Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd—Fuso FN61F, FS52J and FV54J model Trucks

What are the defects?

It is possible that if an affected truck is driven at high speed for an extended period, a crack may develop in the propeller shaft centre bearing bracket/s. In such cases there is the remote possibility the bracket/s could fracture, causing the propeller shaft assembly to drop and resulting in sudden loss of drive. This is due to the bracket/s having insufficient strength if a vehicle is operated at high-speed.

What are the hazards?

Malfunction
