Remedy: PACCAR will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the torque of the castellated nut and tie rod, tightening it as necessary. If the tie rod stud and knuckle on units cannot be sufficiently torqued, the dealer will replace the knuckle and tie rod end assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 10, 2017. Owners may contact Peterbilt customer service at 1-940-591-4000 or Kenworth customer service at 1-425-828-5000.

2015-07-22 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-08-18)
Recall Summary: PACCAR Incorporated (PACCAR) is recalling certain model year 2016 Kenworth T440, T470, T660, T680, T800, T880, and W900 trucks manufactured February 16, 2015, to March 9, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with an SR-7 spring brake valve assembly that may have had the primary and secondary service brake applications installed in reverse. In the event of a failure in the primary or secondary circuit, the redundant circuit would not provide adequate service brake functionality. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 121, "Air Brake Systems."
Hazard: A loss of braking ability would increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Kenworth will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and correct the air line installations as required, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 17, 2015. Owners may contact Kenworth customer service at 1-425-828-5000. PACCAR's number for this recall is 15KWK.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2015-07-22 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-08-19)
Recall Summary: PACCAR Incorporated (PACCAR) is recalling certain model year 2011-2016 Kenworth T440, T470, T660, T680, and T880 trucks manufactured January 14, 2010, to May 22, 2015, and equipped with HID Headlamps and the option for Daytime Running Lamps (DRL). The DRLs are required to deactivate when the hazard warning lights are activated, however, the DRLs on these vehicles override the hazard flashing functionality after the brake pedal is pushed for more than two seconds. Normal hazard flashing functionality returns once the service brake is released. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Hazard: If the hazard warning lamps are overridden by the DRL, oncoming vehicles may fail to be warned, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Kenworth will notify owners, and dealers will update the cab controller software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 17, 2015. Owners may contact Kenworth customer service at 1-425-828-5000. Kenworth's number for this recall is 15KWL.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2015-05-11 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-06-27)
Recall Summary: PACCAR Incorporated (PACCAR) is recalling certain model year 2016 Kenworth T660, T680, T800, T880, and W900 trucks manufactured February 1, 2015, to April 20, 2015. During assembly, the affected vehicles did not undergo the rear wheel mounting torque verification process, and thus the rear wheels may be loose.
Hazard: If the rear wheel lug nuts are undertorqued, the wheels may separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Kenworth will notify owners, and dealers will verify that the rear wheel lug nuts are correctly tightened, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Kenworth customer service at 1-425-828-5000. Kenworth's number for this recall is 15KWG.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Recall Summary: PACCAR Incorporated (PACCAR) is recalling certain model year 2011-2016 Kenworth T270, T370, T440, T470, C500, C540, C550, T660, T800, W900, and 963 trucks manufactured November 1, 2010, to April 7, 2015. In the affected trucks, water may leak into the wiper motor.
Hazard: As water leaks in, the wiper may cease to function on the 'intermittent' setting, reducing the driver's visibility and increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, the water may cause corrosion which, over time, may result in an electrical short, increasing the risk of a fire.
Remedy: PACCAR is still developing and testing a remedy. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Kenworth customer service at 1-425-828-5000. PACCAR's number for this recall is 15KWF.
