Holden VF Commodores recalled for seatbelt issue

NEARLY all new Holden VF Commodores sold since March last year are being recalled.

Holden has identified an issue where the pretensioner wiring harness may make contact with a bolt at the base of the seat belt buckle assembly. As a result the wiring harness may wear prematurely.

If the defect occurs, the airbag warning light may illuminate on the instrument cluster. In addition, there is a risk that the pretensioner may not deploy in the event of an accident.

Holden is expected to recall more than 40,000 vehicles.

The recall applies to the VF Commodore and WN Caprice, with the VIN range: 6G1FL5EP6EL900097 - 6G1NN5E48EL987612. 

The vehicles in question were built between March 8 last year and May 22 this year. 

Customers should contact their nearest Holden Dealer. Dealers will inspect and correct the retention of the pretensioner wiring harness to the seat base frame. 

It's the second major recall this week, with Hyundai experiencing issues with the driver's airbag on ix35s.
