Mercury Recall 99S08: Ford/Seat Lubrication

1999 Mercury Villager

An unlatched seat track could result in an increased risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash.


Vehicle description: Mini vans. The affected vehicles may have a second row right hand side captain chair that has inadequate lubrication of the easy entry and exit latch system. In some cases, the actuator spring in the latch could deform after repeated use, causing the latch to remain in the unlatched position. If this occurs, the seat will slide freely on the seat track and the springs on the track will move the seat to the easy entry position toward the front of the vehicle.
Dealers will replace the seat track for the second row right hand side captain's chair, which includes the easy entry and exit latch mechanism.
