Default Takata airbag recall: Is your car on the list?

Hi guys, not sure if this is common knowledge, but this is the biggest recall in history. Just about all D22's are on the list, and a few D40's.
Just rang Nissan, my car was not in the list.

Apparently they have already filed for bankruptcy, so there's doubt as to whether the recall will be completed...

That doesn't help if they can't get replacement parts....

Anyone with Thai D40's had theres replaced? I have been reading now that some have been replaced with Takata units that may give the same problem. No bloody good if they replace the same unit with new of same type.
I would rather disarm the thing. Is there a way of doing this? Better no Air bag (if ilegal) than one that will decapitate you.
Would the Spanish built version of what ever they use be able to fitted to the Thai built trucks?

I've had mine out (Spanish, but same principle because the units are near identical). If you unplug the yellow plug from the airbag (black cable from the clock spring to the air bag) it won't be able to arm itself. There's a small plastic retaining clip you have to lift to unlock the plug, then pop the plug out. Airbag disarmed.

The drawback is that the airbag light on the dash will blink forever unless you put in an "Airbag Simulator" like this (cheap, too!). Or even cheaper still is black insulation tape over the spot where the light flashes, although that will cause the ECU to know the airbag's missing.
