What are the defects?

After operating the power seats reclining lever, the lever may stick in the operating position, allowing continuous current flow to the reclining motor.

If the defect occurs, this may result in the motor, seat cushion and surrounding parts melting or in the worst case burning.

What should consumers do?

As a precaution prior to rectification, consumers should ensure the lever returns to the centre position after use and whenever exiting the vehicle.
