LITTLE ROCK — PACCAR is recalling 17,641 of their 2018-2020 Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks.

The recall covers Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks produced from Aug. 1, 2017-May 31, 2019.

The trucks have been recalled due to a defect in the Dana D-Series axle steer arm fasteners. The fasteners attach the steering arm to the steering knuckle and may fail. The involved component is the Dana Integrated Air Disc Brake D-Series steer axle, part number B05-6051.

Failure of both fasteners can result in a loss of steering control, which could increase the risk of crash or injury.

The reported failures have occurred during low-speed maneuvering operations when steering forces are highest.

The cause of the failure is still under investigation.

The following models are covered:

Kenworth
  • T270
  • T370
  • T440
  • T470
  • T660
  • T680
  • T800
