Rear Seat Belt May be Unable to be Latched

If the rear seat passengers cannot fasten their seat belts, they have an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

 

Summary

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2016-2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 and GLC300 4Matic, 2018 GLC350e and GLC63 AMG 4Matic and 2017-2018 GLC43 AMG 4Matic vehicles. The seat belt latch plates (the parts that insert into the buckles) for the outboard rear seats may retract into the interior paneling, preventing the occupants from being able to use the seat belts.

 

Remedy

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will install felt strips between the C-pillar and rear side paneling, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 31, 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
