All of the affected trucks were manufactured between the 1st of January 2009 and the 31st of December 2016.

The recall notice advises that in certain operating conditions vehicles equipped with a SPL250 driveshaft and specific Meritor rear axles may experience rear axle yoke failure potentially causing the driveshaft to disconnect.

What are the hazards?

If the rear axle yoke fails, the disconnected driveshaft may create a hazard for road users.

What should owners do?

Volvo Group Australia has begun contacting all impacted owners by direct mail to arrange inspection of the rear axle and replacement if required.

If a customer has concerns about their vehicle, they should contact their nearest authorised Volvo Group Australia repairing dealer or call 07 3178 3500 or email for more information.
