NHTSA Recall 12V429000

NHTSA Campaign ID number : 	12V429000
	
Vehicle Make / Model: 	    	Model Year(s):
     SPARTAN / K2 	    	2008-2009
     SPARTAN / MM 	    	2008-2010 2012-2013
Manufacturer: SPARTAN CHASSIS, INC. 	Mfr's Report Date: SEP 04, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V429000 	NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: SERVICE BRAKES, AIR:DRUM:CHAMBER
Potential Number of Units Affected: 491
Summary:
Spartan is recalling certain model year 2008-2013 K2 and MM motor home chassis, equipped with a Hendrickson independent front suspension. The front brake chambers may contact the upper control arm of the independent front suspension. Continued contact may result in damage sufficient enough to inhibit the full release of the brakes. If the brakes do not fully release, as they drag, heat could be generated causing the brakes to engage even further.
Consequence:
As the brakes self-engage, the driver could lose control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Spartan chassis will notify owners, and repair the vehicles. Spartan Chassis has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Spartan at 1-800-543-5008.
Notes:
Spartan's safety recall number is 12010. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
