Ram 1500 8-cyl

Airbag malfunctioned after a front passenger side collision. Airbag did not deploy, instead the entire airbag housing unit came unbolted from the steering wheel, became a projectile, struck driver and damaged steering wheel. Airbag unit, steering wheel, spring, and cruise control arm were replaced. Dealership kept faulty parts for inspection.
