Paccar is recalling a little more than 800 Kenworth model year 2010-2012 T4 and W9 series vehicles manufactured Nov. 13, 2009, through Aug. 26, 2011.
A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin says the alternator wiring may come in contact with the exhaust manifold, which could lead to a vehicle fire.
Paccar will notify owners and dealers will re-route the alternator wiring, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late August.
Owners may contact Paccar at 1-425-468-7400 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236. Kenworth's recall number is 13KWJ.
