REVISION SUMMARY

Under BACKGROUND and REPAIR PROCEDURE, the V-SMART tool was added.

 

BACKGROUND

NHTSA and its independent expert reviewed the findings of three independent investigations into the Takata airbag inflator ruptures. According to NHTSA, the combination of time, high temperature fluctuations, and humidity contribute to the degradation of the propellant in the inflators. NHTSA has concluded that this degradation can cause the propellant to burn too quickly, creating more pressure than the inflator can withstand, and, in extreme cases, causing the inflator to rupture and send shrapnel through the air bag toward vehicle occupants. NHTSA is prioritizing the recall of air bag inflators based on the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants.

This is the final phase to this campaign and involves vehicles that previously had the passenger’s airbag non-desiccated inflator replaced with a similar non-desiccated inflator (like for like), or airbag module replaced with one that contained a non-desiccated inflator. This replacement may have been done as part of a recall or other repair. Always do an iN VIN status inquiry to see if a vehicle is affected.

In early September 2019, the V-SMART tool was shipped to your dealership. This tool is used to help validate the installation of the front passenger’s airbag replacement inflator. Beginning September 30, 2019, V-SMART will be a required tool for the installation of the front passenger’s airbag replacement inflator. V-SMART validation for each of these repairs will be required for any and all warranty claims to be paid for such repairs. Refer to the job aid Using V-SMART and the Tech2Tech® video “Using V-SMART” for more information.

For more information about these inflator recalls, go to www.safercar.gov and use keyword TAKATA.

There are several bulletins with similar years and models. Make sure to do an iN VIN status inquiry and follow the indicated service bulletin.

Do an iN VIN status inquiry and, if indicated, repair the vehicle even though the vehicle may have been repaired under a previous campaign.

NOTE

If the VIN status inquiry indicates that the vehicle is subject to any open safety recalls, including the driver’s airbag inflator, make sure to also complete those recall repairs before returning the vehicle to the customer. If you are unable to complete any open recall, advise the customer of the recall status and when the recall could be completed.

You may receive a different part number than ordered, and the inflator may appear different. As a result, there may be different installation instructions. Make sure you review this service bulletin for installation instructions and details about model applicability.

 

CUSTOMER NOTIFICATION

Owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification of this campaign.

Do an iN VIN status inquiry to make sure the vehicle is shown as eligible.

Some vehicles affected by this campaign may be in your used vehicle inventory.

Failure to repair a vehicle subject to a recall or campaign may subject your dealership to claims or lawsuits from the customer or anyone else harmed as a result of such failure. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this safety recall, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.

 

CORRECTIVE ACTION

Replace the front passenger’s airbag inflator, then return the original, undeployed inflator as directed.

IDENTIFYING COUNTERFEIT AIRBAGS

This section goes over the steps to identify counterfeit airbags and applies to all vehicles in this service bulletin. It is referred to in each vehicle’s repair procedure. Click HERE to watch a video to help identify counterfeit airbags.

  • If there is nothing unusual about the airbag or the inflator, continue with the inflator replacement procedure.
  • If there are any unusual markings, like an incorrect label or a model year written in marker, the airbag and inflator may not be the correct airbag and/or inflator for the vehicle or it may be a counterfeit part. For more information about counterfeit airbags, you can refer to safercar.gov, enter keywords MANAGING COUNTERFEIT, and select Recommended Dealer Guidance for Managing Counterfeit Air Bags from the list. If you suspect that the airbag or inflator is counterfeit, do not continue this procedure. Contact your DPSM for assistance.

