Statement: Air bag Tape



April 23, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 2,408 vans in the U.S. to remove a section of tape from their side-curtain air bags.

FCA US engineers conducted a routine test to evaluate component function and discovered the tape, which helps accommodate air-bag installation during vehicle assembly, may prevent the devices from deploying fully. The Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents or customer complaints.

Affected are certain model-year 2015 Ram ProMaster City cargo and passenger vans; an additional 1,504 are in Canada.

Dealers will remove the tape at no cost to customers. Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service.

Customers with questions may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.
