Munich. In a safety-related recall, the BMW Group is replacing a variant of an airbag sensor.

The owners of the vehicles affected will be informed without delay. The repair (carried out at a BMW Partner) will take approximately three hours and is free of charge for the customer. The affected customers will be provided with an alternative mobility service.

As a result of a software error in the production of a sensor at the supplier, incorrect data is sent to the airbag control unit in a longitudinal front-end or rather rear-end collision. This can result in the airbag not deploying safely.

The vehicles affected are approximately 33,600 7 Series, 5 Series GT and Rolls-Royce Ghost cars built from 12/2011 to 06/2012. Furthermore, a faulty replacement part was fitted in approximately 650 vehicles. These cars are also covered by the recall.

Customers can find out whether their vehicle is affected by contacting a BMW Service Partner or check directly by entering their vehicle’s chassis number at the following website:
