PARTS ORDERING

Dealer New Inventory Stock Units

We will begin automatic shipping of airbags to dealers, for non-retailed vehicles, beginning April 18, 2006. These initial shipments will be entered as CSO orders and should arrive at dealerships by April 20-21, 2006. The CSO handling charge will be waived. Once these initial shipments are received, additional airbags for in-stock vehicles can be ordered via the e-mail form on the DAG website. A VIN number will be required for each airbag order.

Retailed Units

Airbags for retailed vehicles will not be pre-shipped to dealers. They will be available for ordering beginning Monday May 01, 2006. All airbags required for retailed vehicles will need to be ordered via the e-mail order form, found on the DAG website. A VIN number will be required for each airbag order.

Due to HAZMAT requirements, these airbags will be shipped as SSO / stock orders. If there is a need for an expedited shipment, this information needs to be included on the DAG e-mail form.

AIR BAG RETURN PROCEDURE

Properly return defective air bags to your facing PDC.
