Mazda North American Operations is superseding a previous recall for 19,781 model year 2004-2006 B-series trucks.
Upon deployment of the passenger side front airbag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.
What to do
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger side front airbag inflator with an alternate inflator, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin January 17, 2018.
Vehicles that received a replacement airbag inflator under a previous campaign need to return to a dealer to have an alternate inflator installed.
Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 1817L.
