Due to loose fasteners, the door pull portion of the door pad assembly may separate from the door when used.

REMEDY: PACCAR will notify owners and dealers will inspect and torque the fasteners to the correct specification, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin at the end of February 2014. Customers may contact Paccar at 1-425-468-7400. Peterbilt's number for this recall is 1213G.
