    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.

    A contact defect can develop over time due to friction corrosion on the plug connection between the cable harness and the fan controller. The insulation of the cable harness can therefore become damaged over time, which could trigger a short circuit.

    • Date of the problem: 11/12/2015

    The inflator of the driver’s airbag may rupture when the airbag is activated if it has been exposed to high humidity over a number of years. If the inflator ruptures, metal parts may be expelled and cause serious or even fatal injuries.
