What are the defects?

 In the affected vehicles, continued exposure of the driver and passenger-side air bag inflators 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?

The ruptured inflator may create metallic fragments that could contact an occupant, increasing the risk of injury.

What should consumers do?

Mazda Australia will 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 Driver Side airbag inflator at No Charge. Consumers who require further information should contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