COUNTERFEIT AIRBAGS

 

REPAIR PROCEDURE

NOTES

  • If the VIN status inquiry indicates that the vehicle is subject to any open safety recalls, including the driver’s airbag inflator, make sure to also complete those recall repairs before returning the vehicle to the customer. If you are unable to complete any open recall, advise the customer of the recall status and when the recall could be completed.
  • Make sure you have the anti-theft code for the audio and navigation system (if applicable), then write down the frequencies for the radio’s preset buttons.
  • Be careful not to damage any parts when replacing the inflator, and follow the procedure exactly.
  • If, before removing the airbag, you suspect that it may be the incorrect airbag for the vehicle or a counterfeit, do not remove the airbag. Contact your DPSM for assistance.
  • Make sure you have reviewed the SRS Precautions and Procedures in the service information before doing the REPAIR PROCEDURE.
  1. Turn the ignition to ON position and check if the SRS indicator comes on for about 6 seconds, then turns off.
    • If the indicator comes on, then turns off after about 6 seconds, turn the ignition OFF, then go to step 2.
    • If the indicator does not come on, or if it stays on, contact your DPSM for assistance.
  2. Disconnect the battery negative cable and wait at least 3 minutes before continuing.
  3. Remove the front passenger’s airbag. Refer to the applicable vehicle’s service information.

 

NOTE

The 2007-11 Element has a one-time use clip you will have to break to remove the right A-pillar trim.

  1. Place the airbag, face-down, on a clean shop towel.

 

NOTES

  • The orientation of the airbag is critical because if the inflator is installed incorrectly, the harness will be too short when you reinstall the airbag.
  • The brackets between the various models are similar but may differ from the example shown.

airbag

  1. Visually inspect the airbag and the inflator for any unusual writing or markings. Refer to IDENTIFYING COUNTERFEIT AIRBAGS.
  1. Peel the label located inside the inflator box from its backing, and attach it to the RO. For the warranty claim to be paid, the replacement inflator part number that you received must be included in the warranty claim.

 

NOTES

  • The replacement part number is printed on the top part of the label, and the serial number is printed on the bottom. Make sure you attach the label to the RO and give it to the warranty clerk .
  • There may also be a colored sticker located in the kit; ignore it because it is not used.
  • Not all inflator kits have a label included. In those cases, write the serial number and part number from the side of the inflator box on the RO. The part number always starts with 047.

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THIS NOTICE?

Honda has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2007  2008 model year Fit vehicles. The passenger frontal airbag inflator in your vehicle may rupture when deploying during a crash. The potential for such ruptures may occur in some of the subject airbag inflators after several years of exposure to persistent conditions of high absolute humidity. In the event of passenger frontal airbag inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material striking vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death to vehicle occupants. The risk of such an occurrence increases over time. It is imperative you schedule an appointment with an authorized Honda dealer now to avoid this condition in the future.

 

WHAT WILL HONDA DO?

Honda will replace the passenger frontal airbag inflator with an inflator of a different design, free of charge. An illustration showing the location of the passenger frontal airbag inflator, which is the only component of the airbag module (other components are the airbag cushion and airbag module cover) that will be replaced, during the recall repair, is shown on the right:

 

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

For Immediate Release

 

Honda Begins Final Phase of Takata Non-desiccated Airbag Inflator Recall
Six Months Ahead of NHTSA Schedule

 

  • Phase 5 to occur ahead of NHTSA schedule due to significant Acura and Honda repair progress on existing recalls and adequate replacement parts supplies to repair all affected models
  • Prior to this expansion, Honda’s overall Takata inflator recall completion rate was 83.0%, including yearly scheduled recall expansions since May 2016
  • Since Phase 5 primarily includes Takata non-desiccated replacement inflators used in early recall repairs, the total number of recalled Honda and Acura vehicles in the U.S. does not change significantly with this action

 

TORRANCE, Calif. – June 28, 2019 – In the fifth and final phase of planned recalls announced by NHTSA in May 2016, Honda will conduct recalls covering approximately

1.6 million Honda and Acura automobiles in the United States to replace, for free, Takata replacement front airbag inflators that do not contain a moisture absorbing desiccant. With this final action, taken six months ahead of NHTSA’s schedule, Honda has now recalled all Takata non-desiccated airbag inflators installed in Honda and Acura vehicles in the United States.

