SUMMARY:
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 Jeep Wrangler right-hand drive vehicles manufactured February 1, 2007, through October 10, 2011. The affected vehicles have airbag clock spring assemblies that could experience broken airbag circuits.

CONSEQUENCE:
In the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, a broken electrical circuit in the airbag clock spring wiring assembly can lead to non-deployment of the driver-side frontal airbag and will not be able to properly protect the driver, increasing the risk of injuries.

REMEDY:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the clock spring and add a steering wheel dust shield, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. This recall supersedes NHTSA recall 11V-528. Chrysler's recall campaign number is M31.
