Ford Motor Company is recalling 42,493 model year 2021-2022 Transit and model year 2021 Transit Connect vehicles.
The front passenger seat belt automatic locking retractor (ALR) may deactivate early, which can prevent the child restraint system from securing properly.
An unsecured child restraint system can increase the risk of injury in a crash.
What to do
Dealers will inspect the front passenger seat belt assembly, and replace the assembly -- as necessary -- free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed September 13, 2021.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 21C18.