The inflators included in Phase 5 were used as replacement parts during early Takata airbag inflator recall repairs or were part of whole airbag modules replaced for other reasons prior to February 2017. Excluding vehicles subject to the earlier Takata driver airbag inflator recalls, only 59 additional Honda and Acura vehicles in the U.S. will become subject to a Takata airbag inflator recall for the first time because of this action.

Honda decided to take this action early, ahead of NHTSA’s planned expansion date in late December 2019, because it has made significant progress with existing recall repairs (83.0% completion rate as of 6/7/2019). The company also has adequate replacement parts, all from alternative suppliers, to repair all affected Acura and Honda models, including those in the expanded population. Thus, owners of affected vehicles should seek repair immediately at authorized Honda and Acura dealers.

In addition, all Honda Gold Wing motorcycles equipped with defective inflators in the U.S. were included in earlier recalls and remain eligible for repair. There have been no Takata airbag inflator ruptures involving Honda motorcycles globally. For more information about the history of Honda motorcycle airbags, please visit https://world.honda.com/MotorcycleAirbag/history/.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage each owner of an affected vehicle to schedule repair at an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Replacement parts are available, all from alternate suppliers, to begin free recall repairs immediately, and a free rental car is available to the vehicle owner for the day of the recall repair or longer if a replacement part is temporarily unavailable. Mailed notification to owners of recalled vehicles will begin in mid-August 2019. Automobile owners may also check their vehicles’ recall status now at www.recalls.acura.com and www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (888) 234-2138. Motorcycle customers can check recall status at www.powersports.honda.com/recalls or they can call (866) 784-1870 for Honda motorcycle recall information.

Since this recall primarily involves replacement inflators installed in vehicles previously subject to recall, the total number of Honda and Acura vehicles affected by Takata recalls does not change significantly with this action. The total number of recalled inflators does rise to approximately 22.6 million in approximately 12.9 million Honda and Acura automobiles that have been or now are subject to recall for replacement of a Takata driver and/or passenger front airbag inflator in the United States. In addition, approximately 4,540 Honda Gold Wing motorcycles are subject to recall for the replacement of the Takata airbag inflator module. No motorcycle products are involved in the recall announced today.

TO: All Honda Parts & Service Managers, Advisors and Personnel
FROM: Brad Ortloff, Manager of Auto Campaigns and Recalls
RE: Stop Sale/Safety Recall: 2001-2015 Multi-Model Honda Driver and Passenger Frontal Airbag Inflator
Yesterday, June 27, 2019, American Honda notified NHTSA of a stop sale and safety recall for certain model year 2001-2015 Honda vehicles to
address concerns related to specific Takata driver’s and passenger’s frontal airbag inflators that could potentially rupture in a crash due to
prolonged temperature cycling and environmental moisture. Refer to your eResponsibility report or do an iN VIN status inquiry to determine
which units in your inventory are affected.
Failure to repair a vehicle as necessary prior to sale may subject your dealership to claims or lawsuits.
Click Here to view a special message from Yoshihisa Takatsuka, Senior Vice President of Parts, Service & Technical Operations.
BACKGROUND
In accordance with the five-phased recall of Takata non-desiccated airbag inflators established by NHTSA in May 2016 (refer to the attached
document outlining NHTSA’s overall plan (click here)), American Honda has proactively expanded the Takata inflator recall ahead of NHTSA’s
planned timing. The vehicles involved in this phase of the recall were repaired with like-for-like replacement inflator parts in the early stages of
the current driver’s and passenger’s frontal airbag inflator recalls (service bulletins 15-040, 15-067, 16-016, 17-010, 16-047, 16-048, 17-001,
17-002, 18-002, 18-003, 18-099 and 18-098) or as part of a service repair that involved a replacement airbag module using Takata
non-desiccated inflators. Over-pressurization in an inflator during airbag deployment could cause the inflator to rupture and eject sharp metal
fragments into the cabin, increasing the risk of injury or death.
REPAIR
Vehicles affected by service bulletins 19-076, 19-079, 19-080 and/or 19-081 require removal and replacement of the driver’s and/or
passenger’s frontal airbag inflator.
PARTS
Parts to support the repair of vehicles affected by this phase of the recall are available through normal airbag inflator ordering process.
Replacement inflators will also continue to be offered on Parts Auto Ship.
Note: No new part numbers have been added through this ac????on; service bulletins 19-076, 19-079, 19-080 and, 19-081 reference inflators
already available under previous recalls.

