    I received a letter from Mercedes the the stering wheel air bag is not grounded and could go off at any given time.
    That could cause serious problems. And Mercedes don’t have the parts to prevent it from happening.

    ADMIN – Hi Thelma,

    This settlement unfortunately is not for the air bag. It is for the seat heater.
