Glaval Bus is recalling certain model year 2007-2012 transit buses, models: Entourage, Sport, Universal, Titan, Titan II, Apollo, Primetime, and Concord; and manufactured January 1, 2007, through December 3, 2012. The buses are equipped with a Ricon manufactured wheelchair lift which has an optional armored pendant cable. The cable may have been installed such that it doesn’t clear the wheelchair lift and without a protective cover, or a misinstalled protective cover.
The cable may contact the power lug at the base of the wheel chair lift causing a short circuit that could result in a fire.
Glaval Bus will notify owners and direct them to contact Ricon. Ricon will provide a supplemental cover kit and instructions, free of charge. This recall campaign is expected to begin in January, 2013. Owners may contact Glaval Bus at 1-574-262-2212 or Ricon at 1-818-267-3000.
