CLIP TO HELP RETAIN LOOSE ANTI-RATTLE CLIPS TO THE BRAKE CALIPER ADAPTER.

Front Brake Caliper Anti-Rattle Clip Retainer Installation Procedure:

NOTE: THIS PROCEDURE IS SUPPLEMENTAL TO THE 2000 RAM TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL (PUBLICATION NO. 81-370-0008), PAGE 5-25, STEPS 4 THROUGH 6 OF THE DISC BRAKE SHOE INSTALLATION PROCEDURE. THIS PROCEDURE SHOULD ONLY BE USED IF THE VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH FRONT BRAKE CALIPER ANTI-RATTLE CLIP RETAINERS.

1. Insert the anti-rattle clip retainer into the anti-rattle clip as shown in Figure 1.

NOTE: TO ACCOMMODATE THE WIDTH DIFFERENCES IN THE DISC BRAKE CALIPER'S LEADING AND TRAILING ADAPTER RAILS, ONE RETAINER IS LONGER THAN THE OTHER. MAKE SURE THAT THE LONG RETAINER IS PLACED ON THE ANTI-RATTLE CLIP FOR THE LONG RAIL.

2. Rotate the anti-raftle clip retainer downward as shown in Figure 1.
