Navistar, Inc. "Navistar" is recalling certain model year 2016 IC Bus RE transit buses manufactured November 12, 2015, to November 16, 2015, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts 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.
Navistar will notify owners, and Ricon 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 December 28, 2016. Owners may contact Navistar customer service at 1-331-332-1590, or Ricon Customer Service at 1-800-322-2884.
