2007 BMW X5 Recalls
The fuel pump mounted inside the fuel tank may have wire contacts not sufficiently crimped. This could result in a fuel leak and vehicle stalling condition. This could increase risk of a fire hazard and crash.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
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.
X5 Vehicles with an 8 cylinder engine are being recalled because power assistance for the braking system could be lost unexpectedly.
The engine may stall in weather below freezing combined with low humidity. If the engine stalls, the driver may not be able to maintain speed or accelerate, and the power steering could fail, increasing the risk of a crash.
There may be a problem with the brake fluid reservoir cap that causes the brake warning lamp not to work when brake fluid is low. If this happens, a loss of the hydraulic brake system may cause increased stopping distances, which could result in a crash.
