Adjustable Brake Pedal Assemblies for Trucks Recalled

January 06, 2010

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Kongsberg Power Product Systems I Inc. (KPPS) is recalling certain adjustable brake pedal assemblies installed as original equipment for use on various heavy-duty trucks. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some assemblies could contain a drive pin below specification that may become disengaged from the brake arm. This could cause separation or loosening of the pedal from the remainder of the assembly. If the drive pin becomes disengaged on the brake pedal assembly, it could result in a loss of vehicle braking function or cause the brake pedal to interfere with the throttle pedal function. Either condition could result in a vehicle crash. 

Each vehicle manufacturer will file a defect report and remedy plan for their vehicles that included these adjustable brake pedal assemblies as original equipment. KPPS is working with the vehicle manufacturers to identify trucks that may contain the defect. 

The affected trucks will be repaired free of charge. The safety recall began on Dec. 9. Owners may contact their vehicle manufacturer or KPPS at (610) 454-9955.
