Recall 16V687000

Passenger Front Seat Belt Webbing Detaches From Seat Anchor

Recall Details

The passenger front seat belt webbing may not be securely anchored to the seat anchor plate. Dealers will replace the existing front passenger seat belt anchor bolt or install a bolt if it is missing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The passenger front seat belt webbing may become detached from the anchor that secures it to the seat's anchor plate. This would make the seat belt ineffective at securing an occupant in an accident, and would increase risk of injury.
