The seat belt may lock and fail to retract or extend

Ford Motor Company is recalling 77,574 model year 2018-2020 Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators.

The seat belt pretensioner in the driver and/or front passenger seat may inadvertently deploy and lock the seat belt, which will not allow the belt to retract or extend.

Seat belts that fail to retract or extend may not restrain an occupant as intended, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect and replace the seat belt retractors as necessary. Additionally, they will install an HVAC drain tube elbow if it is missing. Repairs will be performed free of charge.

Interim owner notification letters explaining the safety risk are expected to be mailed March 4, 2024. A second notice will be sent once remedy parts become available, anticipated second half of 2024.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 24S06.
