2002 BMW 323 - AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:DRIVER SIDE INFLATOR MODULE

BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2000-2002 325i and 325xi Sedan, and 323Ci, 325Ci, and 330Ci Convertible vehicles. This recall affects certain vehicles that may have had a driver-side air bag module installed as replacement equipment such as after a vehicle crash necessitating replacement of the original air bag, or as a remedy part for a prior recall. The frontal air bag inflator may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity, temperature and temperature cycling.

  • Hazard
    An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
  • Consumer Action
    BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, replace the driver's air bag module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 25, 2019. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417. Note: This recall is an expansion of previous recalls, numbers 17V-047 and 19V-015.
