Problem Description

Faulty crimping of the micro-gas generator for the seat belt tensioner means that, in the event of deployment of the seat belt tensioner, parts of the gas generator could detach causing injuries to the occupants of the car.

The recall concerns vehicles produced between May 2016 and January 2017.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, the motor industry standards body Motor Codes offers a Vehicle Safety Recall search. By using this, any recalls that are active for your car can be identified. To use this facility, you’ll need the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for your car – this is a long code number that appears on the chassis plate of your car or – on most UK-registered cars – in the bottom-left corner of your windscreen.

If it’s confirmed there’s an active recall for your car, you should make contact with a Fiat dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer. Usually that’ll be your nearest franchised dealership, or ‘main dealer’ as they’re sometimes known.
