Recall Summary: Corp. Micro Bird Inc. (Micro Bird) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 MB II, G5, and CT-Series transit buses manufactured January 1, 2006, to December 31, 2014, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts built by the Ricon Corporation.

Remedy: Micro Bird 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 is expected to begin in December 2015.
