A software update won’t be able to fix Tesla’s most recent recall.

Over 24,000 Model 3 vehicles are subject to a safety recall from Tesla since this particular problem cannot be resolved by a software update. The center seat belt anchor and rear-left seat belt buckle on the impacted vehicles may not be securely latched (via Electrek). All model years (2017-2022) are affected, however the problem wasn’t created at the factory; rather, it was brought on by a previous service visit during which the seat belt anchor was taken out for another repair.

On October 21st, Tesla reported a safety recall to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). According to the complaint, after earlier repairs that required its disassembly and reassembly, Tesla service personnel discovered that the second-row center seat belt anchors weren’t being attached properly. One bolt connects the two parts.

After some service professionals discovered the loose components in August, an internal inquiry got under way. At US service locations, 105 instances of faulty seat belt reassembly were discovered. The precise service centers accountable for the error are not made known. Tesla has not identified any accidents or injuries resulting from this problem.

Owners who are subject to the recall will get email and mail notifications by December 20th. Tesla writes in the email that the situation is currently unaffected and that it is preparing “pop-up service events” where customers can have the problem repaired. The solution seems to be very straightforward: Tesla will examine the buckle and anchor to ensure that they are securely fastened.
