Joyson Safety Systems is recalling 108,047 rear seat belt retractors equipped with a dual mode belt locking mechanism.
Due to a manufacturing issue, the seat belt webbing locking mechanism may not properly restrain the occupant as intended.
If the occupant is not properly restrained in a crash, there is an increased risk of injury.
What to do
Joyson will notify the vehicle manufacturers that purchased the seat belt retractors.
Dealers for those companies will notify owners, and replace the rear retractor assemblies -- as necessary -- free of charge.
Owners may contact Joyson customer service at (586) 726-3800. Joyson's number for this recall is QN3998.
