Summary: Prevost is recalling certain model year 2009-2013 Volvo Bus 9700 coaches manufactured from April 2009 through June 2012. The wheelchair lift may be missing maintenance safety pins and/or the wheelchair lift cylinders may not be the proper length, preventing the proper use of maintenance safety pins.
Consequence: With either the maintenance safety pins missing or not able to be used, the wheelchair lift may not be safely stowed in place, increasing the risk of injury to those working on, or around, the lift.
Remedy: Prevost will notify owners, and dealers will add the safety pins and/or verify that they work properly, as needed, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in December 2012. Owners may contact Prevost at 1-418-883-2888.
