1997 E320 with about 180,000 miles in 09. The seat belt on the driver side exploded on my wife will taking off from a stop light.I took it to dealer and was told we hit something, but prior to that the belt was replace. Not even 20 miles later it went off again. We brought it back and exstensive test was done, thats when they said, that we hit something.I took the car there because, the side airbag recall was not done. The side airbag numbers didn't match the new ones in the recall paper work. Also, the revits looked original.I took the panel off so they could see. The tech that looked at it agreed and the told corperate. They wanted me to sign a notorized form saying I would not hold them liable for anything and they would fix it. They said the module was bad. They would not let me pay to fix it.I said, no then yes and made a copy. Then said, no again. If something were to happen after they fix it, they were not liable. My wife got hurt the first time while pregnant. The other side went off later when the two of us were in it. They would not let me know who did the recall, but I found out and called them in Dallas, tx.I, m in Beaumont, tx. The guy there talked tome at first, Then he said the district manager tooked the folder and he could not talk to me.
