2009 BMW X5 xDrive 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.
Vehicles equipped with a diesel engine could experience a dead battery condition or possible electrical fire.
X5 Vehicles with an 8 cylinder engine are being recalled because power assistance for the braking system could be lost unexpectedly.
On X5 models equipped with a diesel engine, the vehicle may unexpectedly lose power steering due to an engine drive belt issue.
The diesel fuel heater could turn on and stay on, resulting in a dead battery and/or the unit overheating.
