Part Of Right Side Seat Belt Retractor For Third Row Seat Detaches During Accident

Recall Details

The Micro Gas Generator (MGG), a subcomponent part used within the right hand side seat belt retractor for the third row seats, may detach after the seatbelt retractor pretensioner is deployed. This could result in occupant injury. Dealers will replace the third row passenger's side seat belt retractor free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

A portion of the right hand side seat belt retractor for the third row seats of the vehicle may detach during an accident, after the pretensioner in the seat belt deploys to protect vehicle occupants. This part could become a projectile in the cabin, resulting in occupant injury.
