    2007 - 2008 Honda Fit LATCH Service Bulletin

    I did a quick search and didn't see if this had been mentioned here, the service bulletin is dated May of 2008, but I just stumbled upon it when looking up a TSB for another issue with this car, anyway I thought it'd be helpful to have here if anyone doesn't know.

    Applies To:
    2007 Fit - From VIN JHMGD3...75000026 thru JHMGD3...75068661
    2008 Fit - From VIN JHMGD3...85000003 thru JHMGD3...88023517

    Child Seat May Not Attach to Left Rear Seat Anchor

    SYMPTOM

    It's difficult to install a LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children)-compatible child seat onto the outer lower anchor of the left rear seat.

    PROBABLE CAUSE

    The space between the outer lower anchor and the seat-back frame above it is too narrow.

    CORRECTIVE ACTION

    Replace the left rear seat-back frame.

    PARTS INFORMATION
    Left Rear Seat-Back Frame:P/N 82526-SLN-A01, H/C 8328551

    WARRANTY CLAIM INFORMATION
    NOTE : Any affected vehicle, in or out of warranty, is eligible for free left rear seat-back frame replacement.

    Re: 2007 - 2008 Honda Fit LATCH Service Bulletin

    My brother had this done on his Fit. It's not a safety problem to use LATCH if it hasn't been corrected. It just might be difficult to get the LATCH hook on to that anchor.
