Preventive Maintenance

Regular Cleaning: Keep the entry floor clean and free of debris. Dust and grime can cause parts to decay over time, so inspect often.

Side-Entry Vehicles: Foldout and infloor ramps must be free from obstruction to operate smoothly, so keep the passenger side sliding door pan and lower track free of debris. The same goes for cassette areas, where dirt, mud, snow, and ice can collect, possibly causing damage if neglected.

Rear-Entry Vehicles: Be sure to keep the ramp and lowered floor seal and opening free of debris. This is especially important during the cold winter months when snow and ice can find their way into your vehicle.

Reminder: The power door, kneel and ramp functions need to be inspected regularly, as well as tie-downs, restraint belts, and other hardware.

Dealer Scheduled Maintenance

Service Interval: Have your vehicle serviced every six months or 5,000 miles, whichever comes first, by a Mobility Service Excellence (MSE) trained technician familiar with your BraunAbility vehicle’s configuration and specialized equipment.

Exposure to severe weather conditions can make service a more frequent necessity.

Turn to an MSE Certified Technician: Maintenance and lubrication procedures must be performed by authorized service personnel as specified in the downloadable service manual.
