Push The Entrance Door Button and Hear air, door doesn't work.
I wish I could explain this one. All I can say is I think it has something to do with the Door Air Manifold.
I think something to do with the O-Rings, because it seems to happen more in cold weather. Sometimes it is possible
for a mechanic to disconnect one of the air lines, the squirt some lubricant in there, and that patches it up for awhile.
I am still searching for a good answer to this, because it sure is annoying.
The best an operator could do on the road is Dump the air thru the entry door over rule valve, pull the door closed,
and lock the door with the sliding manual lock.
If you're lucky. Usually the door frame looks like this...
and then it won't lock anyway. The G45 entry doors are just junk, and there isn't much most service islands can
do about it. A garage should be able to repair most of the issues, like the frame damage.
Left Hand (driver side) front service door won't stay closed.
This is very common and usually very simple to overcome by anyone.
Don't go sticking baggage claim envelopers or duct tape all over the bus.
They may not be the best buses in the world, but they do look good.
Instead, reach underneath the door, grab the same handle you opened the door with.
Now, when you open that service door, you pull the handle toward you. What you need to do to close it properly
is, push the door closed and hold it with one hand.
With your other hand, reach underneath and push the release handle back. This should close the latches and hold
the door shut. This has worked for me most of the time. It's not 100%, but well worth the try. Let us know
if this works for you.
