Turtle Top is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Odyssey, 2008-2009 and 2011 Odyssey LT, 2007-2008 and 2010-2012 Odyssey XL, 2008 and 2012 Terra Transport and 2007-2008 and 2013 Van Terra vehicles equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon. The affected lifts are equipped with folding link arms that may have pivot holes that are too big, allowing the bearings to move out of position.
If the bearings move out of position, the stowed platform may have excessive movement resulting in failure of the platform mounting. This failure could cause the wheel chair lift platform to fall out of the vehicle when the doors are opened, increasing the risk of injury for the lift operator.
Turtle Top will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the link arms for damage or for displaced bearings. The platform will be inspected for cracks. Any damaged parts will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began on March 21, 2016. Owners may contact Turtle Top customer service at 1-574-831-4340, or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
