NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V033
Manufacturer Bentley Motors, Inc.
Components SEAT BELTS
Potential Number of Units Affected 1,059

 

Rear Seat Belt Buckle May Detach/FMVSS 210

In the event of a crash, if the rear seat belt buckle detaches, the seat occupant would have an increased risk of injury.

 

Summary

Bentley Motors, Inc. (Bentley) is recalling certain 2012-2018 Bentley Mulsanne vehicles. In the event of a crash, the rear seat belt anchor may detach from the vehicle. As such, these vehicles fail to comply to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 210, "Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages."

 

Remedy

Bentley will notify owners, and dealers will improve the strength of the rear seat belt mounting by adding an additional reinforcement panel to the body structure, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2019. Owners may contact Bentley Customer Service at 1-800-777-6923. Bentley's number for this recall is RE 19/01.

 

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.

 To: Sales, Marketing, Parts and Service
Subject: RECALL CAMPAIGN – Bentley Mulsanne Rear Seat Belt Anchorage Plate (RE19/01)

RECALL CAMPAIGN – Bentley Mulsanne Rear Seat Belt Anchorage Plate (RE19/01)

This Bulletin is to initiate a recall campaign to fit an additional reinforcement plate to the body structure to improve the strength of the rear seat belt mounting on 5-seat Mulsanne vehicles built between January 2012 and September 2018.

This Bulletin will provide you with all of the information to explain why this recall is being initiated, the actions you are required to take and provide you with the appropriate administrative details.

Bentley has identified that the seat belt anchorages may not fulfill the load requirements if the rear center seat is occupied at the same time as an outer seat.  Therefore, in the event of an impact accident, there is a risk that the rear seat belt buckle may become detached from the body structure.  This is because the mounting points of the seat belt buckles used had been manufactured using an incorrect grade of material by the supplier.

We have attached the list of VIN’s that are impacted by this Recall Campaign. We will be sending a Retailer specific list of responsibility based upon our service records.  Please inform the writer of any changes.

Owners of affected cars will be notified in writing in early February

Attached is the Bentley Technical Product Information (TPI) document, which details the procedure which must be followed exactly. The tools necessary to carry out the repair will be shipped directly to you along with an initial supply of parts.

It is not necessary to contact us for authorization.  We will take our records from your warranty claim which must be generated and submitted immediately upon completion of the work.  You are reminded that claims for recalls cannot contain any other warranty repairs.  The warranty code and repair time are quoted within the TPI.

It is to our mutual advantage that this recall campaign goes as smoothly as possible.  Should you have any questions or queries concerning this recall, please contact your Area Service Manager or myself.

 

Sincerely,

 

Stephen Worrall

Director, Aftersales
