TSB Document:

Affected Component: AIR BAGS

Summary
CERTAIN ACURA VEHICLES OPERATED IN AREAS KNOWN FOR HIGH ABSOLUTE HUMIDITY MAY CONTAIN A FRONT PASSENGER’S AIRBAG THAT, OVER TIME, MAY BE AFFECTED BY EXPOSURE TO THE HUMIDITY, WHICH COULD PRODUCE EXCESSIVE INTERNAL PRESSURE UPON DEPLOYMENT. IF AN AFFECTED AIRBAG DEPLOYS, THE INCREASED INTERNAL PRESSURE MAY CAUSE THE INFLATOR CASING TO RUPTURE. METAL FRAGMENTS COULD BE PROPELLED UPWARD TOWARD THE WINDSHIELD, OR DOWNWARD TOWARD THE FRONT PASSENGER’S FOOT WELL, POSSIBLY CAUSING AN INJURY TO VEHICLE OCCUPANTS.
