Cessna: 170B, 172-172E, 180’s, 182-182D, 185’s: Worn Flap Handle Latch; ATA 2750

Cessna: 170B, 172-172E, 180’s, 182-182D, 185’s: Worn Flap Handle Latch; ATA 2750

(The following article is published as received from the Wichita Aircraft Certification Office: ACE-118W.)

“The FAA has received reports of problems associated with a tubular spacer found within Cessna flap handle latch mechanisms (P/N 0510166-0 through –5). Specific models include 172 through the 172E (1964), all 180’s, 182 through 182D (1961), and all 185’s. The spacer’s relative position within the handle can be seen in the attached drawing. It is transfixed by a rivet having washers at each end. Continued use of this latch mechanism causes wear on the handle. Should this occur, the spacer can work itself sufficiently out of the handle to jam the latching mechanism. Wear may be evidenced by paint or surface scrape-type marks found just below the washers on either side of the flap handle. It is recommended this latch joint be inspected for wear during every 100 hours or annual inspection.”
