Problem Description

The housing of the driver’s front airbag inflator may have been incorrectly welded. In the event of a crash with airbag activation, the inflator may consequently rupture. Metal fragments created as a result could pass through the airbag, causing fatal injuries to the vehicle occupants.

The recall concerns vehicles produced between July 2011 and November 2012.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you’ll need the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for your car – this is a 17 characters code that appears on the chassis plate of your car or – on most UK-registered cars – in the bottom-left corner of your windscreen.

You should make contact with a BMW dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details. Usually that’ll be your nearest franchised dealership, or ‘main dealer’ as they’re sometimes known.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering your car registration number; it will also reveal your car’s current MOT status.

This notification is purely informative for the vehicle type you have selected. As these deficiencies often relate to specific components (engine type, bodywork, equipment), the recall may not apply to all vehicles of this type.
