NUMBER: WQP-51R
DATE: January 2015
NHTSA ID: 14V-763
REVISED: August 24, 2015

APPLICABILITY: 2003-2005 Subaru Legacy and Outback**
2003-2005 Subaru Baja
2004-2005 Subaru Impreza**
(including WRX and STI)
SUBJECT: Regional Front Passenger Air Bag Inflator Replacement

 

THIS RECALL SUPERSEDES RECALL NUMBER WQM-49 (14V-471)

 

Subaru is conducting this limited regional recall to replace the front passenger air bag inflators produced by TK Holdings, Inc. (Takata) in certain 2003-2005 model year Legacy, Outback, and Baja vehicles and certain 2004-2005 model year Impreza (including WRX/STI) vehicles currently or previously registered in the following areas of high absolute humidity:

  • The following States and U.S. Territories:
    • Florida
    • Hawaii
    • Puerto Rico
    • S. Virgin Islands
    • Guam
    • Saipan
    • American Samoa
  • The counties of Georgia which are adjacent to Florida
  • The coastal areas of:
    • Alabama о Louisiana
    • Mississippi
    • Texas

 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is currently investigating the cause of the potential for ruptured Takata air bag inflators and the influence of high absolute humidity. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of an affected passenger frontal air bag, it is possible that the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the vehicle occupants.

 

REGIONAL EXPANSION – HIGH ABSOLUTE HUMIDITY

This recall is a geographic expansion of the previous WQM-49 limited regional recall, which included vehicles with registration history in: Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Consistent with other automotive manufacturers involved in regional recalls of Takata front passenger air bag inflators, the WQP-51 recall will include additional areas of high absolute humidity based on the annual mean dew point temperature of 60.0 degrees Fahrenheit or more, and locations within 125 miles of these areas.

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

The vehicles affected by this recall were identified by the production date range of the front passenger air bag inflators installed during vehicle production, and each vehicle’s registration history.

**NOTE: 2004-05MY Impreza and 2005MY Legacy / Outback models have been incorporated into WQR-53.

All vehicles affected by the WQM-49 regional recall that were not yet repaired will be included in the WQP-51 regional recall. Once WQP-51 coverage is available in the Vehicle Coverage Inquiry on subarunet.com, any open WQM-49 coverage will be expired.

Not all vehicles within the following vehicle production date ranges are covered by this recall.

Vehicle coverage for this recall must be confirmed by using the Vehicle Coverage Inquiry function on subarunet.com.  This data will be available when owner notification begins.

  • Once a month or upon accumulating 200 kits for return (whichever comes first), please call Takata XPO at 1-877-650-3476 for pick up. Please see step 6 (on pg. 26) of the return instructions.

  • IMPORTANT: Each removed air bag inflator must be returned directly to the supplier, Takata USA, in the same box in which the new one was received.

The shipping box contains a bar code label, which will be used by Takata USA to document the replacement of the old inflator with the new inflator. Therefore, it is very important that the removed inflator be returned in the exact same box that contained the newly- installed inflator for that vehicle. If the original box cannot be re-used, please refer to the shipping instructions under “Requesting a new box/ shipping labels.”

  • IMPORTANT: When affixing the shipping label to the shipping box do not obstruct the bar code label.

CAUTION: Before starting this service procedure, perform a visual inspection of both front airbags looking for any damage or abnormality. Next, turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position and confirm the airbag warning lamp illuminates then extinguishes normally. If it does not or if ANY concern is noted with the airbag system, STOP and report these findings to the customer BEFORE proceeding further. Any concerns identified with the airbag system (when no airbag deployment has occurred), are not related to this campaign and must be ad- dressed separately. Even if the system has a concern, this may not preclude completion of this campaign. If you are unsure about proceeding, document and fully diagnose the concern then contact the SOA Technical Helpline to review your findings. It is in the best interest of the retailer to fully document any concerns found during this preliminary inspection and review with the customer BEFORE proceeding with the campaign service procedure.

