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.
