All the 89 buses affected were sold in Australia between the 30th of June 2013 and the 15th of August 2017.

The models affected include:

  • Delta 280E5 SROH
  • Metro 280E5 LROH
  • Metro 280E5 SROH

The recall notice advising that on the affected vehicles the rear brake calipers may have been incorrectly fitted to the wrong side of the axle (left caliper on the right hand side and right caliper on the left hand side).

What are the hazards?

The caliper slide may impact the suspension arm before the brake pads are completely worn out and before the pad sensor triggers a dash warning light, which may increase the risk of an accident and/or occupant injury.

What should affected owners do?

All affected owners should take their vehicle to their nearest authorised IVECO dealership where the rear brake calipers will be inspected and rectified.

For further information, please contact IVECO Trucks Australia on 1800 4 IVECO (48326).
