What are the defects?

Due to the vehicle design, servicing certain components requires disassembly of the second row left seat belt buckle and centre seat belt anchor, both of which are fastened with the same bolt. During servicing, it is possible the seat belt buckle & anchor may have been re-assembled to the fastening bolt incorrectly. As a result, the seat belt may not operate as intended.

What are the hazards?

In the event of an accident, a seat belt not operating as intended could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupant.

What should consumers do?

Tesla will contact affected owners, requesting to make an appointment with their preferred authorised Tesla dealership to have the component inspected and rectified, free of charge.
