KENWORTH IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010 T2000, T660, T800 AND W900 VEHICLES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN JULY 30, 2009 AND SEPTEMBER 18, 2009. THE REAR AXLE OUTER END HUB MAY HAVE NOT BEEN PRIMED WITH OIL PROPERLY DURING THE REAR AXLE INSTALLATION PROCESS. POTENTIAL LACK OF OIL MAY CAUSE THE OUTER END BEARING TO HEAT UP AND/OR SEIZE, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN THE OVERHEATING OF THE WHEEL END.
A WHEEL END FIRE MAY OCCUR, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE BEARINGS, SEALS AND WILL ADD OIL TO THE OUTER END HUB AS WELL AS INSPECT RACES AND AXLE HOUSING FOR DAMAGE AND REPLACING AS NECESSARY
