The Hazard!

An internal clutch component may be outside specifications and fail which, in special circumstances could cause this clutch component to inhibit clutch departure. In this rare event of such a failure, transmission of enough driveline torque to overcome the parking brakes while the vehicle is idling in neutral may occur and cause unintended vehicle motion.

What to do...

Owners are requested to contact an Authorised Freightliner Dealership who will re-programme the Transmission Electronic Control Units (TECUs) with updated software to mitigate the possibility of unintended vehicle movement.
