Recall 96V142000
Body, Interior & Misc., September 25, 1996
Original Recall from the NHTSA

Model Year(s): 1991

Mfr's Report Date:
September 25, 1996

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 96V142000

NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: SEAT BELTS:REAR

Potential Number of Units Affected: 97351

Summary: THESE VEHICLES EXHIBIT A CONDITION IN WHICH A REAR SEAT BELT BUCKLE RELEASE BUTTON CAN STICK IN THE UNLATCHED (DOWN) POSITION UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS BECAUSE THE BUCKLE ASSEMBLY CAN MOVE INSIDE THE SEAT BELT COVER. IF THE COVER MOVES FAR ENOUGH, IT CAN CREATE AN INTERFERENCE CONDITION WITH THE LATCH RELEASE BUTTON. WHEN IT DOES, THE SEAT BELT BUCKLE CANNOT BE LATCHED.

Consequence: THE REAR BELTS MAY NOT HOLD AN OCCUPANT IN THE EVENT OF A VEHICLE ACCIDENT INCREASING THE RISK OF PESONAL INJURY.

Remedy: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE THREE REAR-SEAT BELT BUCKLES (ONE ASSEMBLY) WITH A NEW, REVISED DESIGN.

Notes: SYSTEM: INTERIOR; SEAT BELTS; REAR. VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: MULTI-PURPOSE PASSENGER VEHICLES. OWNER NOTIFICATION: OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN IN AUGUST 1996. NOTE: OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-222-1020, GMC AT 1-800-462-8782, OR OLDSMOBILE AT 1-800-442-6537.
