BOTH SIDE (2) of 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 .....

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

"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 over 20 recorded deaths mostly in Honda cars and countless serious injuries in others.
An Australian Toyota RAV4 Driver was permanently injured when the Takata AB Module steel cap piece went through Air Bag cushion then her left eye, permanently destroying her eye and she also sustained permanent brain injury with paralysis @ only 22 years of age.

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.

NEW RECALL DOES NOW INCLUDE ALL SERIES II (R3) 2009-2012 MY RX-8's WORLDWIDE 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 "H" cracking is visible, with or without such "H" cracking your Air Bag will still function correctly.

HERE ARE THE MAZDA PART NUMBERS FOR THE MODIFIED FOR RECALL ''TAKATA MADE'' RX-8 AIR BAG INFLATORS..
PASSENGER SIDE INFLATORS ARE THE SAME FOR ALL SERIES INCLUDING LEFT AND RIGHT HAND DRIVE MODELS, FOR S1 AND S2 P/n F1Z1-57-K80.


FOR SERIES 1 ONLY, THE DRIVERS (STEERING WHEEL) INFLATOR FOR LEFT AND RIGHT HAND DRIVE IS............... P/n F1Y1-57-K00

A Specific Thread for all S2 RX-8's in this Link...
https://www.rx8club.com/series-ii-te...recall-262499/

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