Gillig LLC "Gillig" is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Low Floor transit buses manufactured July 8, 2013, to February 7, 2015 and equipped with disc brakes. The front left and right brake air hoses that connect to the brake chamber may touch and rub against the air bag suspension towers.
If the front brake hoses rub the air bag suspension tower, a hole may develop and the resulting air leak may reduce the brake air pressure, lengthening the distance needed to stop the transit bus and increasing the risk of a crash.
Gillig has notified owners, and dealers will replace the brake hoses with shorter ones that will not contact the suspension tower, free of charge. The recall began on April 28, 2015. Owners may contact Gillig customer service at 1-800-735-1500.
