  • BMW X5

The recall is being carried out due to a potential problem with the front driver’s side airbag. The driver’s side airbag could deploy abnormally in a crash which could possibly lead to injury.

There are 4,978 affected vehicles in Ireland.

What to do:

BMW Ireland will be writing directly to those owners involved in the recall to arrange to have their vehicles fitted with a new airbag inflator.  The letter will advise you to contact your nearest BMW dealer who will arrange to do the refit free of charge. You can also contact BMW Ireland directly on 1890 719 421.
