Air Bag Inflators May Rupture or Underinflate Bag – 1999 BMW 3-Series

November 26, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19V851000

Air Bag Inflators May Rupture or Underinflate Bag

In the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, an inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants. An underinflated air bag may not properly protect the occupant. These scenarios increase the risk of serious injury or death.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V851

Manufacturer BMW of North America, LLC

Components AIR BAGS

Potential Number of Units Affected 7,910

 

Summary

BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 1999 323i and 328i vehicles equipped with Non-Azide Driver air bag Inflators (NADI) manufactured by Takata at one specific inflator production facility. These inflators do not contain phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant. Due to a manufacturing issue, the NADI inflators may absorb moisture, causing the inflators to rupture or the air bag cushion to underinflate.

 

Remedy

Dealers will inspect the driver air bag inflators and replace them, as necessary, free of charge. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417. Note: BMW recommends that owners do not continue to drive their vehicles.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

What’s New (Specific text highlighted):

  • Procedure Section – Chart clarified; more examples added

Please perform the procedure outlined in this Service Information on all affected vehicles before customer delivery. In the event the customer has already taken delivery of the vehicle, please perform the procedure the next time the vehicle is in the shop.

 

MODEL

E-Series Model Description Production Date
E46 3 Series Sedan July 2, 1998 – January 5, 1999

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Vehicles which require this Recall Campaign to be completed will show it as “Open” when checked either in AIR, the “Service Menu” of DCSnet (Dealer Communication System), ISPA Next or Warranty Vehicle Inquiry.

 

SITUATION

BMW AG is conducting a Voluntary Safety Recall (effective December 4, 2019) on certain Model Year 1999 BMW 3 Series vehicles that were produced between July 1998 and January 1999.  Please see attached Recall Notice and Q&A for further information.

This recall campaign involves vehicles equipped with the single-stage Takata Non Azide (NADI) Driver gas generator/Inflator.  There are three separate recalls involving the NADI units.

Recall ID SIB No. Recall Description
19V-851 B65 23 19 Driver’s Front Air Bag (NADI) Inflator -STOP DRIVE
19V-852 B65 24 19 Driver’s Front Air Bag (NADI) Inflator
19V-853 B65 25 19 Driver’s Front Air Bag (NADI) Inflator -Spare Parts

 

Customers potentially affected by the STOP DRIVE recall will be instructed not to drive the vehicle until the repair is completed.  The stop drive only pertains to the vehicles identified in this bulletin. 

If a customer calls in to schedule a repair, please redirect them to 1-800-805-9230 (9:30 – 6:00 CST Central Standard Time, Monday through Friday) to arrange for towing and to set up an appointment.

The vehicles that are affected by the STOP DRIVE will be towed to BMW centers for repair. 

 

OTHER AIR BAG-RELATED FAULTS AND REPAIRS

This Recall applies to an operational driver’s front air bag. The issue addressed will not cause an air bag (SRS) malfunction light to illuminate. It will also not prevent the system from deploying in a front-end collision.

However, a recalled vehicle can arrive at your center with an air bag malfunction light illuminated.

It is important to notify the customer that diagnosing other air bag-related system issues may be required and this diagnosis and corresponding repair work, if needed, is not covered by this Recall.

In this case, replacing the driver’s front air bag gas generator will not correct the other fault code(s).

 

CAUSE

The single-stage Takata Non-Azide (NADI) Driver gas generator, also known as an air bag inflator, may have been produced with an insufficient seal that could allow moisture to enter the gas generator. The gas generator is a separately replaceable part of the air bag module.

 

CORRECTION

The current installed air bag gas generator must be inspected.

The serial number on the installed air bag gas generator must be compared to the serial number list in the procedure section to determine if the gas generator needs to be replaced.

If the vehicle has a Category 1 or Category 2 air bag gas generator installed, then proceed with air bag gas generator replacement.

 

In the following cases, the gas generator replacement should not be performed. Instead, the complete air bag assembly must be replaced:

Threaded bolts are damaged

Threaded bolts are bent or corroded

The generator cannot be removed from the air bag without excess force

If the target tightening torque of the nuts cannot be achieved (5 Nm in a star pattern sequence)

If there is a gap between the generator & air bag that is not closed up when tightening the nuts

If there is damage to the air bag cover that may impede deployment of the air bag

If a complete air bag assembly is required, parts are not currently available.  Please contact BMW Customer Relations at 1-800-525-7417 for further support.

 

PROCEDURE

Follow all safety precautions when handling air bags.

 

Remove Basic Drivers air bag as per

 

REP 32 34 020 “Removing and installing/replacing airbag unit”

 

OR

 

Remove Sports Drivers air bag as per REP 32 34 020 “Removing and installing/replacing the airbag unit (sports steering wheel, inserted airbag unit)”

 

Once the air bag is removed and the wiring is disconnected, turn the air bag over to read the parts label(s) on the gas generator on the back.

Driver’s Front Air Bag Inflator (NADI)
Model Year 1999 BMW 3 Series
Safety Recall 19V-851
Date Issued: 4/17/2019

 

Q1. Which models are included in this Safety Recall Campaign?

Certain Model Year 1999 BMW 3 Series Sedans (323i, 328i) (E46), produced from July 1998 through January 1999 are potentially affected.

 

Q2. Which inflator is affected?

This recall campaign involves vehicles equipped with the single-stage Takata Non Azide Driver Inflator (NADI).

 

Q3. What is the specific concern?

A population of NADI inflators manufactured prior to March 15, 1999 may have been produced with an insufficient seal which could allow moisture to enter the inflator.

 

Q4. What can happen as a result of this issue?

