Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 22 model year 2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris Vans manufactured September 9, 2016, to September 28, 2016.
The passenger airbag may have been manufactured with an incorrect Tether Activation Unit (TAU). As a result, in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger front airbag, the air bag may not vent properly.
An improperly vented airbag may not protect the front passenger as expected, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
DVUSA will notify owners, and authorized Mercedes-Benz Sprinter dealers will replace the front passenger airbag, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin February 8, 2017. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267.
