Holden VF Commodore and WN Caprice seat-belt Recall

Seat-belt fault sees Holden Commodore and Caprice recalled.

Holden VF Commodore and WN Caprice seat-belt recall - The recall will affect thousands of the current model Commodore and Caprice.

In what is sure to be a costly exercise every Holden VF Holden Commodore and WN Caprice will be recalled to fix a potential seat-belt design fault.

The Holden Commodore/Caprice recall affects all models built from last March until the 22nd of May this year, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission recall notice says a condition has been identified where the pre-tensioner wiring harness may make contact with a bolt at the base of the seat belt buckle assembly.

As a result the wiring harness may wear prematurely.

If the defect occurs, the airbag warning light may illuminate on the instrument cluster. In addition, there is a risk that the pre-tensioner may not deploy in the event of an accident, and this poses an accident hazard to the occupants of the vehicle.

The ACCC says owners should contact their nearest Holden Dealer where a free inspection will be carried out of the retention of the pre-tensioner wiring harness.
