Chronology :

All info is provided from Freedman Seating recall notice —-

During an FMVSS 207/210 test in the company’s test lab on 1/26/2024, the 2place GO-ES Spacer Saver Foldaway Seat was unable to sustain the test load on the shoulder belts. Seat back adjusted position forward under load when the seat back was in fully reclined position. Investigation of the production processes for these seats on 1/29/2024 determined the welding fixtures for the recliner mechanism were not being used properly. An experienced welder who had been welding this component left the company on December 8, 2023. Welder who took over this process was not effectively trained in the use of the welding fixtures and neglected to use the additional fixture that was needed to accurately locate the recliner mechanism relative to the seat back stop.
