Issue

On certain buses, if the rear brake line is not oriented properly during brake maintenance, and the bus kneeling feature is activated, the brake line "P" clip may become pinched. As a result the rear brakes may not fully release. Operating the vehicle with the rear brakes partly engaged may generate enough heat to cause a fire, which could result in property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will install a clip designed to prevent improper routing of the rear brake line.
