Summary:
The seat belt retractor may have a pin shaft that is incorrectly formed. In some circumstances, the switching mechanism could become nonfunctional, preventing the seat belt webbing from being extracted from the retractor. If the mechanism malfunctions and does not allow the webbing to be extracted, the lap and shoulder belt could not be worn by a vehicle occupant. Also, the operator may be unable to properly install a child seat in that seating position.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the lap and shoulder belt assemblies. Assemblies with date codes of 200 through 223 are suspect and will be replaced. Owner notification began Oct. 19, 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
