Gillig LLC "Gillig" is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 Low Floor transit buses manufactured April 1, 2010 to October 30, 2015, equipped with Recaro Ergo-M Commercial Bus Driver Seats. The affected seats have J-Brackets that may be missing welds which could allow the seat belt anchorage assembly to separate from the J-Bracket.
If the seatbelt anchorage assembly separates from the J-Bracket, the bus driver may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash increasing their risk of injury.
Gillig will notify the owners, and dealers will inspect the seats to determine if welds are missing. Any J-Bracket that is missing welds will be removed and replaced, free of charge. The recall began on March 1, 2016. Owners may contact Gillig customer service at 1-800-735-1500.
