What's the Problem?
This recall affects Safety Belt Solutions seat belts with part number 202441-1/MFG 35FB9, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
"The seat belt tongues may not have been heat-treated correctly during manufacturing," NHTSA said. "Incorrectly heat-treated seat belt tongues may not properly restrain an occupant in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury."
This problem causes the recalled seat belts to fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."
Safety Belt Solutions is notifying the manufacturer that purchased the equipment, and Safety Belt Solutions will test the seat belts, and replace them as necessary, free of charge.
This recall began in March 2021.
