The recall affects vehicles with an Eaton AMT

 

Western Star trucks equipped with an Eaton automated manual transmission (AMT) clutch assembly have been issued a recall notice.

The internal clutch component may be outside specifications and fail, which may prevent clutch disengagement, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) explains.

"If the internal clutch component fails and there is enough drive line torque in the transmission, the parking brake may be overcome while the vehicle is idling in neutral, causing the vehicle to move unintentionally and increasing the risk of an accident or injury."

Affected owners should contact their authorised Western Star Truck dealer for repair at no charge, ACCC advises.

The affected units were manufactured between April 10, 2017 and July 2, 2018.
