2017 FORD E-150 - EQUIPMENT ADAPTIVE
Mobility Specialists, Inc. (Mobility Specialists) is recalling certain 2014-2017 Ford E-150 and Transit vans modified to be equipped with Ricon S-Series and K-Series wheel chair lifts. The wheelchair lift positioning input cam may fail while the lift is in use, allowing the platform to travel higher than the vehicle's floor height.
HazardIf the wheelchair lift platform stops above the vehicle floor, the wheelchair user can tip inwards toward the vehicle when exiting the lift, increasing their risk of injury.
Consumer ActionMobility Specialists, working with Ricon, has notified the owners. Ricon will provide instructions and materials for replacing defective parts. The recall began April 3, 2019. Owners may contact Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
