Risk
The front passenger-side inflators could create excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment after long-term exposure to high, absolute humidity environments. In a worst-case scenario, the inflator may rupture, possibly causing injury. Even if the inflator does not rupture, due to the specific design of the front passenger-side airbag module with its integrated inflator, any excessive internal pressure of the inflator could potentially result in an increased risk of airbag-induced injuries in a deployment event.
