    I think they took the glove box out. Everything looks fine.

    I received both driver side (R37) & passenger side (S43) middle/late of 2016. Not doing either until I feel comfortable that the replacement parts are quality replacements and I have a better understanding of what each side entails.

    Both were done on my 08, and there was no problem.

    Just received a recall for my SRT. Appears to be an air bag problem. I have to schedule an appointment. What a downer.

    Anyone receive the same recall recently?

    Well got two (Challenger & Ram) notifications in the mail today from TK Holdings Inc where they are filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy. It contains all the info for you to file a claim if you think you have one. The notifications are identical except for a serial number right above the name which are different so I assume it's a tracking number of some sort.

    I have now had both the driver and passenger air bags replaced. Neither one took very long to do and I watched them replace them both. The drivers side was replaced in the steering wheel and the passenger side was under the lower part of the dash. Two different appointments and approximately 1.5 hours each appointment.

    Still have not got my passenger side air bag notice. I was even at the dealer last Friday 10/13 and they said no recalls pending. I have a feeling because we are not in a humid zone they are delayed or not going to happen.

    I am curious as to why the lack of humidity would effect your defective air bag? I wonder if maybe your passenger side is a different model or design?

    Apparently high heat and humidity cause the defect more rapidly or to happen at all, that is what I read when this whole mess started.

    I've gotten both recall notices a while back, just have not had the passenger sides changed. The notice I mentioned above was a bankruptcy notice from the company. It has a December cut off date for filing claims against them.

    Just got them recently. Never got a recall notice for the passenger side airbag on the Challenger and none on the Charger.

    Corbin I just yesterday received the same notice yesterday from the airbag manufacturer. I've received nothing from Dodge. Wouldn't we be notified by FCA?
