Spartan Recalls 212 for V-Band Clamp Assembly

Spartan recalls 212 for V-band clamp assembly


Kelly Cauthorn posted on August 29, 2011 10:53

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Spartan Chassis, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2010, 2011 and 2012 RVs, models MM, K2, K3, Bus, Furion, Gladiator and Metro Star, manufactured from Sept. 29, 2010 through June 20, 2011, equipped with a Cummins ISB, ISC, ISL or ISX diesel engine. The V-band clamp assembly, part numbers Q187684, Q187685, and Q187686, used to connect the inlet and outlet cone selections to the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC)/Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) include a T-bolt which can fracture and fail when subjected to stress or load. A fracture or failure of the T-bolt may cause the clamp to loosen and the inlet or outlet sections attached to the DOC/DPF housing to disconnect.

If the inlet or outlet sections disconnect, hot exhaust gasses can vent prior to exiting the tailpipe, creating the risk of combustion and a fire. If both clamps fail, there is a risk in some applications that the DOC/DPF housing may detach completely, creating a road hazard.

Spartan is working with Cummins to identify and notify owners of the recall campaign. Repairs will be performed by authorized Cummins dealers free of charge. Owners may contact Cummins at 1.812.377.5000 or Spartan at 1.800.543.5008 - option 5.

Cummins' Recall Campaign Number is C1154.
Owners 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 www.safercar.gov.
