EU rapid alert system

  • Risk level: 1

  • Rapex alert: A12/1207/14

  • Date of the problem: 08/08/2014

The frontal passenger-side inflators could create excessive internal pressure during air bag deployment after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity environments. In a worst case scenario, the inflator may rupture, possibly causing injury. Even if the inflator does not rupture, due to the specific design of the frontal passenger-side airbag module with its integrated inflator, excessive internal pressure of the inflator could potentially result in an increased risk of airbag-induced injuries in a deployment event.

  • Risk level: Injury

  • Rapex alert: A12/00852/20

  • Date of the problem: 12/06/2020

The ammonium nitrate propellant used in the airbag inflator may experience a material alteration over time due to degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high-temperature cycling.

EU rapid alert system

  • Risk level: 1

  • Rapex alert: A12/0266/17

  • Date of the problem: 03/03/2017

If the driver’s airbag is deployed, the inflator might burst if it was subject to high air humidity, high temperatures and substantial temperature fluctuations over a number of years. This may result in the ejection of metal parts, which could cause injury or death to the driver and the passengers.
