Daimler Buses Recalls 161 Orion VII Buses Because of Heater Problem

April 29, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Daimler Buses is recalling 161 MY 2008-2009 Orion VII buses configured with a Mobile Climate Control (MCC) heater or a MCC defroster manufactured from October 2008 to March 2009.

The problem is that the blower motor mount screws may not have the proper torque, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website. If the four blower motor mount screws disconnect, the bracket can move. This poses the risk of an electrical terminal short circuit, which could possibly cause a fire.

MCC will inspect the buses for incorrect torque on the blower mounts and torque the screws correctly as required. There will be no charge for the service. If the inspection reveals any damage to the affected components, additional repairs will be made as necessary.

Owners can contact Daimler Buses at (905) 403-7807.
