Fontaine issues recall on International trucks

Jason Cannon February 26, 2013

Citing a potential problem with dual steering installed by Fontaine Modification, the company is recalling 811 street sweepers and refuse trucks built by Navistar International Corp.

The recall applies to International 4300, 4400, 7300, 7400 and 7500 model trucks manufactured between Jan. 1, 2011, and Jan. 9, 2013, and modified by Fontaine to be steered from either front seat.

Fontaine says certain retaining clips for the steering assembly may not be completely engaged and could come loose in the vehicles identified in the recall, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Without a retaining clip, steering may feel loose and be unresponsive, potentially increasing steering difficulty and the likelihood of a crash, NHTSA said.
