NHTSA Campaign Number: 20V316000 Manufacturer Braun Ambulances Components SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC, SUSPENSION Potential Number of Units Affected 10

Summary Braun Ambulances (Braun) is recalling certain 2019 Chief XL Type I and Liberty ambulances built on Ram 4500 or 5500 chassis equipped with Compressible Liquid Adaptive Suspension Systems (C.L.A.S.S.), part numbers DS135RS3A, DS135RS3AF, DS135RS3-DM. The rear brake caliper flexible line may have been routed so that it contacts a suspension component, possibly causing excessive wear and a loss of rear brakes. The affected system component is the rear brake caliper flexible line which may be causing brake caliper to wear due to contact suspension components.

Remedy Braun will notify owners and dealers will replace the rear brake caliper flexible lines and hardware, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2020. Owners may contact Braun at 1-877-344-9990.
