T-Fitting Failure Causing Air Leak/FMVSS 121, 106

If the parking brake applies unexpectedly, there would be an increased risk of a crash.

 

Summary

Elgin Sweeper Company Inc. (Elgin) is recalling certain 2015-2018 Elgin Broom Bear, Crosswind, Eagle, Road Wizard, and Whirl Wind street sweepers. The T-fitting installed on the air brake system may fail, causing air to leak, potentially resulting in the parking brake applying unexpectedly. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 121, "Air Brake Systems," and 106, "Brake Hoses."

 

Remedy

Elgin will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the street sweepers and replace the T-fittings, as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Elgin customer service at 1-877-342-5374.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
