Head Restraint Weld Might Not Hold it to the Seat Frame

The head restraint guide that keeps it attached to the seat frame may not have been properly welded in 169 VW vehicles.

Recalled are 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf, Golf R, Audi A3 Sedan and RS3 vehicles that need the rear seat frames replaced.

This is the second welding-related recall this year. They also recalled the Tiguan’s shock absorbers back in May.

What in the weld is going on at these factories?

In the last couple months a petition was handed to safety regulators because of weld concerns in the Jeep Wrangler, Subaru had to recall the brand new Ascent for missing welds, and even Maserati’s sub-frames are breaking because of welding mistakes.
