For vehicles modified with a Ricon wheelchair lift by Mobility Works, the wheelchair lift platform can crack and as a result separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle lift door. Additionally, the link arms of the lifts may have pivot holes that are too large, allowing the bearings to move out of position. Either concern would cause the platform to fall out of the vehicle when the door is opened. This would increase risk of injury.
The driver's side seat may separate from the body of the vehicle in an accident, due to an improperly welded seat track component. This could result in increased risk of occupant injury.
