Porsche Recall A506: Porsche/FMVSS 208/Seat Belt Retractor

2005 Porsche Cayenne

When involved in a crash, the child restraints may not be properly secured increasing the risk of injury or death to the seat occupant.

Seat Belts

Certain passenger cars fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 208, "occupant crash protection." All three rear seat positions and the front passenger position are equipped with seat belt retractors that have a locking feature which converts the retractor from an emergency locking retractor (ELR) mode to an automatic locking retractor (ALR) mode for the purposes of child restraint installation. The belt may deactivate the ALR mode with certain child restraints.
Dealers will permanently install a clip in either of the affected rear outboard seat belts and provide an owner's manual insert. The clips will prevent unwarranted conversion from ALR to ELR mode with child seat installation. The recall began May 17, 2005. Owners should contact Porsche at 1-800-545-8039.
