BMW Recall – SRS Seat Occupancy Detection Mat – 325i, 330i, 525i, 530i, 550i – E90 E60 – 17V428000

August 1, 2017

BMW is performing a recall on various 3-series and 5-series E90/91/92/93 and E60/61 models from model year 2006.   The front passenger seat occupant detection mat that determines if, and how, the passenger frontal air bag should deploy in a crash may fatigue and develop cracks which could lead to a system failure.

Affected models:

E90 3-series models – 325i, 325xi, 330i, 330xi

E60 5-series models – 525i, 525xi, 530i, 530xi, 550i

According to the recall:

“Should the system fail, in the event of a crash, the front passenger air bag would be deactivated, increasing the risk of personal injury.”

BMW will inspect and repair the occupancy detection mat or replace as necessary.

The recall is scheduled to begin September 1, 2017.  Owners of affected vehicles are being notified by BMW.  Further information can be obtained by contacting BMW customer relations at 1-800-525-7417.
