Default Re: So how bout' that airbag recall? (Expanded 6/1/16)

There is a new recall on the airbags - Recall 17S42

According to the letter that I received, this recall is required even if the issue has been fixed under a previous recall. Dealers are supposed to have parts by Jan 15. My dealer had parts in stock, so I got mine done a couple of days ago.

=========================================
Recall Date: DEC 13, 2017
Recall Title: DRIVER AND PASSENGER AIRBAG INFLATOR REPLACEMENT
NHTSA Recall Number: 17V788
Ford Recall Number: 17S42

Recall Description: DRIVER AND PASSENGER AIRBAG INFLATOR REPLACEMENT

Risk to Safety: THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER AIRBAG INFLATORS IN YOUR VEHICLE MAY EXPLODE IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH THAT CAUSES DEPLOYMENT OF EITHER FRONTAL AIRBAG. IF AN INFLATOR EXPLODES, METAL FRAGMENTS COULD STRIKE THE DRIVER OR OTHER OCCUPANTS CAUSING SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. THIS FREE REPAIR IS A FINAL REPAIR FOR BOTH THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER FRONTAL AIRBAGS ON YOUR VEHICLE.

Remedy Program: PARTS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO REPAIR YOUR VEHICLE BEGINNING THE WEEK OF JANUARY 15, 2018. FORD MOTOR COMPANY HAS AUTHORIZED YOUR DEALER TO REPLACE THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER AIRBAG INFLATORS FREE OF CHARGE PARTS AND LABOR.

Status: 12 - RECALL INCOMPLETE. REMEDY NOT YET AVAILABLE.

Manufacturer Notes: TO CHECK FOR NON-SAFETY-RELATED PROGRAMS APPLICABLE TO YOUR VEHICLE, SEE HTTP://WWW.FORD.COM/ OR CALL YOUR FORD DEALER.

My ranger became a fusion as a reaction to the recall. Just did not like no estimate of when parts would be available and having a one passenger vehicle.

I got a letter telling me not to let anyone sit on the passenger side of my Ranger until the airbag has been replaced. And with Takata filing for bankruptcy I doubt I'll ever see a replacement. I haven't let anyone sit on the passenger side since then because I care about my passengers. This whole thing has become a real pain in the arse.
