Just had mine replaced today. Mercedes Benz, of Eugene, Or. came to Bend, Or for the day at a dealer and spent all day doing air bag recalls. I was lucky to get mine in and avoid a 3+ hour drive each way over the Cascades and back. Took the tech about a 1/2 hour to two the job.

The irony of this is amazing! Like my prior post, I had the driver side airbag recall done last Thursday. Today, Monday, I get another recall from Mercedes saying the passenger side airbag now needs replacing. You'd think that Mercedes wold have this set up so that you could get both airbags replaced at the same time rather than jerking you back and forth. Well, I'm picking up a new Tiffin Class A next week and the Sprinter is getting traded in for it. Someone else can deal with this, rather than me. Come on Mercedes, you guys can do better than this for your customer base, I'd think.

I also received a recall notice about the passenger side airbag today. The letter said parts are not available now and I would be contacted again when parts are available. I have an appointment at my local MB dealer on the 29th for the driver side airbag. I called and spoke with the service scheduler and she said they have no idea when passengeer side parts will be available and said since I have an appointment I should go ahead and have the driver side replaced. She was very apologetic about it. I realize the local MB dealers are at the mercy of MB corporate and the supplier of replacements parts. Like others though, I am frustrated with the idea of taking it to my dealer twice to get all this resolved.

I talked to my MB service advisor today. He said they have not even made the parts for the passenger side airbags and told me to check back in 2 months. They have the parts for the driver side, but I plan to opt to go in when both can be done in one trip.

Even though I have an appointment in about a week to get the driver side airbag recall done, I'm considering waiting until I can get both done in one trip to the dealer. It's like playing the odds... I've been driving with defective airbags for a couple of years. As long as they don't inflate there's no danger of being mauled or killed by the shrapnel in the defective airbags, right?
