Summary:
      Coach and Equipment Mfg Corp. "Coach and Equipment" is recalling certain 2013-2014 Coach and Equipment Condor LT, 2013-2017 Phoenix and Metro Lite and 2015 Pegasus transit buses, equipped with Ricon S-Series and K-Series Titanium Wheelchair Lifts. The wheelchair lift positioning input cam may fail while the lift is in use, allowing the platform to travel higher than the vehicle floor height.
Consequence:
      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.
Remedy:
      Coach and Equipment has notified owners, and Ricon servicing dealers will replace the input cam, free of charge. The recall began September 27, 2018. Owners may contact Coach and Equipment customer service at 1-800-724-8464 or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884 or by emailing the Ricon at Admin18E044"wabtec.com.
