Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

The igniter for the passenger air bag is what gets replaced. Not the air bag it's self. It's just a part. It takes about 50 mins to replace it. Is there a reason you don't want to have the recall done?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I want recall done and need to use passenger front seat until then
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

It would be fine. It is only a updated part. If it was unsafe, they would tell you not to put anyone in the passenger seat. So I would simply contact your local dealer and make a appointment to have it done.

do you have any more questions on this?

cant sit passenger seat
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

What do you mean you can't sit in the passenger seat?

Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

As I said,If you needed to put someone in the passenger seat, It would be fine. It is only a updated part. If it was unsafe, they would tell you not to put anyone in the passenger seat. The notice does not tell you that it's unsafe. It is simply a updated part.

Do you have any more questions on this?

dealer said not to use passenger seat till repaired
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

They should not say that. That is false. They are making it sound worse than it is. If that was true, the recall letter would state that as well.

I would just have them do the recall, this way you have piece of mind.