  • Vehicles that do not contain Genuine Subaru air bags are not eligible for this recall For more information on identifying counterfeit air bags and how to address related customer situations, please refer to STIS for the “Counterfeit Air Bag Information” Dealer Advisory Bulletin dated October 25, 2012 by going to Subarunet>Service>STIS>Online Reference – choose Publication Type: ‘Other/ Miscellaneous’  and search keywords: ‘Air Bag’).
  • Do not proceed with this repair if your inspection reveals a non-Genuine Subaru air bag module has been installed in the vehicle. Follow the instructions described in the “Counterfeit Air Bag Information” Dealer Advisory Bulletin and contact the SOA Warranty Helpline to close out the recall coverage on the vehicle.
  • IMPORTANT: Always examine airbag modules closely before and during removal. Confirm they match the photos of the Genuine Subaru airbag components supplied throughout this bulletin BEFORE The photos below are just 2 examples of aftermarket or counterfeit airbag components identified by retailers since the release of this campaign bulletin. These photos are being provided as only 2 examples of what may be a wide variety of non-OEM components.
  • If an aftermarket or counterfeit passenger airbag or inflator is identified at any point during the campaign service procedure, STOP IMMEDIATELY. NEVER attempt to remove or otherwise disable any aftermarket or counterfeit device.
  • Document the presence of the aftermarket or counterfeit device on the repair order and with photos.  Report this information immediately on a Quality Monitoring Report (QMR).
  • Once the QMR has been submitted, contact the Subaru Claims Helpline to discuss the details. They will advise you on how to proceed with treatment of the open campaign.

 

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE AS OF AUGUST 4, 2016:

Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) has been notified by Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI) that some early production 2003 MY Legacy, Outback, and Baja vehicles may have been incorrectly included in the list of vehicles requiring inflator replacement as part of the on-going Takata recalls listed above.

  • These early production 2003 MY vehicles (77,000) were equipped with inflators which do not contain ammonium nitrate.
  • These inflators which do not contain ammonium nitrate do not require replacement as part of any Subaru airbag recall.

 

Description of the Remedy

The inspection involves lowering of the glovebox to provide enough access to visually inspect the label on the airbag module. Labels containing “7LF” identify inflators WITHOUT ammonium nitrate and those with “7LG” identify inflators WITH ammonium nitrate as shown in the photos below. If the vehicle in question is identified as having an airbag inflator without ammonium nitrate installed, STOP and note the 11-digit serial number ONLY as no further action is required other than refitting the glove box. Only vehicles with airbag inflators containing ammonium nitrate are affected by this campaign.

 See the Claim Reimbursement and Entry Procedures at the end of this announcement for instructions on how to submit a claim for “Inspection Only” when an inflator without ammonium nitrate is identified.

Inflator WITHOUT Ammonium Nitrate- Serial Number Label Location (2003 Legacy, Outback and Baja models only): Record this 12-digit number for claims purposes.

 

Inflator WITH Ammonium Nitrate- Serial Number Label Location

 

  • Additional 2003 Leg / Obk / Baja Module / Inflator Inspection info to add:

If the serial number label is missing, illegible or if there is any uncertainty if the airbag module is affected by this Recall Campaign, follow the Counterfeit / Non-Genuine airbag inspection process provided above. Always take photos of the module showing the entire inflator along with an additional photo showing the area where the label should be as seen in the photos below. Next, submit a Quality Monitoring Report (QMR) requesting SOA review. A member of the Claims Team will contact the Retailer following review of the QMR submission with information on how to proceed.

You received this notice because our records indicate that you currently own one of these vehicles.

