Summary:
 GILLIG IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010-2011 LOWFLOOR BUSES EQUIPPED WITH CUMMINS ENGINES. THE V-BAND CLAMP ASSEMBLY USED TO CONNECT THE INLET AND OUTLET CONE SECTIONS TO THE DIESEL OXIDATION CATALYST (DOC) DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER (DPF) INCLUDE A T-BOLT WHICH CAN FRACTURE AND FAIL WHEN SUBJECTED TO STRESS OR LOAD. A FRACTURE OR FAILURE OF THE T-BOLT MAY CAUSE THE CLAMP TO LOOSEN AND THE INLET OR OUTLET SECTIONS ATTACHED TO THE DOC/DPF HOUSING TO DISCONNECT.
Consequence:
 IF THE INLET OR OUTLET SECTIONS DISCONNECT, HOT EXHAUST GASES CAN VENT PRIOR TO EXITING THE TAILPIPE, CREATING THE RISK OF COMBUSTION AND A FIRE. IF BOTH CLAMPS FAIL, THERE IS A RISK IN SOME APPLICATIONS THAT THE DOC/DPF HOUSING MAY DETACH COMPLETELY, CREATING A ROAD HAZARD.
Remedy:
 GILLIG IS WORKING WITH CUMMINS TO IDENTIFY OWNERS. CUMMINS IS HANDLING THE OWNER NOTIFICATION AND REMEDY FOR THIS CAMPAIGN PLEASE SEE NHTSA RECALL 11E-031. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CUMMINS AT 1-812-377-5000.
