Federal-Mogul Corp. is recalling 22,689 replacement control arm assemblies in certain older model Chrysler vehicles after it found a fault that could cause vehicles to crash.

The Michigan-based auto parts supplier said a part of the assembly, a ball stud, could wear through the assembly housing, causing the driver to lose steering control, according to a  notice filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The control arm assembly is the main link between the vehicle frame and the wheels and allows the wheels to go up and down independently of the chassis.

While more than 22,000 assemblies have been recalled, Federal-Mogul said it was not sure how many vehicles are affected.

Federal-Mogul spokesman Jim Burke said the number of these parts on each wheel depends on the type of suspension, but usually is one or two each.

The recall affects six Chrysler-brand vehicles from the model years 1995 to 2006. It includes the Chrysler Sebring convertible and the Chrysler Sebring sedan for the model years 1996 to 2006.
