Summary: New Flyer is recalling certain model year 2004-2011 transit buses, models: C35LF, C40LFR, D35LFR, D40LF, D40LFR, D60LF, D60LFA, D60LFR, DE35LFA, DE40LF, DE40LFA, DE40LFR, DE60LF, DE60LFA, DE60LFR, and XDE40. The drive shaft access panel may have insufficient strength or be not properly secured to the floor. If the drive shaft fails, debris from the driveshaft failure may enter the passenger compartment through the panel.
Consequence: If debris resulting from drive shaft failure enters the passenger compartment, it may result in injury to the bus occupants.
Remedy: New Flyer will notify the owners, and dealers will install a steel plate under the access panel on affected buses, free of charge. Owners may contact New Flyer at 1-204-224-6706 for more information.
