Remedy Dealers will inspect both front safety belt tensioner and buckle assemblies, and if necessary, replace these parts. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began during March 2003. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
Remedy Dealers will install an additional retaining clip to further secure the brake line to the front strut. Additionally, if inspection of any brake hose indicates that it has experienced damage, the hose will be replaced. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during February 2003. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
Summary On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, the connection of the safety belt buckle to the steel rope of the tensioner does not meet BMW specifications. In severe frontal crashes, this connection can detach. If the connection detaches, the protection provided by the safety belt is likely to be impaired, and serious injuries to the driver and/or front passenger could occur.
Summary On certain sport utility vehicles, it may be possible for the front brake line to slip out of the retaining bracket located at the front strut. The brake hose that is attached to the brake line could come in contact with the tire and be subjected to wear and abrasion. This could initially cause some brake fluid leakage and eventually lead to a substantial loss of brake fluid. There could be a noticeable reduction in brake performance if a loss of front brake performance occurs.
