Summary
Obs is recalling 3 ricon wheelchair lifts which it installed on MY 2006 blue bird and Chevrolet Express school buses. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 404, "platform lift installations in motor vehicles." The threshold warning system may not detect the presence of a wheelchair or mobility aid user in a certain spot within the defined threshold area.
Actions
Obs is working with ricon to correct the wheelchair lifts free of charge (please see 07E095). Owners may contact ricon at 1-818-267-3000 or obs at 1-330-453-3725.
