Tesla recalling Model S and Model X for seat belt and camera issues in China

Tesla has had to recall 271 Model S and Model X in China over an issue to do with seat belts.

Two hundred and thirty-three Model S and Model X that rolled off the production lines between the 5th of February and the 16th of May, 2023, require their seat belts to be reinstalled. The remaining 37 were produced between the 17th of January and the 11th of July, 2023.

The front seat belt parts in the first set of vehicles were probably not correctly connected to the pretensioner anchors during production or after-sale service. This creates a safety risk during a crash, as the belts may not restrain passengers as expected.

Tesla will fix the problem by inspecting the front seat belts on the affected vehicles at no cost to the owners, even if a replacement is required.

The second set of vehicles has issues with the front camera positioning. They failed to meet pitch angle design specifications. As a result, they could affect the active safety features and other driver alerts, a severe safety risk.

Tesla plans to check the front camera pitch angle on the affected units and fix any errors.

The EV maker recently fixed similar problems on the Model S, Model X, and Model Y in the US. Another seat belt recall in the US affected about 16,000 Model S and Model X.
