    Thought I'd just give this a bump as when I rang for my sump they told me about the recall, mines being looked at in a couple of weeks.

    Just received my recall letter for the '03, kinda ironic its demise was down to issues with the air bag system right?

    honda-accord-airbag-recall-letter-1. honda-accord-airbag-recall-letter-2. honda-accord-airbag-recall-letter-3. honda-accord-airbag-recall-letter-4.

    If anyone else is in a similar situation, make sure to reply to Honda and let them know the vehicle is scrapped (or in the process like mine) so they can keep their figures correct.

    Well, realistically I could shove any K-Series engine into her and get her back onto the road if it were worth it.

    Two of our Facebook group members are now booked in as well. Guys with Pre-Facelift Accords, ring your dealer and ask if the recall applies to your car - no harm in asking.

    I've been checking the Honda Owners section online since this first came out. Still nothing.
    I think a call to the dealer will be the next step, as you suggested @DeviateDefiant

    I found out when I rang up with my reg. number for my sump, I'm still waiting for the phone call to come in as they're waiting for the airbag to arrive.

    That's good to read @NottsBiker.
    Still no sign of mine being called up though.
