Recall Details
On certain vehicles, the passenger frontal airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment. Increased pressure may cause the inflator to rupture, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury. This could also damage the airbag module, which could prevent proper deployment. Failure of the passenger airbag to fully deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. Correction: Dealers will replace the passenger side frontal airbag inflator with a new, non-ammonium-nitrate-based inflator. Note: This campaign supersedes 2015-236, which replaced defective inflators with new inflators (“like-for-like”) as a temporary remedy while evaluating a permanent remedy. Vehicles repaired under 2015-236 and un-repaired vehicles covered by 2015-236 will now receive the permanent remedy airbag inflator type.
