Corp. Micro Bird Inc. "Micro Bird" is recalling certain 2012-2018 Micro Bird G5, MBII, and T-Series school buses, equipped with certain S-Series and K-Series Titanium Wheelchair Lifts, models K200, K201, K550, K551, S200, S2201, S550 and S551. The wheelchair lift positioning input cam may fail while the lift is in use, allowing the platform to travel higher than the vehicle's floor height. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 403, "Platform Lift Systems."
If the wheelchair lift platform stops above the vehicle floor, the wheelchair user can tip inwards toward the vehicle when exiting the lift, increasing their risk of injury.
Micro Bird will notify owners, and Ricon dealers will replace the injection molded cam with a new aluminum machined cam. The recall is expected to begin October 22, 2018. Owners may contact Micro Bird customer service at 1-819-477-2012. Micro Bird's number for this recall is 18-077-RUS.
