Description of the defect and cause

Some of the subject inflators installed in frontal passenger air bag could potentially create excessive internal pressure when the air bag is deployment, which could result in the body of the inflator rupturing upon deployment. In the event of the inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion metal, which may result in injury to vehicle occupants.

Mazda dealers replace the passenger side air bag inflator with modified parts.
