Autocar is recalling 1,048 2013-2016 model-year Xpeditor trucks because their brake pedals might detach, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The trucks — manufactured from Aug. 15, 2012, to Jan. 5 of this year — are configured with dual-drive, right-hand-stand-up cabs. The locking cotter pin on the brake pedal-mounting bracket may not be fully engaged, allowing the brake pedal to detach, according to NHTSA.

Xpeditor trucks are widely used for refuse collection.

Autocar dealers will correct the installation of, or install, the cotter pin. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin March 16. Owners can reach Autocar customer service at (765) 489-5499. Autocar’s number for this recall is ACX-1601.
