Gen 2 Seat and Boot Strut recalls

Postby Ross » Sun Jul 09, 2017 6:45 pm

Recently Mazda have finally made a recall for the push nuts failing on the gen 2 seats. They have also said there are safety issues with the boot gas struts.

You can check here if your car has outstanding recalls but it won't tell you which, you'll have to ring your local Mazda to get that info and get your car booked in for a free repair :)

Apparently with the seats they replace any missing push nuts and they put a new bracket in which stops them from coming off again. Hopefully no more wobbly seats!

Yeah...I got my Boot Strut letter a few days ago. No mention of seats though.

Just a thought, how many of us have the passenger air bag l
Issue ? Surely this should be on there as well .

I've received the boot strut and seat recall letter today. My driver's seat already has a crack in the frame that I've temporarily bodged. Does anyone know if that will be fixed properly free of charge?

Mine also came this morning , I would think so as it's a known fault which was only raised a month ago or so and if the crack is a direct cause from the recall I would think you have a good argument to get it sorted .

OK, thanks. I'll try calling my local dealer - wasn't sure if the recall would only cover the preventative work for free, but I'll see what they say.
