DATE: 02/27/23
NHTSA ID: 23V-076

APPLICABILITY: 2004-2005 Impreza (including WRX)
SUBJECT: Improper Air Bag Inflator Installation



Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is initiating this safety recall for certain 2004-2005 model year Impreza (including WRX) vehicles in which the replacement frontal passenger-side air bag inflator may have been incorrectly installed.



The vehicles included in this safety recall had a previous mobile air bag recall repair performed by a third-party contractor on behalf of Subaru. The replacement air bag inflator may have been incorrectly installed during that repair.

An incorrectly installed air bag inflator may not properly inflate the passenger-side airbag, which could increase the risk of an injury during a crash.



For all potentially affected vehicles, Subaru will inspect the passenger-side inflator installation and, if necessary, install a new inflator kit at no cost to the customer.



A total of 130 vehicles will be affected by this recall, as listed below:

Model Year Carline Production Date Range
2004-2005 Impreza (including WRX) January 14, 2003 – March 19, 2005

Not all vehicles in the production range listed above are affected by this recall. Coverage must be confirmed by using the Vehicle Coverage Inquiry function on subarunet.com prior to repair. This information is now available.



Any vehicles listed in any recall/campaign that are in retailer stock must be:

  • Immediately identified
  • Tagged or otherwise marked to prevent their delivery or use prior to repair
  • Repaired in accordance with the repair procedures outlined in the Product Campaign Bulletin

Retailers are to promptly perform the applicable service procedures, to correct all affected vehicles in their inventory (used, demo & SSLP). Whenever a vehicle subject to this recall is taken into retailer inventory necessary steps should be taken to ensure the recall correction has been made before selling or releasing the vehicle.



Subaru is in the process of obtaining current owner registration data and will notify affected vehicle owners by first class mail within 60 days. Retailer will be advised when notification begins.

As a reminder, if a customer requests a loaner car, retailers should make every effort to comply with that request and follow normal warranty procedures to obtain reimbursement for the loaner car. See Section 8.4.7 (Alternate Transportation Program) of the Claims Policies and Procedures Manual on subarunet.com under ‘Claims & Warranty Administration’ for details.



Inflator Kit Part Number Order Quantity
98279FE070 1

VERY IMPORTANT: Failure to follow these service procedures carefully and correctly may result in an accidental deployment of the inflator and potentially cause serious injury. Please read through and understand these procedures COMPLETELY before beginning repairs. In addition, proper operation of the airbag after reassembly may be compromised if these service procedures are not followed.

Wire Cutters 1
Needle-Nose Pliers 1
Torque Wrench Inch-Pound 1
Safety Goggles 1
Flat-Blade Screwdriver 1
Scissors 1
Ratchet 1/4” Drive 1
8 mm and 10 mm Socket 1 each
Airbag Deployment Fixture J-39401-B 1



The repair procedures for this recall include a required inspection prior to replacement, to confirm whether the (98279FE070) inflator is correctly installed.

CAUTION: Refer to the “CAUTION” section in the General Description portion of Airbag System AB in the Body Section of the Service Manual before handling or servicing the airbag module!



  • Turn the ignition “OFF”.
  • Disconnect the Negative (ground) cable from the battery and wait at least 60 seconds before proceeding further.
  • Remove the glove box assembly following the procedure in the applicable Service Manual.

IMPORTANT: Whenever beginning to remove (or install) the airbag assembly, and periodically while performing the procedure or after stepping away, remove any possible static charge from your body by momentarily touching a clean, bare metal ground point on the vehicle (e.g. the door striker). Remove from your person all electronic devices including cellphones before proceeding.

  • Disconnect the airbag module harness connector from the support beam bracket.
  • Remove the 3 retaining bolts and CAREFULLY remove the airbag module from the vehicle and place it on a clean cloth to protect the dash trim surface portion from damage.

NOTE: There may be a Security Module secured with the lower airbag module mounting bolt on some models.


STEP 2: Visually inspect the airbag inflator positioning.

INCORRECT: When incorrectly installed (backwards) the inflator cylinder (silver colored) metal is exposed, and a gap can be seen between the inflator and the end bracket. Further action will be required. Follow this service procedure. If inspection confirms the inflator is installed incorrectly (backwards), photograph the incorrectly installed inflator in the bracket and attach photo to the claim, then proceed to the “INFLATOR REPLACEMENT” section of this campaign.

CORRECT:  When correctly installed, no inflator cylinder metal is exposed and there are no gaps between the inflator and the end brackets on both sides. If inspection confirms the affected vehicle has the inflator installed correctly in the bracket, do not remove inflator from the bracket. Photograph the inflator in the bracket and attach photo to the claim. Reinstall the airbag assembly as per the applicable Service Manual.



IMPORTANT: DO NOT destroy or damage the kit box as it MUST be used for the removed inflator’s return shipping.

