Paccar recalling some Kenworth trucks

Paccar says it is recalling approximately 800 Kenworth 2010-2012 model year T4 and W9 series trucks manufactured Nov. 13, 2009, through Aug. 26, 2011.

A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the unit’s alternator wiring may come in contact with the exhaust manifold, which could lead to a fire.

Paccar says it will notify owners and dealers will re-route the alternator wiring at no cost. The recall is expected to begin in later this month.

Owners may contact Paccar at 1-425-468-7400 with the recall number 13KWJ.
