Driver's airbag inflator - beta
Identifying features

Reasons the product is recalled

Airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.

The hazards to consumers

In the event that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments may propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality. If you are involved in a collision, the airbag may go off with too much explosive force causing sharp metal fragments to shoot out and kill or seriously injure people in the vehicle.

What consumers should do

Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Mercedes-Benz dealership or Mercedes-Benz head office directly via the website at to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.

Consumers who are unsure whether they are affected can also use the Mercedes-Benz VIN look-up tool at or contact Mercedes-Benz on 1300 659 307 (between 8.30am and 5pm), by emailing or contact their preferred dealer.
