RECARO Automotive Ltd—RECARO Pole Position SPG (FIA) and RECARO Furious SPG (FIA) Racing Seats

Identifying features

Part numbers starting with 070.98.XXX (pole position) and 070.78.XXX (furious).
Common homologation number CS.997.00 on the label on the side of the backrests.

What are the defects?

During internal crash tests of the seat systems it was found that under these specific test set-ups cracks can occur in the seat shell in the area of the front fixation to the steel adapter connecting the seat with the vehicle floor.

What are the hazards?

The cracks can possibly lead to a detachment of the shell from the adapter. In the case of an accident this can possibly lead to an increased rearward movement of the seats and as a consequence to a possible higher injury risk for the driver or loss of control over the vehicle.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should refrain from using the products, and contact RECARO on +49 (0) 202-2515-620 for instructions.
