Jeep Recall on Shattering Clockspring?

A while ago my mechanic noticed that I was getting an intermittent airbag indicator and told me that there was a recall on it from Jeep since the clock-spring failed. Is this true, or is it an out of pocket expense of my own?

I saw a couple recalls on passenger airbags... best thing to do is call Jeep with your VIN and they can tell you all recalls that apply

I found the recall information here: http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Owners/

Here's what it says:
CHRYSLER IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008-2012 RIGHT HAND DRIVE (RHD) JEEP WRANGLER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM FEBRUARY 1, 2007, THROUGH OCTOBER 10, 2011. SOME VEHICLES MAY BE EQUIPPED WITH DRIVER'S AIRBAG CLOCKSPRING ASSEMBLIES THAT COULD EXPERIENCE A COMPROMISED AIRBAG CIRCUIT RESULTING IN AN AIRBAG LAMP ILLUMINATION, WHICH INDICATES THAT THE AIRBAG MAY NOT DEPLOY.

CONSEQUENCE:
A BROKEN ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT IN THE AIRBAG CLOCKSPRING WIRING ASSEMBLY CAN LEAD TO NON-DEPLOYMENT OF THE DRIVER FRONTAL AIRBAG AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PROPERLY PROTECT THE DRIVER IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURIES.

REMEDY:
CHRYSLER WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND REMEDY THE VEHICLES AS NECESSARY FREE OF CHARGE. CHRYSLER WILL MAIL TO OWNERS AN INTERIM NOTIFICATION DURING MARCH 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403.

NOTES:
CHRYSLER'S RECALL NUMBER IS L37. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236

There is an online complaint form that I encourage everyone to complete so that we can convince them that the recall needs to include more than just "CERTAIN MODEL YEAR" Wranglers that they have currently identified. There is obviously a larger number of Jeeps effected than what they are willing to admit.

Here's the link to the form: https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/Vehicl...nt/index.xhtml
