M2/M3 BFV: TROUBLESHOOTING - OD1610 - LESSON 1/TASK 2
After completing PMCS and listing all faults that the operator or crew
cannot fix, the DA Form 2404 is turned over to the maintenance supervisor.
The maintenance supervisor will have a mechanic check and repair the faults,
and then show all action taken for each fault.
e. Using DA Form 2404 for Follow-on Actions to Operator/Crew PMCS (see
figure 4 on the following page).
(1) Column c - Corrective Action.
All repair parts replaced or
needed are listed in column c. If parts must be ordered, list the national
stock number (NSN) or part number, TM figure, and item number. If more room

For parts and
components that go to repairable exchange, print "DA Form 2402."
(2) Column e - Initial When Corrected.
The mechanic initials any
dash or diagonal faults that have been fixed.
The mechanic also initials

The mechanic then gives the DA Form

The maintenance supervisor will
examine the faults corrected, and those still not repaired, to decide what
other action is needed. For quality control, the supervisor or a designated
representative will check all corrected status symbol X faults.
inspector will then initial in column e, in place of the mechanic.
The CO's designated representative will look at unfixed faults to decide
which one(s) can be delayed. Faults that do not affect the operation of the
equipment and/or the operator's safety can be deferred. Normally, fixing a
fault is deferred because:
Support is backed up and cannot get to the equipment right away.
