Takata Airbag Recall MB

I am sure most of you have heard by now of the MB recall on Takata airbags. If not you can read about it here: Mercedes-Benz Recalls 841,000 Vehicles for Takata Airbags - News - Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog

It may be too early to know but has anyone heard of what airbag or airbags need replacing? Depending on make and model I have seen reports of just the driver as well as both driver and passenger airbags. I don't think side curtain airbags have fallen into any of the recalls. Hoping it is just the driver as it should be a relatively quick service call but if the passenger or any other of the airbags need replacing then that will extend the time it takes to service the car quite a bit.

Mercedes aren't for people who want to have one, it's for people who can have one.

Thanks Pete.

I will be calling my friend that is the SM at the dealer I purchased the MLs from. My MLs are not affected, but it looks like my 2005 E class might be part of the campaign.

If I get a letter I will scan it and post it.
