What are the defects?

In the affected vehicles, continued exposure of the passenger-side air bag inflator to high levels of absolute humidity may cause the front air bag inflator housing to rupture and deploy abnormally in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the frontal air bag.

What are the hazards?

An inflator rupture could result in metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring vehicle occupants.

What should consumers do?

Mazda Australia will progressively contact all affected customers by mail as soon as parts become available to present their vehicle to their preferred Mazda Dealer for the replacement of the Passenger Side airbag inflator at no charge.
