Recall 17V062000

Front Passenger Air Bag Does Not Deploy Properly

Recall Details

The instrument panel may prevent proper deployment of the passenger frontal air bag in an accident. Dealers will replace the instrument panel free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The passenger frontal air bag may not deploy properly due to the instrument panel restricting properly deployment. This would increase risk of injury to occupants in an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your BMW must be performed by a BMW dealership. BMW will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is not available as of the time of this writing). 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 incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
