 - May 9, 2012, 10:45 AM

The Cessna 560XL is the focus of an Airworthiness Directive prompted by reports of wheel inserts becoming loose and damaging brake assemblies. The AD requires an inspection of the torque lug and surrounding components (wheel base, side rim, lock ring) for damage such as corrosion, cracks, dents, bent areas, damaged or missing paint or primer, or wear on the metal. It also includes checking the bearing cup for corrosion, turned cup or clearance that exceeds limits and requires repair as applicable.
