GM Holden Ltd—EM Malibu
What are the defects?
A pivot pin inside the twin buckle assembly for the right-hand rear and rear centre seatbelts may not have been assembled correctly and may translate sideways.
What are the hazards?
Should the pivot pin translate sufficiently, the right-hand rear or rear centre seatbelt buckles may detach from their anchor plate. This may render the affected seatbelt unable to restrain an occupant, posing an increased risk of injury during a crash event.
What should consumers do?
Holden will write to all affected customers to notify them of required action.
All Holden dealers nationally.
