January 9, 2018

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator May Explode

An explosion of an inflator within the passenger frontal air bag module may result in sharp metal fragments striking the front seat passenger, driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V013000

Manufacturer Subaru of America, Inc.

Components AIR BAGS

Potential Number of Units Affected 93,209

 

Summary

Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain 2009-2010 Tribeca, Impreza, Forester, WRX, Legacy, and Outback vehicles sold, or ever registered, in the states of Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

 

Remedy

Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger air bag inflator, free of charge. The recall began on February 9, 2018. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru’s number for this recall is TKB-18.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

SUBJECT: Takata Front Passenger Airbag Inflator Replacement
(2018 Calendar year expansion)

 

SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. has determined that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain Subaru vehicles listed above, equipped with a non-desiccated Takata-sourced  passenger side frontal airbag containing the propellant Phase Stabilized Ammonium Nitrate (certain specific vehicles only).

This phase of the Takata recall expansion includes the following model year vehicles:

  • Zone A vehicles – 2013 model year and older (Recall code TKA-18)
  • Zone B vehicles – 2010 model year and older (Recall code TKB-18)
  • Zone C vehicles – 2009 model year and older (Recall code TKC-18)

In addition, any older models not previously recalled which have established registration within Zones A or B since recalls TKA17 and TKB17 were implemented last year will also be included in this phase of the expansion.

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE SAFETY DEFECT AND SAFETY HAZARD

The affected vehicles are equipped with a Takata-sourced passenger side frontal airbag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion.  Over time, that could cause the inflator to rupture when the  passenger’s frontal airbag deploys in a crash.  If the inflator ruptures, metal fragments could strike vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

 

BACKGROUND

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is expanding and prioritizing the recalls of all non-desiccated Takata-sourced passenger side Takata airbag inflators based on the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants.

The combination of time, high temperature fluctuations, and humidity contribute to the degradation of the propellant in the inflators. Therefore, NHTSA is prioritizing the Takata recalls by age and location of the vehicles. To do so, NHTSA has established three geographical Zones – A, B, and C – based on the level of heat and humidity as listed below:

Zone A: Hot and Humid

Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 

Zone B: Less Hot and Humid

Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky,  Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio,  Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Zone C: Least Hot and Humid

Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota,  Montana, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

 

This phase of the Takata recall expansion includes the following model year vehicles:

  • Zone A vehicles – 2013 model year and older (Recall code TKA-18)
  • Zone B vehicles – 2010 model year and older (Recall code TKB-18)
  • Zone C vehicles – 2009 model year and older (Recall code TKC-18)

Future phases of the Takata recalls will be implemented each year until the year 2020, to include  additional vehicles until all non-desiccated Takata-sourced passenger side Takata airbag inflators are recalled.

 

REPAIR

Subaru will replace either the inflator for the front passenger airbag or the airbag module assembly at no cost to the customer.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION

Owners of the vehicles included in this phase of the Takata recall expansion is expected to begin in February, 2018.

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Listed below are the models affected by this phase of the Takata recall expansion. Not all vehicles within these ranges are affected by this phase of the Takata recall, since some of the vehicles within these ranges have already been affected by previous Takata recalls. Therefore, coverage must be  confirmed by using the Vehicle Coverage Inquiry function on subarunet.com. Coverage information will be available prior to owner notification.

 

Recall Code TKA-18 (NHTSA ID 18V-012) – Zone A MY 2013 & Older:

Recall Code TKB-18 (NHTSA ID 18V-013) – Zone B MY 2010 & Older:

Recall Code TKC-18 (NHTSA ID 18V-014) – Zone C MY 2009 & Older:

 

RETAILER AFFECTED VIN LISTS

Each Subaru retailer will receive an affected VIN list from their Zone office when owner notification begins. Vehicles will be assigned to retailers in the affected VIN list as follows:

  • Original vehicle owners are assigned to the original selling retailer when their current address is within a 100-mile radius of that retailer.
  • If the original selling retailer is inactive, the VIN has been assigned to the nearest active retailer.
  • For any new owners or when original owners live more than 100 miles from the original selling retailer, the VIN has been assigned to the nearest active retailer.

IMPORTANT:  Retailer affected VIN lists include owner name and address information for  vehicles affected by this recall.  This information will enable retailers to follow-up with owners of potentially affected vehicles.  The lists contain owners’ names and addresses obtained from State Motor Vehicle Registration Records.  The use of such motor vehicle registration data for any other purpose is unlawful.  Accordingly, retailers are urged to limit the use of these lists for the purpose of completion of this safety recall.

 

RETAILER PROGRAM RESPONSIBILITY

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

  • Immediately identified.
  • Tagged or otherwise marked to prevent their delivery or use prior to inspection and/or repair.
  • Repaired in accordance with the repair procedures outlined in this Product Campaign

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

 

PARTS INFORMATION

The parts required for this recall are the passenger airbag inflator kits or modules listed below.

Until sufficient parts supply is available for Subaru to re-notify owners, recall coverage status for  the affected vehicles will show as “Open-Limited Parts Available.” Limited parts supply will  become available prior to owner re-notification therefore, this status is not intended to discourage scheduling these repairs and will not affect the retailer’s ability to file a claim for repairs performed prior to owner re-notification.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

This Campaign involves the replacement of the inflator portion of the passenger-side front airbag assembly or the complete module assembly. The subject inflators/modules could have been assembled with improperly manufactured propellant components which may affect how the assembly inflates in the event of a collision resulting in an increased risk of injury to vehicle occupants.  This procedure will outline removal of the passenger-side airbag assembly and replacement of either the inflator component and related wiring harness or, the complete module assembly.

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.

As additional service procedures are developed for the other models affected by the expansion and implementation of this recall campaign, they will be added to this document and also made available on STIS.

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 addressed 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 airbags are not eligible for this recall repair. For more information on identifying counterfeit airbags and how to address related customer situations, please refer to STIS for the “Counterfeit Airbag Information” Dealer Advisory Bulletin dated October 25, 2012  by going to Subarunet>Service>STIS>Online Reference – choose Publication Type: ‘Other/Miscellaneous’  and search keywords: ‘Airbag’).
  • Do not proceed with this repair if your inspection reveals a non-Genuine Subaru airbag module has been installed in the vehicle. Follow the instructions described in the “Counterfeit Airbag Information” Dealer Advisory Bulletin.
  • 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 photo below shows an example of an aftermarket or counterfeit airbag inflator.  This photo is being provided as an example 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).

1 Associated Investigation

Air Bag Inflator Rupture
NHTSA ID: EA15001
Dated opened: February 24, 2015

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 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 investigation now includes all manufacturers and vehicles known to be affected at this time. ODI’s investigation will focus on, among other things, root cause analysis, other potential defect consequences, identification of affected vehicles scope, and adequacy of the remedy.

The five ODI reports cited above can be reviewed online at https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchNHTSAID under the following identification numbers: 10537899, 10568848, 10585224, 10605877, 10651492
