Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 VAH, VNL, and VNM trucks manufactured March 4, 2013, to April 28, 2014.
Due to the bolts holding the disc brake caliper to the backing plate not being tightened to the specified torque, the disc brake caliper may detach from the backing plate.
If the disc brake caliper detaches from the backing plate it can affect the brakes to that particular wheel causing the vehicle to “pull” to the left or right, increasing the risk of a crash.
Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and tighten the bolts to specification, as necessary, free of charge.
The recall began October 10, 2014.
Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-528-6586.
Volvo’s number for this recall is RVXX1403.
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.
