Component: SUSPENSION:REAR:AXLE:NON-POWERED AXLE ASSEMBLY

Cottrell is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 trailers equipped with a Meritor axle. The bearing system has exhibited low durability life in certain vehicle applications.
Prolonged use of the system in these applications can result in the degradation of the bearing grease, thereby potentially resulting in a bearing failure and subsequent wheel end fire.
Cottrell is working with the Meritor to identify and repair the vehicles that contain the subject axles free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during August 2012. This recall campaign supersedes previous recall campaign 11V-594. Trailers that were repaired under the previous campaign will also need to be repaired under this campaign. Owners may contact Meritor OnTrac Performance Plus Call Center at 1-866-668-7221, option 5.
