This notice is being sent in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

Great Dane LLC has decided that certain model year 2023 Great Dane Everest reefer and Champion dry van trailers equipped with Holland axles provided with Haldex disc brakes manufactured at the Haldex Monterrey Facility may contain an improperly installed retaining clip.

The brake pad retaining assembly on certain Haldex air disc brakes (ADB) may contain an improperly installed retaining clip. Under certain road use conditions, an improperly installed retaining clip may enable the retainer bar and retaining clip to detach from the brake and may allow the brake pad to loosen. A loose brake pad may reduce brake effectiveness, and may cut a tire valve resulting in a flat tire, and eventually can cause damage to the brake pad or wheel. A detached retaining clip or retainer bar may come in contact with other vehicle parts and may fall onto the roadway, creating road debris and a potential traffic hazard. Any of the above scenarios can increase the risk of a crash.

Haldex, their representative(s), or other trained technicians will inspect and, if necessary, repair the improperly assembled spring bracket assembly. A remedied component has the retainer bar fully seated in the notch with the retaining clip fully protruding through the retaining clip window on the retainer bar.

Repair time should be approximately 1 hour.

If you had this repair performed before you received this letter, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for the cost of obtaining a pre-notification remedy of the problem associated with this recall. For more information contact Great Dane Customer Service at (877) 369-3493.

Federal regulations require that any vehicle lessor receiving this recall notice must forward a copy of this notice to the lessee within ten days.

If you conclude that Great Dane LLC has not enabled you to remedy this condition without charge and/or in a reasonable time, a complaint may be submitted to the:

Chronology :

Sept. 13, 2022 Great Dane received a report from a customer about an on-road incident that appeared to involve the subject component. The incident appeared to involve the retaining clip installation described above. Great Dane reported the incident to our axle supplier.

Sept. 15, 2022 a second incident was reported that appeared unrelated based on the initial information received. The axle manufacturer also was provided photographs of apparent clip misalignment on un-installed units. Great Dane began working to isolate affected unit in our manufacturing facilities to prevent shipping.

Sept. 19, 2022 Haldex began sending inspection teams to Great Dane manufacturing locations and trailer customer locations.

Sept. 21, 2022 Haldex confirmed that the second incident reported by the trailer manufacturer did in fact involve an improperly assembled brake retaining clip. This was confirmed by onsite inspection of the subject trailer showing that the brake retaining clip and retainer bar were missing. Haldex’s investigation indicated that even though overall trailer braking function was minimally impacted, a loose retainer bar or retaining clip could hit other vehicle components, and may result in the retaining clip or retainer bar hitting the roadway and creating a road hazard.

Sept. 21, 2022,Haldex determined that an unreasonable risk to motor vehicle safety resulting from the improperly assembled clip could not be ruled out and reported that to Great Dane

Sept. 30, 2022, Great Dane filed the initial notice of defect with the NHTSA
