Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 1,676 model year 2017 Audi A5 Cabriolets and S5 Cabriolets.
A component within the front, rear, and rear center seat belt retractor pretensioners may detach after the seat belt retractor pretensioner is deployed in the event of a crash.
Although, the seat belt will operate as intended in the event of a crash, the pretensioner component may be a projectile within the vehicle cabin, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Audi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the safety belt retractors/pretensioners, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May 2017.
Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's number for the recall is 69O8.
