American Honda Motor Co. is recalling all Honda Genuine Accessory Tonneau Covers, part number 08Z07-T6Z-100F, sold for installation on 2017-2020 Ridgeline trucks.
If the tonneau cover is 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, posing the risk of crash or injury.
What to do
Honda will notify all registered owners of 2017-2020 Honda Ridgelines, and dealers will install tethers onto any Honda Genuine Accessory Tonneau Cover to prevent panel separation and apply warning labels free of charge.
In addition, an updated accessory user's information manual will be provided.
The recall is expected to begin October 26, 2020.
Owners may contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138. Honda's number for this recall is F8M.
