Check that the module lifting beam is in correct configuration for opening and
that all the arms are locked.
Check that the deck units align with the machined slot on the bridge panels.
♦ Refold ramp module and check for correct position of deck spacers.
Report defect to maintenance.
♦ Refold ramp module and check for correct thickness of deck spacers.
Replace as required.
Support the partially opened ramp module and check dampers on non-
opening side for free play. The damper with no free play will be the defective
