BMW of North America is recalling 138 model year 2018-2019 X3 sDrive30i, X3 xDrive30i, X3 M40i and model year 2019 X4 xDrive30 and X4 M40i vehicles.

The automaker said that the front passenger seat occupant classification system may have been improperly assembled, which could result in the misclassification of the seat as unoccupied, and deactivate the front airbag.

A deactivated front airbag will not deploy in a crash, increasing the risk of injury, said the company.

As regards what to do in correcting the error, BMW stated the dealers would replace the seat foam, which includes the occupant classification system, free of charge.

Owners’ notification letters are expected to be mailed August 30, 2021.

Affected owners may contact BMW Customer Service on (800) 525-7417.