In a crash where the driver air bag deploys, it may not deploy with sufficient restraint capability which could increase the risk of injury. It is also possible that the air bag housing may explode and could cause metal fragments to pass through the air bag cushion material, which may result in injury or death to the driver and/or other vehicle occupants.

 

Q5. Can I continue to drive my vehicle?

No. Potentially affected vehicles are not to be driven. If you are not the only driver of this vehicle, please advise all other drivers of this important information.  Please call 1-800-805-9230 so we can help arrange for the vehicle to be repaired.

 

Q6. Why are other BMW models not included?

Other vehicles have driver front air bags that were produced with different inflators.

 

Q7. What is the fix?

The inflator will be inspected and if necessary, replaced.

 

Q8. How will I be notified of this recall?

Initial letters were sent out in December 2019 via First Class mail, advising customers of this recall. Follow-up letters asking vehicle owners to schedule their vehicle for repair will start to be mailed in May 2020. To ensure BMW of North America, LLC has your most recent contact and vehicle information, please register your vehicle at https://www.bmwusa.com/myBMW. Registration is free, and will give you access to factory initiated campaigns and other information specific to your BMW vehicle.

 

Q9. Do I have to wait for my letter in order to have my vehicle repaired?

No.  Please call 1-800-805-9230 so we can help arrange for the vehicle to be repaired.

 

Q10. Is it possible to find out whether the problem exists in my car? 

No. There is no way to detect if your BMW might have an air bag inflator potentially at risk of rupturing upon deployment in an accident.

 

Q11. How did BMW become aware of this issue?

BMW became aware of this issue through its quality control procedures.

 

Q12. I did not receive a letter from BMW regarding my vehicle. How can I find out if my BMW is included in this recall?

You can enter your vehicle identification number (VIN) at www.bmwusa.com/recall and download a sample owner notification letter and Q&A if your VIN is affected. Make sure to update your contact information by registering at https://www.bmwusa.com/myBMW.

 

Q13. What if I am not the current owner of this vehicle?

If you changed your address or sold the vehicle, you can let us know by visiting https://www.bmwusa.com/mybmw or by contacting BMW Customer Relations.

 

Q14. Am I eligible for reimbursement under the TREAD Act if I previously replaced my driver’s front air bag module?

In this particular recall, reimbursement is likely not applicable, as you would typically have replaced your driver front air bag module as a result of an accident. In that situation, most likely your insurance company paid for the repair. However, in the very unusual (unlikely) scenario that you previously paid to replace the front air bag module “out-ofpocket” upon learning of this possible defect, you may be eligible for reimbursement. Additional information is provided when BMW mails the letter asking you to make an appointment with an authorized BMW center.

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL

This notice applies to your vehicle,

Recall Campaign No. 19V-851:  Driver’s Air Bag Inflator (NADI)

 

December 2019

Dear BMW Owner / Lessee:

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. BMW AG has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain Model Year 1999 BMW 3 Series vehicles. Our records indicate that you are the owner of a potentially affected vehicle. 

 

Why are we contacting you?

We recommend that owners do not continue to drive their vehicles. If you are not the only driver of this vehicle, please advise all other drivers and passengers of this important information.   Please call 1-800-805-9230 to discuss the options available for this recall.

 

What could happen?

Your vehicle may be equipped with an airbag inflator that may absorb moisture.  In a crash where the driver air bag deploys, it may under-inflate, which could increase the risk of injury. It is also possible that the air bag housing may explode and could cause metal fragments to pass through the air bag cushion material, striking the driver or other occupants which may result in injury or death.

 

What if I am not the current owner of this vehicle?If you are a vehicle lessor, Federal Regulations require you to forward this notice to your lessee within ten days. You can update the vehicle ownership or your contact information by filling out the enclosed postage-paid card or by registering at https://www.bmwusa.com/myBMW.

 

What if I have questions or experience problems?

For the latest updates to this recall, please visit www.bmwusa.com/recall. Should you have any questions about this recall, please call 1-800-805-9230.

If your BMW center is unable to remedy the defect without charge or within a reasonable period of time, you may notify the Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Ave., S.E., Washington, DC 20590, call the toll-free Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to https://www.safercar.gov.

Please be assured that your safety is important to us and we sincerely apologize if this recall causes any inconvenience. We recommend that you and your passengers wear your seat belt at all times. Sincerely,

¿Qué podría suceder?

Es posible que su vehículo cuente con un inflador de la bolsa de aire que posiblemente absorba humedad.  Si se viera involucrado en una colisión en la que se active la bolsa de aire, es posible que no se infle lo suficiente, con lo cual podría aumentar el riesgo a sufrir lesiones. También es posible que el módulo que contiene la bolsa de aire explote y permita que pasen fragmentos de metal por la bolsa, que podrían llegar al conductor u otros ocupantes del vehículo, ocasionando lesiones o incluso la muerte.    

 

¿Y si no soy el dueño actual del vehículo?

Usted podría actualizar sus datos de contacto o información sobre vehículos de su propiedad completando la tarjeta adjunta prefranqueada o registrándose en https://www.bmwusa.com/myBMW.

¿Qué debo hacer si tengo preguntas o experimento un problema?

Para información más actualizada sobre este llamado, visite www.bmwusa.com/recall. Si tiene cualquier pregunta sobre este llamado a revisión, llame al 1-800-805-9230.

Si su centro BMW no pudiera solucionar este defecto en forma gratuita o dentro de un plazo razonable, notifique a la Administración Nacional de Seguridad Vial escribiendo a: Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Ave., S.E., Washington, DC 20590, o llamando al número gratuito de la línea directa para seguridad vehicular al 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), o visitando el sitio https://www.safercar.gov.
