BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited t/a BMW Ireland recalls certain 3-Series and 5-Series passenger vehicles

October 18, 2019

BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited t/a BMW Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of ‘3-Series’ and ‘5-Series’ vehicles. The vehicles in question are manufactured between April 07, 1999 – December 10, 2003. There are 194 vehicles affected in the Irish Market.

The safety recall involves the Takata driver front airbag with PSDI-4 inflator. BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited t/a BMW Ireland has established that a possible degradation of the propellant tablets and wafers could lead to an over-aggressive combustion in the event the airbag is activated which may cause the inflator body to rupture. An inflator rupture may cause metal fragments to pass through the airbag and into the vehicle interior at high speed, which could cause fatal injuries as a result.


What to do:

BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited t/a BMW Ireland will contact vehicle owners and the driver front airbag modules of affected vehicles will be checked and if necessary replaced.

If you believe that your vehicle may be impacted by this recall, then you can contact BMW’s customer care on 1890 719 421 or by email.
