Cross Member Corrosion recall SR-16-003

Hello Forum, new 2005 MR owner here. Contacted dealer regarding airbag replacement (had never been done/car in storage) to learn that there is a recall for cross member corrosion. I do not suspect this car has an issue, but not happy that the procedure calls for drilling holes in the current cross member to inspect. Was also informed that if the car "fails" inspection that they will keep it until it can be repaired.

I tend to avoid dealers like the plague and wonder what others experience is with this recall. Should I be worried?

Anyone just deactivate the passenger side airbag and call it good?

Hi Mike / Welcome

If you search " CrossMember " & Cross Member w/a space, there are a few threads discussing the recall.

Regarding the air bag recall, yes we have explored all the options, here on the boards

I disconnected mine for approx 5 years & my Wife convinced me to finally get it done

Luckily we have a solid dealership who had a lot of experience w/this. The whole dash has to come out

They did a great job!!