REASON FOR THE RECALL

The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) is investigating whether exposure to high absolute humidity may, upon air bag deployment, lead to a rupture of air bag inflators produced by TK Holdings, Inc. (Takata). In cooperation with that investigation, Subaru is conducting this regional recall to replace Takata front passenger

air bag inflators in certain vehicles with current or previous registration in the following areas of high absolute humidity:

  • The following States and U.S. Territories: o Florida
    • Hawaii
    • Puerto Rico
    • S. Virgin Islands o Guam
    • Saipan
    • American Samoa
  • The counties of Georgia which are adjacent to Florida
  • The coastal areas of:
    • Alabama
    • Louisiana
    • Mississippi
    • Texas
SAFETY HAZARD
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front passenger air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the vehicle occupants.

 

REMEDY

Subaru will replace the inflator for your front passenger air bag at no cost to you.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
You should immediately contact your Subaru retailer (dealer) for an appointment to have the front passenger air bag inflator replaced with a new one.
Until this repair is performed, do not allow passengers to ride in the front passenger seat.

 

Although we have not experienced a parts shortage, we will cover a loaner vehicle if your retailer does not have the part in stock to repair your vehicle under this recall. If you are uncomfortable driving the vehicle to your Subaru retailer, please contact your Subaru retailer who will arrange for vehicle pick up.

 

HOW LONG WILL THE AIR BAG INFLATOR REPLACEMENT TAKE?

The time to replace the front passenger air bag inflator is approximately one hour and 45 minutes for the affected 2005 model year Legacy and Outback vehicles, and approximately 40 minutes for all of the other vehicles affected by this recall. It may be necessary to leave your vehicle for a longer period of time on the day of your scheduled appointment to allow your Subaru retailer flexibility in scheduling.

1 Associated Investigation

Air Bag Inflator Rupture
NHTSA ID: PE14016
Dated opened: June 11, 2014

The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) opened PE14-016 in June 2014 based on six inflator rupture incidents involving consumer owned vehicles produced by five vehicle manufacturers. All six vehicles were operated in Florida or Puerto Rico at the time of the rupture and for the majority of their service life, and were equipped with inflators produced by Takata, a tier-one supplier of automotive air bag systems.

During the course of PE14-016, ODI determined that five additional vehicle manufacturers used inflators of a similar design and vintage also supplied by Takata. No evidence of field failures was found in vehicles produced by these five additional manufacturers. Nonetheless, at ODI’s insistence, all 10 vehicle manufacturers initiated a regional recall within approximately two weeks of the opening of the investigation. The regions recalled initially included Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, areas with consistently high absolute humidity and climatic conditions believed to be a significant factor in the inflator ruptures. As part of the recall actions, inflators removed from remedied vehicles are to be returned to Takata for testing.

Takata’s initial test results on passenger inflators from remedied vehicles indicated a much higher than anticipated rupture frequency for inflators returned from Florida. Accordingly, ODI requested all 10 manufacturers expand the regional recalls for passenger inflators to include other geographic areas where high absolute humidity conditions exist, including the Gulf States and other coastal areas. Takata’s testing of the passenger inflators to date continues to indicate this geographic area as having the highest risk, with no ruptures occurring from inflators returned from outside the expanded recall regions. During PE14-016, four additional passenger inflator field events occurred, all in vehicles from the same expanded geographic region.

Also during PE14-016, four additional driver inflator field events occurred including two in vehicles from regions not known for high absolute humidity, specifically California and North Carolina. Accordingly, ODI requested all five of the affected vehicle manufacturers currently using the subject Takata driver inflators expand to nationwide recalls. Significantly, neither of the affected vehicle manufacturers or Takata provided any explanation to account for these two driver air bag inflator ruptures outside the area of high absolute humidity. Takata testing of returned driver inflators indicates a lower rupture frequency as compared to passenger inflator testing. All test ruptures reported by Takata to date have occurred on inflators returned from high absolute humidity areas.

The PE is now closed/upgraded to an Engineering Evaluation (EA15-001) to include all manufacturers and vehicles known to be affected at this time. ODI’s EA investigation will focus on, among other things, root cause analysis, other potential defect consequences, identification of affected vehicles scope, and adequacy of the remedy.
