Ford Recall Affects More Than 117,000 F-150, F-250, and F-350 Trucks
The left rear seat occupant may not be adequately restrained in the event of a crash
Ford Motor Company is recalling more than 117,000 model year 2015-2017 F-150, and model year 2017 F-250 and F-350 trucks equipped with a crew cab.
What's the problem?
The left rear inflatable seat belt buckle assembly may be inadequately attached to its mounting bracket. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 210, "Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages."
If the left rear inflatable seat belt buckle separates from it's mounting bracket, the seat occupant may not be adequately restrained, increasing their risk of injury during a crash.
What happens next?
Ford will notify owners of the recalled trucks beginning in mid-October 2017. Dealers will then inspect the seat belt assembly, replacing the attaching rivet as necessary, free of charge.
