NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 09V229000
N/ANHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: POWER TRAIN:AXLE ASSEMBLY
Potential Number of Units Affected: 9

Summary: KENWORTH IS RECALLING 9 MY 2009 T800S VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH DANA FRONT AXLE. THE BRAKE SPIDER MOUNTING FASTENERS ATTACHING THE BRAKE SPIDER TO THE FRONT STEER AXLE FLANGE MAY HAVE RECEIVED INSUFFICIENT TORQUE DURING THE INSTALLATION PROCESS. THE INSUFFICIENT TORQUE MAY ALLOW THE BRAKE SPIDER FASTENERS AND BRAKE SPIDER TO BECOME LOOSE.

Consequence: THIS CAN ALLOW THE FASTENERS TO SHEAR AND FALL EITHER ONTO THE ROADWAY OR INTO THE DRUM BRAKE ASSEMBLY, POTENTIALLY ALLOWING THE BRAKE TO BIND AND CAUSING INCREASED STOPPING DISTANCE AND A CRASH COULD OCCUR.

Remedy: DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND REPLACE THE BRAKE SPIDER MOUNTING FASTENERS AND TORQUE THEM PROPERLY, AS WELL AS REVIEW THE BRAKE SPIDER AND STEER AXLE FLANGE HOLES FOR SIGNS OF VIBRATION AND FATIGUE AND REPLACE IF NECESSARY.
