What's the Problem?
This recall affects all Honda Genuine Accessory Tonneau Covers, part number 08Z07-T6Z-100F, sold for installation on 2017-2020 Ridgeline trucks, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
If the recalled tonneau covers are not properly secured in the open or closed position, wind resistance may cause the cover to flip and buckle. If this occurs, the hinges between the center and rear panel may deform, possibly allowing the rear panel to separate from the vehicle.
"A separated panel may become a road hazard, increasing the risk of crash or injury," NHTSA said.
Honda is notifying owners and dealers will install tethers onto any Honda Genuine Accessory Tonneau Cover to prevent panel separation and apply warning labels, free of charge.
This recall began on October 26, 2020.
