Paccar is recalling about 3,511 model year 2022 Peterbilt 579 tractors equipped with chassis fairings.
According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents, the bolts that hold the chassis fairing step assembly in the closed position may loosen and fracture the latch attachment, causing the fairing assembly to flex. A partially unsecured cab step can unexpectedly move while entering or exiting the cab, increasing the risk for injury, the recall states.
Dealers will add new fasteners and a bracket, for free, to fix the issue. Owners can contact Peterbilt customer service at 1-940-591-4220 with recall number 22PBA. NHTSA’s recall number is 22V-016.
