The ground connection of the passenger airbag may be inadequate and any electrostatic charge might not be conducted away through it.
As a result, the passenger airbag could be triggered unnecessarily even if it has been properly deactivated because a child seat is being used on the passenger seat. This could lead to an increased risk of accident or injury.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA models affected by this recall were manufactured between 19 February 2020 and 12 August 2020.
