BMW recalls certain ‘3er’ passenger vehicles

June 24, 2020

BMW Automotive Ireland Limited is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain ‘3er’ passenger vehicles.

The vehicles in question were manufactured between 3 June 1997 and 30 June 2000.

A safety issue has been identified whereby, the vehicles affected may have been fitted with driver airbags in which inadequate sealing on the gas generator could allow the ingress of moisture and thus result in the degradation of the propellant. If the airbag deploys, this could cause the gas generator to burst. Metal parts could then become detached, and this could cause serious or fatal injuries to occupants of the vehicle.

There are approximately 2719 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland.

What to do:

BMW Automotive Ireland Limited will be writing directly to all affected customers advising them to make an appointment with their local dealer/authorised repairer, where any necessary repairs/replacement of parts will be carried out.

If you believe that your vehicle may be impacted by this recall BMW Customer Service may be contacted directly on 1890 719 421, or alternatively through the following web form.
