Mazda Miata MX-5 recalls

 

For Models: Mazda Miata MX-5

Body, Interior & Misc., April 28, 2006

RepairPal Expert Overview:

If the driver's airbag were to deploy in an extremely low ambient temperature, the bolt attaching the horn contact assembly to the steering wheel hub may fail. Should this occur, the horn assembly may separate and could injure the driver. Dealers will replace the driver's front airbag to correct this concern. The Mazda recall number is 3906C.

For Models: Mazda MPV, Mazda Mazda6, Mazda Miata MX-5

Electrical & Lights, July 14, 2003

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The heat generated by a fog light bulb can cause the socket holder to be pushed rearward in the light casing. This, in combination with the normal vibration during vehicle operation, can cause the bulb holder to separate from the light casing. Should this occur, the bulb socket and harness can drop inside the bumper and possibly result in the bumper being burned by the hot bulb. Dealers will install a spring to prevent the socket holder from separating from the lamp case. The Mazda recall number is 1103F.
