Manufacturer: Chrysler Group LLC
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.

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.

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.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
