Seat Belts — Front

Summary
BMW is recalling 2,350 MY 2008 1-series and 3- series passenger cars. Incorrect crimp connectors may have been used on the side air bag and belt tensioner wiring. As a result sufficient contact between the crimp connectors and the corresponding plug may not occur which could lead to an increase in the electrical resistance of that connection.
Actions
BMW will notify owners and repair the vehicles free of charge. The safety recall began on September 16, 2009. Owners may contact BMW customer relations and services toll-free at 1-800-525-7417.
