What are the defects?

The alternator regulator may fail, resulting in an uncontrolled charge into the storage batteries.  This may create a build up of excess hydrogen sulphide gas (H2S) due to lack of ventilation in the battery enclosure.

What are the hazards?

The concentration of gas build up in the battery compartment and an ignition source could cause a spark to ignite the gas in the battery enclosure. There is a risk of fire or explosion resulting in serious injury, property damage or death.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified of the recall and asked to contact Bus and Coach Sales Australasia Pty Ltd to arrange for inspection and repair of their vehicle, if necessary.

Consumers can contact Bus and Coach Sales Australasia Pty Ltd on 1300 287 377 or 07 3386 1034 or via http://www.bcsa.net.au/contact.aspx
