Recall defect descripton: It is possible that the driver’s and passenger’s front powered seats may not be fitted with the front stop lug. The lug restricts the movement of the seats and if not fitted, it is possible to position the seats too far forward or backwards. This could increase the chances of injury should the vehicle be involved in an accident.

Volvo Recall action: Recall all affected vehicles to inspect for fitment of the lugs and if found to be missing, fit new lugs.
