2021 Ford F-150 Recalled Over Safety Issue With Front Seatbelt Webbing

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2021 Ford F-150 SuperCab trucks due to incorrectly routed front seatbelt webbing.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the front outboard seatbelt assemblies may have seatbelt webbing routed only through the rubber trim sleeve, and not properly routed through the anchor.

The hazards: an improperly assembled seatbelt may not adequately restrain an occupant in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

Components: front outboard seatbelt assembly.

Affected vehicles: select 2021 Ford F-150 SuperCab models produced at the Ford Dearborn Truck Plant between January 2nd, 2021 – May 27th, 2021, and at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant from January 4th, 2021 – April 22nd, 2021.

Number of vehicles affected: 16,430 vehicles.

The fix: dealers will replace the defective seatbelt retractor and pre-tensioner.

Owners should: perform an inspection of the front seatbelt. If the passenger-side seatbelt fails inspection, owners should not use the passenger seat until the repair is performed. If the driver-side seatbelt fails inspection, owners should not drive their vehicle until the repair is performed. Dealers will inspect the front seatbelts and, if the webbing is misrouted, will replace the seatbelt retractor and pre-tensioner. Owner communications will begin on September 27th, 2021. The Ford reference number for this recall is 21C20.
