Overhead Seat Belt Stow Clip Fractures Preventing Use Of Third Row and Second Row Center Belts

Recall Details

Dealers will replace the third row and if necessary second row center overhead seat belt stow bezels free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The center overhead seat belt stow clip may fracture, preventing use of the seat belt in the third row and second row center passenger seats. This would increase injury of occupants in a crash if they are not properly restrained.
