SERVICE UPDATE
FROM
NEW YORK BUS SALES, LLC
***********************
Complaint: Units experience what appears to be an alternator failure (either high or low voltage).Alternators are Leece-Neville 175amp. Most issues have been with the A3FE units.

Cause: The internal regulator on the alternator is failing from an overheat situation.

Correction: Blue Bird offers the attached “retro – fit” kit which replaces the internal regulator with an external regulator and they are asking to have it mounted behind the right wiper door – this will assure sufficient cooling.

These Parts Will Be Provided Under Warranty

THIS WILL BE A STANDARD PRODUCTION FEATURE ON A3FE STARTING IN MAY 2005
