Recall 18V268000

Front Passenger Air Bag Inflator Potentially Installed Improperly During Replacement

Recall Details

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may have been incorrectly installed during replacement for a previous safety recall action. Dealers will inspect the installation and if necessary replace the passenger frontal air bag module free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The front passenger air bag inflator was replaced during a previous safety recall service visit. During this replacement, the inflator may have been installed incorrectly. If installed incorrectly, the air bag will not deploy properly in a crash, resulting in increased risk of injury.