Please take a moment to review this important video message from Yoshi Takatsuka with information regarding the
Takata airbag inflator recalls.
Click here to watch the video or refer to the post titled, “Takata Airbag Recall Update 6/28/2019 on the Parts,
Service, Sales, or Executive Management landing pages on iN.
Below is the script for your reference:
Hi, I’m Yoshi Takatsuka. Today, I’m going to provide you with an update regarding the final phase of the Takata
non-desiccated Airbag Inflator recall.
As you know, this recall is the largest and most complex in U.S. history, affecting 19 automakers and approximately
70 million inflators. For Honda and Acura, we have recalled around 20 million inflators and we have replaced more
than 14.7 million of them.
None of this would be possible without the strong support of our dealers. For that, I sincerely thank you. American
Honda appreciates your commitment to working through this most difficult situation and most importantly, for taking
care of our customers.
Last September, Bruce Smith provided you with details on NHTSA’s phased recall of all Takata non-desiccated phase
stabilized ammonium nitrate airbag inflators. Based on this schedule, affected automakers are required to launch the
fifth and final phase of NHTSA’s planned Takata inflator recalls by the end of this year. The parts identified in this
phase of the recall are non-desiccated Takata inflators that were originally used as replacement parts in the early
stages of the Takata recall. These replacement parts are also referred to as like-for-like replacement parts.
Together, we are making good progress through each phase, and we have a sufficient parts supply from alternative
suppliers, not Takata. As a result, we have decided to launch this final phase of NHTSA’s planned recalls ahead of
schedule. We will begin this final phase at the end of June.
I want to stress a very important point. The parts in this recall are Takata non-desiccated inflators used as
replacement parts. Therefore, most of these customers have already been to your dealerships several years ago for
an inflator replacement. This means these customers may be confused since they believe they have already
completed the necessary recall repairs. To minimize this confusion, please take advantage of all resources available
to you, such as referencing your eResponsibility report and VIN inquiry to identify affected vehicles. We will also
provide updated service bulletins with step-by-step instructions for repair, parts ordering and claim submission.
Please make sure dealer personnel follow instructions carefully to ensure proper completion of recall repairs.
Finally, again, I want to express my appreciation for your efforts to repair these vehicles and make our customers
safety the #1 priority. Thank you.

Description of the basis for the determination of the recall population:
According to the May 4, 2016 Amendment to the November 3, 2015 Consent Order, the fifth
phase of the Takata DIRs that affect the subject vehicles (Priority Groups 11-12) are not
scheduled until late 2019. However, in consideration of a sufficient supply of final remedy
inflators, and upon consultation with the NHTSA, Honda is further accelerating the launch of the
remedy for these vehicles ahead of the late 2019 scheduled Takata DIRs.
The recall population was determined based on dealership warranty, repair order, and service
parts records. The production range reflects all possible vehicles that could potentially
experience the problem.
Description of how the vehicles being recalled differ from similar vehicles not included in
the recall:
This recall is specific to vehicles that received a PSPI/PSPI-L passenger frontal airbag inflator
either as a recall remedy part or as a replacement service part (replacement passenger frontal
airbag module containing a PSPI/PSPI-L inflator). Similar vehicles not included in this recall
either were repaired with a passenger frontal airbag inflator from an alternative manufacturer, or
are currently subject to an open passenger frontal airbag inflator recall.
Identification of affected component:
Component: Passenger’s Frontal Airbag Inflator (PSPI/PSPI-L)

