AFFECTED VEHICLES

Vehicles which require this Recall Campaign were included in an earlier Takata recall and received an interim remedy. The affected vehicles amd will show 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 January 16, 2020) on certain Model Year 2007 – 2014 BMW vehicles that were produced between September 27, 2006 and June 25, 2014.

This recall is for vehicles which have already had the air bag gas generator replaced as part of a previous interim remedy recall repair. With this recall repair, we are installing the final remedy part.

 

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 module will not correct the other fault code(s).

 

CAUSE

After long-term exposure in areas with a high level of humidity, moisture may enter the housing of the gas generator on the driver’s front air bag.

  • In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front driver’s air bag, the moisture may create excessive internal pressure, possibly causing rupture of the air bag inflator and resulting in metal fragments striking and injuring the driver or other passengers

 

CORRECTION

Replace the driver’s front air bag gas generator assembly.

In the following cases the inflator/gas generator replacement should not be done. 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
  • 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

 

PROCEDURE

Please record exterior cosmetic condition of air bag assembly on the Repair Order prior to any repair.

Follow ISTA Repair Instructions for removal/installation of air bag assembly:

REP 32 34 020 – “Removing and installing/replacing air bag unit”; or

REP 32 34 030 – “Removing and installing/replacing air bag unit (sport steering wheel)”

The only parts allowed to be installed for this repair are the part numbers that are supplied in the PARTS INFORMATION section.

In addition to the repair instructions and to assist you in performing this repair, refer to a stepby-step video at the bottom of this bulletin.

Warning! Incorrect handling may result in triggering of the air bag module and thereby cause serious injury.

  • Comply with safety regulations for handling components with gas generators.
  • Do not exert any force on the air bag module.
  • Use only specified tools for releasing the air bag module.

It is necessary to document which gas generator goes into which vehicle. Therefore, the technician is required to note on the repair order the serial number of the new gas generator. The serial number should also be entered into the warranty claims comment section. The serial number can be found on the gas generator below the barcode.

Serial Number location (1).
The attached checklist must be followed. A second technician is required to perform a visual check of the air bag cavity to ensure there are no foreign objects. The second technician should also confirm the air bag nuts are torqued properly.

Both technicians must sign the completed checklist and attach it to the repair order.

For E72 Hybrid Vehicles; only properly trained personnel, who have passed all applicable technical training courses, should perform any maintenance or repairs on any Hybrid or Electric Vehicle. Work performed by unqualified persons may result in severe injury or damage to the vehicle. Additional information may be found in REP 61 00… Observe safety instructions when handling electric vehicles.

The new Repair Kit gas generator P/N 32 30 6 888 429 is installed utilizing a new jumper wiring harness that is installed between the generator and the steering wheel assembly.

Note: This harness MUST BE USED with this generator!

 

LABELS

Included in the box with the gas generator should be two self-adhesive labels that can be used in the warranty claims section and attached to the air bag.

If either of the labels are missing, please do the following:

  • Hand write the new gas generator serial number into the warranty comments section of your claim.
  • Hand write the new gas generator serial number onto a label and affix to air bag assembly

If the entire air bag is replaced instead of just the gas generator, we will need the serial number on the label on the side of the air bag. This is the longest number usually on the bottom of the label.

 

PARTS INFORMATION

Only use and invoice the part numbers below that apply.

Performing a part number look-up in ETK (EPC) by VIN or model in place of using/invoicing the following part numbers may result with the wrong part numbers being invoiced and installed, this could delay the payment of claim.

Q2. Which inflator is affected?

This recall is for vehicles which have already had the Takata PSDI-5 driver front air bag replaced as part of a previous recall.

 

Q3. Why are other BMW models not included?

Other vehicles have frontal air bags that were produced or repaired with different inflators.

 

Q4. Why is this recall just coming out now? 

The recall schedule follows the guidelines published by NHTSA in the May 2016 amended Takata Recall Coordinated Remedy Order.

 

Q5. If I had my driver’s front air bag module replaced prior, do I need to have it replaced again?

Yes. This final replacement part is ammonium–nitrate free. Please contact your authorized BMW center immediately to schedule an appointment to have this important free repair performed as soon as possible.

 

Q6. What is difference between the interim and the final repair?

The final repair incorporates a newly designed and tested replacement inflator with guanidine nitrate-based propellant.

