The problem: General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2022 model year Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV vehicles. One of the two fasteners that secure the driver frontal airbag to the steering wheel may be missing or improperly torqued.
The hazards: if all airbag fasteners are not properly installed, the airbag may not properly deploy, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
The fix: dealers will inspect the driver airbag fasteners, replace any missing fasteners and assure that both fasteners are properly installed. If proper torque can not be achieved, the driver airbag assembly will be replaced.
Affected components: driver frontal airbag.
Owners should: GM will notify owners of affected vehicles and instruct them to make an appointment with their dealer. Interim notification letters will be mailed out on August 16, 2021. Owners will then receive a second notice when a repair is available. If owners are unsure whether or not their vehicle is affected by this recall, they can visit my.gm.com/
