Isn't the fix just to apply a dab of glue to it?
It seems the revised version of the recall calls for the dealership to check to see if all of the retaining clips are firmly on the back of the existing airbag emblem. If all the clips are still there, then they just add tape. If any of the clips are loose, or missing, then they replace the whole airbag cover.

This is a little bizarre, so any Nitro subjected to the W09 temporary fix is now at a disadvantage. There will be no clips to check as the badge has been removed. No loose clips probably means no justification for new airbag cover…time to make the phone call to the dealer to check this out, gonna be a pretty unhappy chap by the sound of things.
I'm pretty sure the people that got the temporary fix, of having the badge removed, will be getting brand new airbag covers. I think they only leave your current airbag cover and badge alone, and add tape, is if your current badge is still fully secured, with all three retaining clips.

But don't quote me on it.
