Paccar is recalling certain model year 2013 kenworth T400, T600, T700, T800, and W900 vehicles, manufactured from July 18, 2012, through August 10, 2012. Cap screws securing the main driveline to the forward rear axle and cap screws on the inter-axle driveline may not have been properly torqued.
Fasteners which are not properly torqued to specification can result in the driveline separating from the vehicle, disabling the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash. The separated component could also become a road hazard.
Paccar will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and re-torque the each of the affected fasteners, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during September 2012. Owners may contact Kenworth at 1-425-828-5440.
