Summary
THE PASSENGER AIR BAG WAS IMPROPERLY INSTALLED. THE RETAINER TABS USED TO SECURE THE LOWER MODULE TO THE UPPER HOUSING WERE DRILLED INCORRECTLY.
Consequence
IF THE RETAINER TABS WERE DRILLED INCORRECTLY, THE TABS WILL NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT STRENGTH ALLOWING THE MODULE TO SEPARATE FROM THE HOUSING DURING AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT. THE AIR BAG WOULD NOT INFLATE PROPERLY AND A PASSENGER WOULD LOSE THE BENEFITS OF A PROPER AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT DURING A VEHICLE ACCIDENT.
Remedy
DEALERS WILL REPAIR THE AIR BAG MODULE ASSEMBLY BY ADDING REINFORMCEMENT BRACKETS.
