Potential Number of Units Affected 5,438

 

Summary

MEKRA Lang North America, LLC. (MEKRA Lang North America) is recalling certain Main Mirror Housings. Due to improper adhesive bonding, the mirror glass may detach from the mirror carrier plate of the mirror assembly for truck cabs.

 

Remedy

Mekra Lang notified manufacturers, and their dealers will inspect and replace the mirrors, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact MEKRA Lang North America customer service at 1-803-337-5264.

 

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.


The issue seems to be similar to the defect reported by PACCAR under recall number 19V340, in which MEKRA was reported to be the supplier. If that is the case, please amend your filing to include this population of mirrors as well.
