Navistar is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 International brand 9900, LoneStar, PayStar, ProStar, TranStar, and WorkStar commercial trucks, manufactured from August 01, 2011, through July 31, 2012, and equipped with front brake linings listed as feature codes 0504501 or 0504504. The brake S-Cam tube bracket assemblies on the steer axles may fracture.
Brake assembly fractures may result in an inoperative brake on the affected wheel. This will cause the vehicle to pull to one side unexpectedly during breaking and/or increase the stopping distance. Either result may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will replace S-Cam tube bracket assemblies free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin by January 21, 2013. Owners may contact Navistar at 1-800-448-7825.
