The screw connection from the passenger’s airbag to the instrument panel may not have been manufactured according to specifications.
As a result, if the airbag is activated, the panel cover may break into pieces, which will be propelled against the passenger increasing the risk of injury.
The BMW X3 and X3M models affected by this recall were manufactured between 19. 4. 2017 – 1. 11. 2019.
