The petitioner also contends that the subject non-U.S. certified vehicles are capable of being readily altered to meet the following standards, in the manner indicated: Standard No. 101 Controls and Displays: The speedometer must be reprogrammed to read in miles per hour (mph) and all other applicable control, telltale and indicator symbols will be inspected, and if necessary, modified to meet the requirements of the standard. Standard No. 108 Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment: Replacement of the front and rear side marker lamp, and headlamp assemblies with U.S.-conforming components. Standard No. 110 Tire Selection and Rims: Installation of the required tire information placard. Standard No. 111 Rearview Mirrors: Inscription of the required warning statement on the face of the passenger side rearview mirror. Standard No. 138 Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems: Installation of U.S. model tire pressure monitoring system hardware and software components.

Standard No. 301 Fuel System Integrity: Fuel system components will be inspected and any non-U.S. model components will be replaced with U.S. model components. Standard No. 401 Interior Trunk Release: Installation of U.S. model interior trunk release components. The petitioner additionally states that a vehicle identification plate must be affixed to the vehicle near the left windshield pillar to meet the requirements of 49 CFR part 565. Because the subject petition covers nonconforming vehicles that have been manufactured on or after September 1, 2006, compliance with the advanced air bag requirements of FMVSS No. 208 is of significant concern to the agency. NHTSA is therefore particularly interested in comments regarding the ability of a Registered Importer to readily alter the subject vehicles to fully meet the driver and front outboard passenger frontal crash protection and child passenger protection requirements of FMVSS No. 208. The following is a VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:36 May 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 partial listing of the components that may be affected: a. Driver’s frontal air bag module b. Passenger frontal air bag module c.