  • Open the Kit Box and confirm all the necessary components are included:

4 Self-Locking nuts

New Type 2 Inflator (pink collars on each end identify it as the replacement part)

New Inflator Harness

New Stopper Plate

Electro-Tap (red shorting crimp connector)

1 ½” X 2 ¼” piece of self-adhesive Sponge Tape

Shipping Documentation and Instructions

IMPORTANT: The removed airbag module must be mounted to the Airbag Deployment Fixture (part number J-39401-B) as shown in the photo below to better secure it during the inflator and wiring harness component replacement procedures. Always perform this work in an area away from others to reduce chances of inadvertent injury should any deployment occur. Take your surroundings into account to avoid possible hazards should inadvertent deployment occur or sources of static or other electricity that could potentially induce such a deployment.


STEP 1- Peel the Sponge Tape and remove the harness clip from the retainer bracket by pushing the tangs inward with a flat-blade screwdriver as shown below. Always remove any Sponge Tape adhesive residue from the airbag mounting bracket using mild solvent on a clean shop cloth.

CAUTION: Never use any silicone-based products for this purpose.


STEP 2- CAREFULLY cut the yellow harness cover enough (approximately 2 inches) to expose the 2 red (or yellow) wires inside and provide enough room to install the Electro-Tap (shorting) connector using a wire cutter or scissor (no knives or razors). TAKE YOUR TIME AND BE CAREFUL TO NOT CUT THE 2 WIRES!


STEP 3- Short the 2 wires together by installing the Electro-Tap connector. The connector creates a short circuit which acts as a safeguard to prevent against static discharge that may deploy the removed inflator. The tab portion of the Electro-Tap connector MUST be cut off prior to use to insure a good short-circuit is made as shown in the illustration below. Follow the sequence below for installing the Electro-Tap connector. Use pliers to squeeze closed the two sections of the connector together, one section at a time.


STEP 4- Once the Electro-Tap connector is fully crimped in place, cut the 2 wires on the body harness connector side of the Electro-Tap connector.


VERY IMPORTANT: Under no circumstances should any impact or power tools be used when performing these procedures. HAND TOOLS ONLY!


STEP 5- Remove the two 8mm self-locking nuts securing the stopper plate. Loosen but do not remove the other two nuts on the mounting bracket as leaving them in place will help keep the airbag assembly together.


STEP 6- VERY IMPORTANT: Record the 14-digit numeric serial number for the new inflator on the Repair Order hard copy. This information will be required for claim approval.


STEP 7- Inspect the new inflator to confirm the locating protrusions on each of the pink-collar portions are aligned as shown below. The “short” collar can be rotated as needed to align it with the protrusion on the “long” collar if necessary.


STEP 8– Install the new inflator into the mounting bracket, short collar with the “blank” (no harness connector) end going in first. The protrusion on the short collar will fit in the gap at the bottom of the fixed stopper plate portion. At the same time, the ridge portion of the inflator side of the stopper plate will fit into the “notch” in the end of the collar. When properly installed, the end of the inflator will be seated tight against the mounting bracket with NO gap. DO NOT peel the white harness connection dust cover at this time.


STEP 9- Install the new stopper plate over the harness connector end of the new inflator.

Remove the 2 nuts still installed on the mounting bracket and replace them with 2 NEW self-locking nuts. Once all 4 NEW nuts are in place, torque to 31 – 38 inch pounds in the new sequence shown below. Use a marker to mark the nuts after torquing indicating they have been fully tightened.


STEP 10– Peel off the white dust cover and CAREFULLY align the tang of the new harness connector with the receiving slot in the inflator connector. This assures proper routing of the harness in relation to the airbag assembly mounting brackets.


Step 11– Reinstall the wiring harness retaining clip into its position on the mounting bracket.

IMPORTANT: Confirm the harness is not twisted at the inflator connector as shown below.


STEP 12- Peel the adhesive backing and install the new Sponge Tape onto the yellow harness tube first then adhere it to the airbag mounting bracket as shown in the illustrations below.


STEP 14- Reinstall the airbag assembly into the vehicle in reverse order of disassembly. NOTE: If the accessory security module is installed to one of the airbag module mounting bolts, torque that specific bolt to 7.5 +/-1ft. lb. rather than the normal 5.4 ft. lb. specified in the Service Manual. Before installing the glove box assembly, reconnect the negative battery cable. Turn the ignition key “ON” and confirm the AIRBAG warning light comes on then cycles off properly. Once proper warning light operation is confirmed, reinstall the glove box assembly while making sure the cord loop for the opening dampener (if equipped) stays connected to complete the procedure.


STEP 15- Place the removed air bag inflator in the “cradle” of the Kit Box insert, with a completed SOA warranty parts tag (MSA5W402A) attached to it. The tag must contain the following information: Claim Number, Repair Date, 17-digit VIN, and vehicle mileage. Refer to the “PARTS RETURN PROCEDURES” section of this bulletin (page 12) for further return shipping instructions and information.



Type or print the necessary information on a Service Program identification label. The completed label should be attached to the vehicle’s upper radiator support.

Additional labels are available through normal parts ordering channels. The part number is MSA6P1302. Ordering qty 1 = 1 sheet of 20 labels.
