Safety Recall, SC0387, Haldex Life Seal Brand 30/30 Long Stroke Brake Actuator – 2015-2016 Mack CXU & LEU

NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V025
Manufacturer Mack Trucks, Inc.

Internal Rubber Diaphragm Incomplete Attachment

If the diaphragm is not completely attached, there may be internal leakage from the service section past the diaphragm, potentially trapping air pressure in the parking brake section. This air pressure in turn, if not vented, may prevent full release of the actuator unit, and may induce brake drag and may result in overheated wheelend service brakes, increasing the risk of a fire.
