2006 BMW 330i 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.
Certain vehicles are being recalled because the passenger airbag inflator may rupture upon deployment. Vehicle occupants could be struck by metal fragments resulting in personal injury.
Owners of affected vehicles will receive an interim notice during August for 2014. Parts are not expected to be available until October 2014. If you don't receive notification in a timely manner and believe you should have, please contact your BMW dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call.
In the event of a crash, the front passenger airbag may not deploy as expected.
BMW will notify owners during January 2014. However, remedy parts are not yet available. A second notification will be sent when parts become available, this is expected to occur during March 2014. If you don't receive notification and you feel you should, please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call.
On 25 vehicles, a bolt was not tightened to specification and could loosen over time. If the bolt loosens and breaks at the connection, vehicle handling and control could be compromised, increasing the risk of a crash.
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.
