Components SEAT BELTS

Potential Number of Units Affected 61



Braun Ambulances is recalling certain 2019 and 2021 Crestline CCL150 Type III E-Series and 2019-2020 Crestline CCL150 Type I F-Series and CCL150 Type III G-Series ambulances. Two of the eight fastening points of the seat belt system installed in the ambulance patient compartment side-facing CPR seating position on the street-side of the vehicle may be defective. Two of the threaded inserts used for the rearward retractor and shoulder belt D-ring are installed too close to a mounting flange resulting in improper crimping of the threaded insert.



Braun will notify owners and dealers will inspect both seat belt anchor points and if no defect exists, no further action will be required. If the inspection shows the defect exists on one or both seat belt anchor points, your dealer will replace the defective insert(s) with nut plate(s) during the inspection, free of charge. The recall began on March 1, 2021. Owners may contact Braun Ambulances customer service at 1-877-344-9990.



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.



NHTSA Recall Number: 21V003

Date: February 1, 2021


Dear #dealername#,

Braun Industries has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety may exist in certain 6-point seatbelt anchor bolts for the CPR seat seatbelt in certain model year 2019 through 2021 Crestline CCL150 Ambulances.


The affected system components are the upper right shoulder seat belt d-ring anchor point and the lower right seat belt retractor anchor point of the side facing seated position on the street side of the vehicle (CPR seat). During our manufacturing and quality control process, we became aware of the potential of one or both seat belt anchor points being improperly seated due to improper crimping of the threaded insert.  Improperly crimped seat belt anchors may result in partial or complete loss of effectiveness of the seat belt harness which may increase the chance of injury to the occupant, in that seated position, in the event of a crash.


You are receiving this notice because the following vehicle are affected by this recall:

Dealer Customer Truck Number VIN
#name# #name# #number# #VIN#
#name# # name# #number# #VIN#
#name# #name# #number# #VIN#


It is a violation of Federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle or any new or used item of motor vehicle equipment (including a tire) covered by this notification under a sale or lease until the defect is remedied.


The likelihood of experiencing this loss in functionality is unlikely, however we will require all vehicles to be returned to the dealer for an inspection and if required a retrofit to ensure that no issues exist.


Inspection measuring tools, parts, and instruction will be available March 8, 2021. Work instruction, inspection tool, and replacement fasteners will be sent to the Crestline Dealers performing the inspection. Crestline Dealers will inspect affected vehicles with the supplied inspection tool, according to the FMD-016 Inspection & Modifications of CPR Seatbelt Anchor Points on CCL-150 Units. Vehicles that require modification will have the nutsert(s) replaced by the supplied threaded backing plate(s), per the process specified in FMD-016, to remedy the defect. Vehicles that do not require modification are to have the seating system reassembled. Customers on file will be directed to take their ambulance/s to their Dealer to have this action performed.


Phone: 877-344-9990   6:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. EDT  Email: braunservice@braunambulances.com


We apologize in advance for the inconvenience this issue may cause your organization. We will make every effort to make this as simple as possible on both our Dealers and our Customers.
