What are the defects?

In some vehicles, the nut holding the cab tilt cylinder has not been tightened. Because of this, the cab may fall forwards when it's tilted.

What are the hazards?

There is potential for a crushing hazard if the cab falls forwards while a person is near or underneath the vehicle. This may result in serious injury or death.

What should consumers do?

Scania Australia will contact all affected owners. Owners are advised to contact their Scania dealer or branch as soon as possible to make an appointment to have the repairs carried out, free of charge.
