2006 INTERNATIONAL 7400
Problem: TRAILER HITCHES:FIFTH WHEEL ASSEMBLY
On certain vehicles equipped with air operated fifth wheel slides and an msva 7-pack accessory controller, the 7-pack can allow water to contaminate its circuit board. This could result in inadvertent operation of the fifth wheel slide control.
- If the slide control actuates while the vehicle is in motion, momentum from the trailer can cause the fifth wheel to slide without input from the driver, which could result in a crash without warning.
Dealers will relocate the msva 7-pack to a less water intensive environment. A new msva 7-pack base, that has been improved to prevent water intrusion, and all air accessory solenoids will be installed free of charge. The recall began on august 5, 2005. Owners may contact international at 1-800-448-7825.2006 INTERNATIONAL 7400
On certain trucks, the rear-rear axle brake slack adjusters may contact the rear axle housing preventing the brakes from being fully applied possibly causing extended stopping distances.
- Extended stopping distances can contribute to a vehicle crash that may result in property damage, personal injury or death.
Dealers will replace all rear-rear axle brake spiders with a spider that has a different brake group clocking angle free of charge. The recall began on june 29, 2007. Owners may contact international at 1-800-448-7825.2006 INTERNATIONAL 7400
Problem: PARKING BRAKE
On certain 6x4 or 6x6 trucks with air brakes or tractors with air brakes and equipped with bendix sr-7 spring brake modulating valves, the internal rubber check valve may leak causing a delay in the application of the spring brakes to park the vehicle after the operator pulls the dash valve button.
- This could delay or failure in applying the parking brakes which could result in a vehicle roll away, increasing the risk of a crash.
International is working with bendix to repair these vehicles (please see 07e-037). Bendix will install a check valve repair kit for the affected sr-7 spring brake modulating valve free of charge. The recall began on september 28, 2007. Owners may contact bendix at 440-329-9000 and international at 440-329-9179.2006 INTERNATIONAL 7400
