Navistar Recall Due to Loose Brake System Sensor

LISLE, Ill. – Navistar, Inc. is recalling certain model-year 2022 International CVs (commercial vehicles) which might have been produced with a brake-pressure sensor not tightened to the correct torque.

The concern for the 15 vehicles in the recall population, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Part 573 Safety Recall Report 22V-355, “The suspect population contains a newly designed hydraulic brake line assembly containing the brake pressure sensor that was not tightened to the correct torque.”

An improperly tightened pressure sensor could result in a minor brake-fluid leak when the brakes are applied,” the report further detailed.

“A minor leak in the hydraulic brake system on application can result in a soft pedal and in an emergency stop situation may increase the vehicle stopping distance possibly resulting in a vehicle crash.”

The remedy is tightening of the brake-pressure sensor at a Navistar International dealer. Dealers and owners are scheduled to receive first-class mail notification by July 18th.
