A code is being thrown that translates to "seat belt tensioner, driver's side". I see a recall in your database for this issue and 2002 BMW X5's but when I call the dealership (BMW of the mainline) and provide them my VIN#, they said the recall doesn't cover my particular car. Unsure why that would be as I have the same problem w/the same year and model car as in this recall. Obviously, my car suffers from the same issue and should be recitified by BMW free of charge. Thanks
