Potential Number of Units Affected: 60
Summary: Braun is recalling certain model year 2012 Entervan vehicles equipped with aftermarket seat covers, part numbers E51815K-D90-11 and E51817K-11, manufactured from February 28, 2012, through September 21, 2012. The seat covers may have been incorrectly installed with the driver seat cover on the passenger seat and vice versa and will have an 'SRS AIRBAG' label located on the inboard seat bolster.
Consequence: The seat covers were built with special stitching on one side to permit side airbag deployment from the seat bolster. If the seat covers are installed on the incorrect seats, the seat cover will not allow side airbag deployment during a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury to the vehicle occupants.
Remedy: Braun will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and correct the installation of the seat covers as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during October 2012. Owners may contact Braun customer service center at 1-800-488-0359.
