DETROIT, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Chrysler LLC on Wednesday said it would shut down its Belvidere, Illinois assembly plant for two weeks beginning on Monday in order to run down its inventory of unsold vehicles.

The privately held automaker, which is in a crucial round of contract talks with the United Auto Workers union, had been running the plant with three shifts.

The plant, which Chrysler points to as a success in its effort to shift to a less costly flexible manufacturing system, employs about 3,400 workers and produces the Dodge Caliber, Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot.
