Defect Description

Navistar, Inc. (Navistar) is recalling certain model year 1999-2002 International 4800 4x4 trucks manufactured June 30, 1999, through May 28, 2002, and equipped with Fabco TC-200 transfer cases. The field remedy that these vehicles received as part of Navistar recall 05501 (NHTSA recall number 03V-415), a double Cardan front driveshaft, may seize under certain conditions.

Defect Consequence

If the double Cardan joint of the driveshaft seizes, the front driveshaft may separate and under certain conditions, potentially cause a front axle lockup, increasing the risk of a crash.

Defect Corrective Action

Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will install front driveshaft guards at both ends of the shaft and lockout front wheel hubs. Any drive shaft that is found with loose or binding double Cardan joints at either end will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began on June 16, 2015. Owners may contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825. Navistar's number for this recall is 15506. Note: This recall supersedes recall 14V-520 which provided an interim-only remedy of disconnecting the front driveshaft.
