This 23V358000 recall from the NHTSA was published by the safety ratings agency on 18/05/2023.
It concerns parts manufactured by Ford Motor Company that are classed as: SEAT BELTS:CRITICAL FASTENERS.
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2021-2023 Bronco vehicles built with the 5-Door body style. The first-row seat belt latch plates may be difficult to access from their stowed position. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
Difficulty accessing the seat belt latches may result in occupants not wearing their seat belts, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
Dealers will add a sliding clip latch stop to the driver and front passenger seat belts, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed June 30, 2023. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 23C16.
