Exactly as stated on the letter I posted here previously from Japan VIN check link which quoted that ". there is an arrangement for parts." So waiting

Extracts from the March 2020 Recall Notice:

Quote:
MMNA is making every effort to establish a remedy and will contact you again by mail with a follow-up recall notice when a remedy becomes available.

What you should do:

Once you receive your follow-up notice in the mail advising that a remedy is available, simply contact your local Authorized Mitsubishi dealer and schedule an appointment to have the repair performed, free of charge.

Also:

If you have already encountered a problem with the NADI Inflator and had it replaced as a result of this specific condition and have paid for the repair, you may send your original repair order or invoice, and original receipt/proof of payment to the following address for reimbursement consideration:

So, MMNA are making a fix.

MMA should too!

If I ever have to go in and actually discuss the recall, Iím taking this letter!

The following is from a discussion about Nadi airbag recalls on an American site and I just about spat my coffee out when I read it. It's a gem!

Hmmm…this worries me, I have two cars with 34 year old first-generation airbags. May be worse than nothing.

Or not, your mechanic may have stolen them years ago and replaced them with a resistor.

Wow, that really happens? We should have a massive inquiry, hunt them down, leave no stone unturned ........and thank them for their foresightedness :-D
---------------------------------------------------------------
On a more serious note BMW in the UK have started buying back 97 - 99 BMW's with nadi-5at inflators (bam-pt1-0593) and there are many 10s of thousand of them in the UK.
Here is a comment from an owner:
" 12 March 2020
I was told by BMW that I was the first to take my car in re this recall. I was naturally very surprised as my 1998 318i was in its 22nd year. The outcome was that BMW have offered to buy back the car for a price a little over the market price. They also provided a hire car for 10 days while I found another car, and they have given my new car a health check which was very useful. As far as I understand it, the first cars to suffer from the problem were the facelift models introduced at the end of 1998. Ours was the first of these in the area being manufactured in November 1998. I understood the problem was that the airbag was liable to go off for little or no reason - but I might be wrong on this.
Altogether BMW have been pretty fair regarding this. The car was pretty old, but being the last car my parents owned was quite an heirloom. P Jackson Huddersfield"

--------------------------------------------
As far as the USA goes nowhere have they categorically said they will get replacement airbags, just that they will "Make every effort to establish a remedy and will contact you again by mail with a follow-up recall notice when a remedy becomes available."
I have got a "very" funny feeling that their "remedy" will be a buy back

Been waiting 6 weeks now.

Was told last Thursday a case manager has been allocated. Was told Tuesday morning, Wednesday morning and this morning that the case manager would call me back same day.

Haven't heard anything. Getting seriously pissed off at this point.

The NL and NM air bag assemblies are the same, but not interchangeable because they use a different mounting system. However the inflator is (almost) . They use a different plug and wiring system, both a 2 wire but not matching. The NL plugs directly to the inflator and the NM uses a patch lead so you will need the skills and kahunas to patch in an aftermarket 2 pin plug.
If anyone can help me out with the wiring diagram for both the NL and NM and PM me I would be much appreciated and pass on anything I have learnt.
Push comes to shove I gave a 50/50 chance of getting it right.
