Additional information:

Among the 99 recalls the NHTSA has announced this October, comes news of the following:

Truck-Lite Company, LLC (“Truck-Lite”) has recalled an estimated 27,026 model year right-hand incandescent halogen headlights, part numbers Truck-Lite 27628C, 27628C7, Navistar 4049970C91, 4049970C92, 4049970C93 and 4049970C94, for installation on Navistar International LT-series trucks.

The headlights may have incorrect “VOL” markings when they should, in fact, be marked as “VOR”, with the “L” designation meaning a left-side vehicle mount and the “R” designation meaning a right-side vehicle mount. These headlights are correctly designed to be visually/optically aimed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment.”

According to the NHTSA, if the headlights have incorrect markings, when they are replaced, the headlights may be aimed incorrectly, decreasing visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.

Truck-Lite will notify owners and will send them a “DOT VOR” label to install, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 12, 2018. Owners may contact International Trucks Customer Service Center at 1-800-448-7825.
