General Motors is recalling 2,568 model year 2014-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500s, model year 2015-2016 Chevrolet Tahoes, and model year 2014-2015 GMC Sierra 1500s that may have received an incorrect replacement tensioner cable assembly as part of a previous recall remedy or a subsequent repair.
The flexible steel cable connecting the driver's seat belt to the outboard side of the seat may be repeatedly bent over the seat side shield as the driver enters and exits the vehicle, causing the cable to fatigue and separate.
A broken pretensioner cable reduces the effectiveness of the driver's seat belt, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver seat belt lap pretensioner free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 24, 2021.
Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020, and GMC customer service at (800) 462-8782. GM's number for this recall is N212330040.
