Ford recalls Transit Connect vehicles for improper torqueing of upper seat belt bolts

Ford Motor Company

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain model year 2014 Ford Transit Connect vehicles manufactured November 6, 2013, to September 20, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the upper seat belt bolts may have been improperly torqued, allowing them to loosen over time.

If the seat belt anchorage fasteners loosen over time, there is an increased risk of personal injury in the event of a crash.

16,091 vehicles are affected by the recall.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the original seatbelt fasteners with properly torqued fasteners, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 23, 2015.
