Daimler Trucks North America is recalling more than 11,000 trucks in two separate orders.
One recall affects about 6,105 model year 2021 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700 trucks in which the clutch flange could break. If flange failure occurs, loose parts could fall into the clutch pressure plate assembly, resulting in clutch disengagement.
DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the clutch on the affected trucks. Owners can contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL-881. NHTSA’s recall number is 21V-209.
The other recall affects some 5,111 model year 2019-2021 Western Star 4700 and 5700 models in which the ground harness wiring may be undersized and may cause a connector to melt, which could stall the engine.
Daimler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ground harness for free. DTNA’s recall number is FL-880, and NHTSA’s recall number is 21V-206.
