BMW Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on January 9, 2018

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 passenger frontal air bag may not function as needed in an accident due to deterioration of the passenger seat occupant detection mat. This mat determines if a passenger is sitting in the front seat, and if so, if it is an adult passenger. If the mat is deteriorated, it may not accurately enable the air bag to protect the occupant.
