Issue

On certain trucks equipped with a right-hand (passenger-side) Bostrom air-ride seat, the seat bracket intermediate connection point may interfere with the seatbelt retractor mechanism. This could cause the retractor cover to crack, allowing the retractor spring to become loose and inoperable. Failure of the seatbelt to restrain the seat occupant as intended would increase the risk of personal injury during a crash. Correction: Dealers will replace the seat bracket with an updated version, and install a new passenger side seatbelt retractor mechanism.
