WHAT IF YOU DON'T GET THE AIRBAG REPLACED
In the event of an impact where the airbag is deployed, the inflator part of the airbag may ignite in such a manner that it creates excessive internal pressure. As a result the metal inflator casing may rupture, causing metal fragmanets to be propelled through the airbag and into the vehicle.
WHAT ROWES HONDA WILL DO
Once your vehicle is received at the dealership, it will have a modified inflator instaled into the airbag module. The work will take approximately 1 hour to complete and will be carried out free of charge.
