AFFECTED VEHICLES

This Recall Campaign involves E46 (3 Series) Vehicles, Model Years from 2000 to 2006, that were included in an earlier Takata recall and received an interim remedy.

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 January 16, 2020) on certain Model Year 2000 – 2006 BMW vehicles that were produced between February 25,1999 and August 28, 2006.

This recall is for vehicles which have already had the passenger front air bag 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 passenger’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 passenger’s front air bag module will not correct the other fault code(s).

 

CAUSE

In a crash where air bag system deployment occurs, the air bag inflator housing may rupture.

 

CORRECTION

Replace the passenger’s front air bag module.

 

PROCEDURE

Make sure to note on the repair order any observed damage to the interior of the vehicle prior to any repair.

See Repair Instructions REP 72 12 000, “Remove and refit/replace the air bag unit”, or follow the attached repair procedure.

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

The replacement air bag module’s serial number must be documented on the repair order so it can also be entered into the claim’s comment section.

  • The serial number is identified below by the red box (1).
  • The last 7 digits of the part number is identified below by the green box (2).

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.

 

PARTS INFORMATION

Please monitor the Parts Matrix and DCS messages for the parts ordering procedure

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.

Part number Description Quantity
72 12 6 998 949 Passenger’s front air bag module (final remedy part) 1
51 45 8 146 760 Retaining element 1
07 11 9 905 374 M8 self-locking collar nut 2

The nuts and fasteners may already be in stock at your center, so please only include these parts in your order when they are needed.

 

PARTS RETENTION AND RETURN

Recalled parts that are removed from BMW vehicles cannot be used for resale!

The parts replaced to perform and submit for this Recall repair procedure are the property of BMW NA.

Your center is responsible for the proper identification, storage and documentation of these parts. They must be held in a secure retention area until notification of claim payment is made by BMW NA through DCSnet.

Upon claim payment, a DCSnet part return tag will be generated for the passenger’s front air bag module with special handling instructions.

  • Please DO NOT return these recalled air bag modules directly to Lightning Resources or the WPRC.

Inflatable air bags are classified as dangerous goods by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and require special preparation, packing and labeling for transport.

Your center is responsible for following all rules and regulations that apply to shipping dangerous goods as described in the attachment.

A shipping procedure has been created for returning the replaced air bag modules directly to Takata. There is also a procedure available for Bulk Shipping 15 or more air bag modules at one time to Takata.

These procedures are contained in the Part Return Program Instructions and Bulk Ship PDF attachments to this bulletin; please read both.  Effective immediately, please use the following email address when scheduling bulk shipment returns to Takata:

Scfieldaction.14305@xpo.com

The parts are to be packaged in the same packaging that the new part arrived in for shipment back to Takata.

The returns pickup schedule has been changed from weekly to every two weeks (bi-weekly).

What will BMW do?

Your vehicle will be inspected to confirm the type of passenger’s air bag module/inflator that is currently installed. The inspection will be performed for FREE. If it is confirmed that your vehicle contains a “like-forlike” air bag module/inflator, it will be replaced with a final remedy part. This FREE repair will take about three hours.

There are a few options to help overcome the inconvenience of bringing your vehicle in for service, if needed. Contact your local BMW center to check what is available.

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
