NISSAN—N16 Pulsar, Y61 Patrol, D22 Navara, A33 Maxima and T30 X-Trail vehicles
What are the defects?
This is an amendment to the affected vehicles in the previous recall campaign that was launched globally in 2013.
The front passenger air bag inflator contains propellant wafers that are required to properly deploy the air bag. Some incorrect propellant wafers with insufficient density might be installed in certain inflators. This may cause the combustion rate of the propellant to increase inside the inflator, which can lead to internal pressure rising suddenly during air bag deployment and may result in abnormal deployment. In certain cases, the inflator housing may rupture and the metal fragments may scatter.
What are the hazards?
Abnormal passenger airbag deployment or metal fragment scatter may pose a hazard to the occupants of the vehicle.
What should consumers do?
Owners of affected vehicles will be advised to contact their Nissan Dealer to arrange for replacement of the front passenger airbag inflator. The replacement will be at no cost to owners.
