2008 INTERNATIONAL 7400
Problem: SUSPENSION:REAR:AXLE:NON-POWERED AXLE ASSEMBLY
On certain trucks, one or both rear axle housings may contain thinner material than what is necessary for normal vehicle operation. Over time, this thinner material may result in a fatigue failure of the rear axle housing, possibly in the location of the brake flange.
- A crack in the brake flange location of the rear axle housing may result in a wheel end lockup or wheel separation possibly resulting in property damage, personal injury, or death.
Dealers will inspect the vehicles rear axles and, if necessary, replace the axle housings. The recall began on may 18, 2007. Owners may contact international at 1-800-448-7815.2008 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 440-329-9179.2008 INTERNATIONAL 7400
