BMW of North America is recalling 33 model year 2017 530i, 530i xDrive, 540i & 540i xDrive, and model year 2017-2018 530e xDrive vehicles.
Prior exposure to excessive levels of humidity within the driver and passenger head airbag inflators may affect the proper deployment of the head airbags.
Deployment of the head airbag in a crash of sufficient severity may be impaired and/or the igniter could separate from the inflator, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the left or right head airbag free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin June 22, 2020.
Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
