#10243: Product Safety - Second Row Safety Belt Interference When Seat Back Returned to Upright Position - (Aug 16, 2010)


Subject: 10243 - Second Row Safety Belt Interference When Seat Back Returned to Upright Position


Models: 2009-2010 Buick Enclave

2009-2010 Chevrolet Traverse

2009-2010 GMC Acadia

2009-2010 Saturn OUTLOOK




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Condition
General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2009-2010 model year Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn OUTLOOK vehicles. These vehicles may have a condition where the second row seat side trim shield restricts the upward rotation of the safety belt buckle when the seat back is returned to a seating position after being folded flat. If the buckle contacts the seat frame, additional effort is required to return the seat to a seating position. If sufficient force is applied, the buckle cover could be pushed down the strap, exposing and partially depressing the red release button. As a result, the release button will not travel as much as designed when depressed and will appear to be jammed. The buckle cover may have visible damage which may only be cosmetic, but in some cases, the buckle may not latch/unlatch, or may appear to latch when the latch mechanism is not fully engaged. As a result, the safety belt may not restrain the occupant as intended during a crash, which could result in injury to the occupant.

Correction
Dealers/retailers are to modify the second row seat side trim shields. If a safety belt buckle is damaged, dealers are to replace it.

Got my notice on Saturday. Looks like I'll be able to get this done at the Saturn dealer before they close on Oct. 31st. :thumb:
