Video: More Than 4 Thousand Old BMW 3 And & Nbsp; 5 Series Were Recalled In & Nbsp; Russia
Rosstandart announced the start of a recall campaign, which included 4144 BMW 3 series (E46) and 5 series (E39) cars sold from February 2000 to May 2002. It turned out that they were fitted with defective Takata airbags.
- The main reason for the recall is a defective driver cushion gas generator. High humidity may crack its body for a long time. If the mechanism is triggered, metal fragments fly off due to internal pressure, which can seriously injure a person.
- On the recalled Bavarian cars, the driver's airbag gas generator will be replaced. It will be free for car owners.
- For the same reason, more than 37 million vehicles have been recalled worldwide. Defective airbag parts of the Japanese company Takat have been installed by 17 car manufacturers for a long time.
