Manufacturer Recall No. 00S36
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID 00V338001

Remedy Dealers will inspect the seat belt buckle assembly attachment. Some belt buckle assemblies may require replacement. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on Nov. 20, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
Summary On certain minivans, the plastic trim cover around the base of the front seat safety belt buckle may become trapped between the shoulder of the restraint anchorage bolt and the seat pedestal. This could eventually allow the seat belt buckle bolt to loosen and, in the event of a crash, the occupant seated in that location may not be adequately restrained, increasing the risk of personal injury.
