Summary:
PACCAR IS RECALLING 292 AFTERMARKET SAF HOLLAND FIFTH WHEELS SOLD FOR USE ON MY 2007 KENWORTH T800 SHORT HOOD, W900 LONG HOOD AND T600 TRACTOR/TRAILERS. IF THE PIVOT BOLT JOINT FOR THE LEVER BAR IS OVER TORQUED, THE SPACER DEFORMS, AND MAKES CONTACT WITH THE LEVER BAR. THIS CONDITION COUPLED WITH CORROSION ASSOCIATED WITH THE SEASONAL DRY OUT, CAN AFFECT THE LOCK SYSTEM OF THE FIFTH WHEEL, PREVENTING THE FIFTH WHEEL JAW FROM LATCHING SECURELY AROUND THE TRAILER KING PIN.
Consequence:
THE FIFTH WHEEL MAY FAIL TO LATCH WITHOUT THE OPERATOR'S KNOWLEDGE, CAUSING THE TRACTOR AND TRAILER TO DISENGAGE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
PACCAR IS WORKING WITH SAF-HOLLAND AND WILL INSPECT THE PIVOT BOLT JOINT FOR A DEFORMED SPACER AND REPLACE THE BOLT, WASHER AND SPACER WITH A HEX-HEAD SHOULDER BOLT AND WASHER FREE OF CHARGE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHECDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT PACCAR AT 1-415-828-5000 OR SAF-HOLLAND AT 1-231-773-3271.
