NHTSA Campaign ID: 02V169000
Component: SEAT BELTS:FRONT:WEBBING
Manufacturer: FORD MOTOR COMPANY
Manufacture Dates: 03/14/2001 - 04/24/2002
Potential Units Affected: 15355
Defect Description:

OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT FORD AT 1-866-436-7332.