The interim repair was an inflator with ammonium nitrate-based propellant.

 

Q7. What is the fix?

The driver’s front air bag module/inflator will be replaced.

 

Q8. How long will the repair take?

This FREE repair may take about an hour; however, additional time may be required depending upon your BMW center’s schedule.

 

Q9. How will I be notified of this recall?

You will receive a letter by the beginning of March via First Class mail, advising you of this recall. 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.

 

Q10. Do I have to wait for my letter in order to have my vehicle serviced?

No. You should schedule an appointment immediately with an authorized BMW center for service and repair. You can locate your nearest BMW center at www.bmwusa.com/dealer.

 

Q11. What options are available if it is too inconvenient for me to bring my vehicle to a BMW center for service?  There are a few options to help overcome the inconvenience of bringing your vehicle in for service like mobile repair, alternate transportation, pickup/drop-off, dealer events and towing. Contact your local BMW center to check what is available.

 

Q12. What is the specific concern?

Takata’s investigation to date indicates that exposure to certain environmental conditions (several years of exposure to persistent conditions of high absolute humidity) could lead to overly aggressive combustion in the event of air bag deployment.

 

Q13. What is desiccant? 

Put simply, desiccant is a substance with properties that enable it to soak up water vapor from the air surrounding it.

 

Q14. What can happen as a result of this issue?

In a crash where the air bag deploys, the air bag inflator housing may rupture and could cause metal fragments to pass through the air bag cushion material, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.

 

Q15. 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.

 

Q16. How did BMW become aware of this issue?

BMW became aware of this issue from Takata (the air bag module supplier) and NHTSA.

 

Q17. Can I continue to drive my vehicle?

Yes. However, you should have this service performed by an authorized BMW center as soon as possible. If you are not the only driver of this vehicle, please advise all other drivers of this important information.

1 Associated Investigation

Air Bag Inflator Rupture
NHTSA ID: EA15001
Dated opened: February 24, 2015

The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) opened PE14-016 in June 2014 based on six inflator rupture incidents involving consumer owned vehicles produced by five vehicle manufacturers. All six vehicles were operated in Florida or Puerto Rico at the time of the rupture and for the majority of their service life, and were equipped with inflators produced by Takata, a tier-one supplier of automotive air bag systems.

During the course of PE14-016, ODI determined that five additional vehicle manufacturers used inflators of a similar design and vintage also supplied by Takata. No evidence of field failures was found in vehicles produced by these five additional manufacturers. Nonetheless, at ODI’s insistence, all 10 vehicle manufacturers initiated a regional recall within approximately two weeks of the opening of the investigation. The regions recalled initially included Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, areas with high absolute humidity and climatic conditions believed to be a significant factor in the inflator ruptures. As part of the recall actions, inflators removed from remedied vehicles are to be returned to Takata for testing.

Takata’s initial test results on passenger inflators from remedied vehicles indicated a much higher than anticipated rupture frequency for inflators returned from Florida. Accordingly ODI requested all 10 manufacturers expand the regional recalls for passenger inflators to include other geographic areas where high absolute humidity conditions exist, including the Gulf States and other coastal areas. Takata’s testing of the passenger inflators to date continues to indicate this geographic area as having the highest risk, with no ruptures occurring from inflators returned from outside the expanded recall regions. During PE14-016 four additional passenger inflator field events occurred, all in vehicles from the same expanded geographic region.

Also during PE14-016 four additional driver inflator field events occurred including two in vehicles from regions not known for high absolute humidity, specifically California and North Carolina. Accordingly, ODI requested all five of the affected vehicle manufacturers currently using the subject Takata driver inflators expand to nationwide recalls. Significantly, neither of the affected vehicle manufacturers or Takata provided any explanation to account for these two driver air bag inflator ruptures outside the area of high absolute humidity. Takata testing of returned driver inflators indicates a lower rupture frequency as compared to passenger inflator testing. All test ruptures reported by Takata to date have occurred on inflators returned from high absolute humidity areas.

The investigation now includes all manufacturers and vehicles known to be affected at this time. ODI’s investigation will focus on, among other things, root cause analysis, other potential defect consequences, identification of affected vehicles scope, and adequacy of the remedy.

The five ODI reports cited above can be reviewed online at https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchNHTSAID under the following identification numbers: 10537899, 10568848, 10585224, 10605877, 10651492
