Wheelchair Lift Outer Barrier May Fail/FMVSS 403

In the event that a mobility device pushes into the outer barrier, the barrier may fail, increasing the risk of injury for the lift occupant.


NHTSA Campaign Number: 21V799

Manufacturer Van Hool N.V.


Potential Number of Units Affected 422



Van Hool N.V. (Van Hool) is recalling certain 2000-2014 C2045, 2016 CX45, and 1998-2013 T2145 vehicles equipped with Ricon Baylift Wheelchair Lifts. When the lift’s outer barrier is fully deployed, it may not withstand a sufficient amount of force, which could cause it to fail. As such, these lifts fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 403, “Platform Lift Systems.”



Ricon will reinforce the outer barrier with additional supports, free of charge. Owner notification letters were mailed on November 30, 2021. Owners may contact Van Hool’s customer service at 1-877-427-7278 or 1-407-656-7977. Van Hool’s number for this recall is P1528-SB2067.



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.nhtsa.gov.
