Tesla issues recall for Model Y second row seat belt retractor bolts [Update]

Tesla has issued another recall today for the Model Y, this time over concerns about the second row seat belt retractor bolts.

According to an email sent to impacted owners and shared with Drive Tesla, the recall applies to certain vehicles built between November 2019 and March 2021. On some of these vehicles the second row seat belt retractor bolts might not have been secured to the correct specification.

UPDATE: This recall has now been officially posted by the NHTSA. It impacts just 2,166 2019-2021 Model Y vehicles.

The email explains that in the rare situation where this is the case, the seat belt system may not work as designed during a crash.

Tesla says they are not aware of any injuries or crashes as a result of the issue.

If you haven’t already received an email from Tesla, you can use their VIN recall search tool to see if your car falls under this notice.

This is the second recall issued today by Tesla. Earlier this morning owners were contacted about a possible issue with the brake caliper bolts on certain Model 3 and Model Y vehicles.

Tesla has also issued a service bulletin this week to preemptively address the common squeaky upper control arm issue on some Model 3 vehicles.
