2008 BMW 128i Recalls
The inflator that deploys the driver's frontal air bag in the event of an accident may rupture and spray metal fragments onto vehicle occupants. This can increase risk of serious injury or death.
Recalls on your BMW must be performed by a BMW dealership. BMW will begin notifying owners of affected vehicles in March, 2016, but repair parts will not be immediately available. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local BMW dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
Vehicle electrical power may be lost due to a faulty battery cable connection.
BMW will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning March, 2013. Various electrical concerns could develop or there could be no symptoms related to this recall. If don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It's helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) when you call.
The seat belt buckles in your car have a small explosive device within them. In a collision, an explosion occurs at each front buckle, which causes the buckle to pull at the seat belt in order to secure the passenger from injury. Near your seat belt buckles is some sound insulation. This insulation could ignite on fire if the pretensioner activates.
We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall. Please contact your BMW dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
