BMW Recalls E39 E53 models

February 13, 2019

BMW Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of BMW E39 and E53 models.

The safety recall involves the Takata driver front airbag with a PSDI-4 inflator containing non-desiccated ammonium nitrate and that were not covered by the worldwide safety recalls released in 2015 and 2017. According to Takata, 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.

This recall affects 1558 vehicles in Ireland.

What to do:

BMW Ireland will be writing directly to those customers affected in this recall to arrange to have the affected parts in their vehicles replaced.

The letter will advise consumers affected by this voluntary recall to contact their nearest BMW Dealer/Authorised Repairer who will arrange to do the repair free of charge. BMW Ireland can be contacted on: 1890 719 421
