Defect Summary: Halcore Group, Inc. (Halcore) is recalling certain model year 2006-2013 American Emergency Vehicles (AEV) Ambulance Wheelchair Vans manufactured January 2, 2006 to March 15, 2013, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation. The affected lifts are equipped with folding link arms that may have pivot holes that are too big, allowing the bearings to move out of position. 
Consequence Summary: If the bearings move out of position, the stowed platform may have excessive movement resulting in failure of the platform mounting. This failure could cause the wheel chair lift platform to fall out of the vehicle when the doors are opened, increasing the risk of injury for the lift operator. 
Corrective Summary: Halcore will notify the 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 began on January 13, 2016. Owners may contact Ricon Customer Service at 1-800-322-2884 or AEV customer service at 1-800-374-9749. Halcore's number for this recall is 15E-068. 
Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
