Make / Models :
Model/Build Years:
AUTOCAR / ACX
2008
Manufacturer : AUTOCAR, LLC Mfr's Report Date : MAY 21, 2008
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 08V236000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: STEERING
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 7
Summary:
 AUTOCAR IS RECALLING 7 MY 2008 ACX CHASSIS ASSEMBLIES WHICH WERE SOLD TO GROVE U.S. LLC. GROVE CONVERTS THESE CHASSIS INTO CRANES. THE TELESCOPIC STEERING SHAFT BETWEEN THE IN-CAB TILT STEER GEARBOX COMPONENTS AND THE FLOOR-MOUNTED STEERING GEARBOX IS TOO LONG, AND ONE OF THE PINCH BOLTS ON THE SHAFT MAY NOT BE SECURED PROPERLY.
Consequence:
 INSUFFICIENT TORQUE ON THE FASTENER THAT CLAMPS THE ASSEMBLIES TOGETHER COULD RESULT IN A LOSS OF STEERING CONTROL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
 AUTOCAR IS WORKING WITH GROVE TO HAVE THE CHASSIS INSPECTED AND WILL REPLACE THE NECESSARY COMPONENTS FREE OF CHARGE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT AUTOCAR AT 1-765-489-6001.
Notes:
 AUTOCAR RECALL NO. A-0802. CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.