573.6(c)(5)
Defect description:
According to the May 4, 2016 Amendment to the November 3, 2015 Consent Order, Takata
agreed to conduct recalls on a rolling basis for a defect in all driver and passenger inflators that
contain a PSAN-based propellant, and do not contain a moisture-absorbing desiccant.
Specifically, a defect related to motor vehicle safety may arise in some of the subject nondesiccated
PSAN inflators due to propellant degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to
high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high temperature cycling. Activation of a nondesiccated
PSAN inflator with degraded propellant may result in an inflator rupture. An inflator
rupture may cause metal fragments to pass through the air bag and into the vehicle interior at
high speed, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.
573.6(c)(6)
Chronology:
May 29, 2019
In consideration of a sufficient supply of final remedy inflators, Honda consulted with the NHTSA
about advancing the recall launch of Priority Groups 11-12 vehicles.
June 20, 2019
Honda determined that a defect related to motor vehicle safety existed and decided to conduct a
safety recall ahead of the fifth phase of the Takata DIRs scheduled for late 2019.
573.6(c)(8)(i)
Program for remedying the defect:
The owners of all affected vehicles will be contacted by mail and asked to take their vehicle to
an Acura or Honda automobile dealer. The dealer will replace the passenger frontal airbag
inflator with a new inflator, free of charge.
573.6(c)(8)(ii)
The estimated date to start notification to dealers: June 28, 2019
The estimated date to start notifications to owners: August 12, 2019
573.6(c)(9)
Representative copies of all notices, bulletins and other communications:
A copy of the dealer service bulletin, the final customer notification letter and other dealer
communication will be submitted to your office as soon as possible.
573.6(c)(10)
Proposed owner notification letter submission:
A draft of the owner notification letter will be submitted to your office as soon as possible.

1 Associated Investigation

Air Bag Inflator Rupture
NHTSA ID: EA15001
Dated opened: February 24, 2015

The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) opened PE14-016 in June 2014 based on six inflator rupture incidents involving consumer owned vehicles produced by five vehicle manufacturers. All six vehicles were operated in Florida or Puerto Rico at the time of the rupture and for the majority of their service life, and were equipped with inflators produced by Takata, a tier-one supplier of automotive air bag systems.

During the course of PE14-016, ODI determined that five additional vehicle manufacturers used inflators of a similar design and vintage also supplied by Takata. No evidence of field failures was found in vehicles produced by these five additional manufacturers. Nonetheless, at ODI’s insistence, all 10 vehicle manufacturers initiated a regional recall within approximately two weeks of the opening of the investigation. The regions recalled initially included Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, areas with high absolute humidity and climatic conditions believed to be a significant factor in the inflator ruptures. As part of the recall actions, inflators removed from remedied vehicles are to be returned to Takata for testing.

Takata’s initial test results on passenger inflators from remedied vehicles indicated a much higher than anticipated rupture frequency for inflators returned from Florida. Accordingly ODI requested all 10 manufacturers expand the regional recalls for passenger inflators to include other geographic areas where high absolute humidity conditions exist, including the Gulf States and other coastal areas. Takata’s testing of the passenger inflators to date continues to indicate this geographic area as having the highest risk, with no ruptures occurring from inflators returned from outside the expanded recall regions. During PE14-016 four additional passenger inflator field events occurred, all in vehicles from the same expanded geographic region.

Also during PE14-016 four additional driver inflator field events occurred including two in vehicles from regions not known for high absolute humidity, specifically California and North Carolina. Accordingly, ODI requested all five of the affected vehicle manufacturers currently using the subject Takata driver inflators expand to nationwide recalls. Significantly, neither of the affected vehicle manufacturers or Takata provided any explanation to account for these two driver air bag inflator ruptures outside the area of high absolute humidity. Takata testing of returned driver inflators indicates a lower rupture frequency as compared to passenger inflator testing. All test ruptures reported by Takata to date have occurred on inflators returned from high absolute humidity areas.

The investigation now includes all manufacturers and vehicles known to be affected at this time. ODI’s investigation will focus on, among other things, root cause analysis, other potential defect consequences, identification of affected vehicles scope, and adequacy of the remedy.

The five ODI reports cited above can be reviewed online at https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchNHTSAID under the following identification numbers: 10537899, 10568848, 10585224, 10605877, 10651492
