Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd—Fuso Fighter and Heavy Trucks

What are the defects?

Investigations have shown that moisture may enter the park brake chambers causing corrosion to form on the internal springs. In extreme cases, there is the remote possibility the spring could break and air leak from the brake chamber's diaphragms. This would result in the park brake unexpectedly being applied and locking-on during normal operation.

What are the hazards?

Malfunction
