Westward Scania recalls certain R-Serie and S-Serie lorries

April 22, 2021

Westward Scania is carrying out a voluntary recall of R-Serie and S-Serie.

The affected vehicles were produced between 2019 to 2020.

A safety issue has been identified with the affected vehicles where a fused wiring harness incorrectly installed in the vehicles could lead to chafing on a sharp edge. This may lead to a number of serious faults in the vehicle. The brake system can go in to pneumatic mode with no EBS/ABS functionality but full brake power will be available. The vehicle’s outer lighting could fail. It would no longer be possible to switch the engine off. A short circuit with a heating effect could cause fire, even once the vehicle’s engine has been switched off. The factory notes that as it is a fused cable, the risk of fire should be minimal or none.

There are approximately 171 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland.


What to do:

Westward Scania will directly contact all affected customers by post advising them to make an appointment with their local Authorised Repairer where any necessary repairs/replacements of parts will be carried out.

If you believe that your vehicle may be impacted by this recall, then you can contact Westward Scania’s Contact Centre on 071 9634500 or email
