What are the defects?

There have been instances where the bellows brackets have fractured. The bellows brackets fracture at the upper torque rod attachment. This is because the suspension brackets side wall is approx. 10 mm narrower than specified dimension.

What are the hazards?

If the bracket was to completely fail it can intrude into the wheel well and the impact can injure passengers inside the bus.

What should consumers do?

It is important that you contact your Scania Dealer /Scania Branch to make an appointment to have the above campaign carried out. This will allow them to order parts in advance that are required for your vehicle. All work carried out (parts and labour) related to this recall will be at no cost to you.
