Citroen and Peugeot airbag fault prompts UK recall

By Peter Chubb - Jul 26, 2016

We have reported a number of times about faulty airbag inflators, although these were for Takata, and the numbers were very high indeed. However, this latest one is nothing to do with those, although is still a cause for concern with affected owners.

Both Citroen and Peugeot have found an airbag fault that has prompted them to recall certain models in the UK, but thankfully there have been no reports of any injuries.

Peugeot recalls Partner and Expert III

The affected models are the Peugeot Partner III and Expert III, along with the C5, Berlingo III and Jumpy III. In terms of numbers, the former is recalling 797 units, whereas the latter is to recall 967 vehicles.

The reason for these recalls is for the same issue, and that is a faulty inflation device that may not allow the airbag to deploy correctly during an impact.

More details on this recall can be found on Car Recalls from the two links above.
