JULY 2016

a Pdf FAQ is now included in Discussion Thread Links listed here, see POST# 1.



BOTH SIDED (2) DASHBOARD INFLATORS ARE NOW UNDER TAKATA WORLD RECALL.


Normal Recall procedure is to notify original owners of cars by letter (mail), IF you are the owner of a car
which has changed ownership multiple times then the Mazda Distributor may never know,
the onus is now on you to contact your local Mazda Dealer (or MNAO) with your FULL VIN # and take it from there .....


Yes, we know about the air bag recall. DISCUSSION Thread go here: https://www.rx8club.com/rx-8-discuss...states-244914/

THIS IS NOW A WORLD-WIDE RECALL FOR ALL 2003-2011 RX-8's

Update June 10, 2015.
""GOOD NEWS"" FOR RIGHT HAND DRIVE S1 RX-8's, MAZDA AUSTRALIA HAS JUST ANNOUNCED THAT THE RIGHT HAND INFLATOR IS NOW
PART OF TAKATA RECALL (June 10, 2015), I expect this to include the UK/Asia and all LHD's in Europe. CANADA is also confirmed.


THIS NEW SAFETY RECALL CONFIRMED IN THE FOLLOWING COUNTRIES...
North America (Americas)
Japan
Mexico
Canada
Australia

I SUGGEST THOSE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN CONTACTED BY THEIR LOCAL MAZDA DISTRIBUTOR OR
LOCAL MAZDA DEALER CONCERNING THESE DEFECTIVE DASHBOARD AIR BAGS TO
INITIATE A CONVERSATION AND DEMAND ACTION TO RECALL AND RENEW YOUR Takata INFLATORS.

MAZDA KNOWS MORE THAN MOST THAT THIS RECALL IS A SAFETY ONE, THANKFULLY
NO DEATHS HAVE BEEN RECORDED SO FAR IN ANY MAZDA VEHICLE WORLD-WIDE.

Sadly now 7 (as of June,2015) recorded deaths all in Honda cars and possibly countless injuries in others.

FINAL RECALL 8215F FOR Series 1 RX-8 AIR BAG INFLATORS IS CURRENTLY ACTIVE, ALL EFFECTED CARS/OWNERS SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED RE-CALL LETTERS BY NOW.Click on Discussion link below \/

PLEASE POST ANY OUTCOMES OR NEWS IN THE AIR BAG DISCUSSION THREAD Here>>>.https://www.rx8club.com/rx-8-discuss...-rx-8s-244914/


NEW RECALL DOES NOW INCLUDE ALL SERIES II (R3) 2009-2012 MY RX-8's WORLD-WIDE for Passenger Side ONLY...........
May 27th 2016 UPDATE..


NOTE: For Series II RX-8 the recall ONLY pertains to the PASSENGER Dashboard side Air Bag INFLATOR ONLY, it DOES NOT apply to the Drivers Steering Wheel Air Bag as the S2's had a changed steering wheel design/style (same as what NC2 MX-5 Miata uses) and that DRIVERS side AB Inflator is made by a different company, NOT Takata.

NOTE: Also this TAKATA Inflator Module RECALL for the Passenger Side (Dashboard) DOES NOT include a free replacement of the black vinyl outer Dashboard surface if the famous "H" cracking is visible, with or without such "H" cracking your Air Bag will still function correctly.

http://insidemazda.mazdausa.com/pres...enger-air-bag/

Confirmed for Australia July 12th, 2016.( S1 and S2).

Specific S2 RX-8 Thread here...
https://www.rx8club.com/series-ii-te...recall-262499/

None of the 2016 model year Mazda vehicles contain Takata driver or passenger frontal airbag inflators.
