Defect SummaryBendix is recalling 1,457 mv-3 dash control valves manufactured from january 3 through january 22, 2008. some of the units were sold for oem applications on new motor vehicles and some were sold for aftermarket replacement equipment. an incorrect core pin in the injection mold of the molded valve body was used causing the valve body to be oversized in the double check valve seat area. this condition can allow the rubber double check valve to become lodged in the body opening under certain circumstances.
Consequence SummaryIf the double check valve becomes lodged, in the event of a primary reservoir failure, air pressure can leak past the lodged double check valve thereby depleting the secondary reservoir, causing a reduced ability for modulating the emergency brakes.
Corrective SummaryBendix will provide a remedy without charge for all affected mv-3 valves. bendix will notify vehicle manufacturers immediately. owners may contact bendix at 440-329-9000.
