Alert number: A12/1228/14       
Category:  Motor vehicles
 
Product:  Passenger car
 
Brand: Alpina
 
Name: B3
 
Type / number of model:  Type: E46 Model: B3 3.3 EC type-approval number: B3S
 
Batch number / Barcode:  The vehicles in question were manufactured from May 1999 to August 2006.
 
Risk type:  Injuries
 
The frontal passenger-side inflators could create excessive internal pressure during air bag deployment after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity environments. In a worst case scenario, the inflator may rupture, possibly causing injury. Even if the inflator does not rupture, due to the specific design of the frontal passenger-side airbag module with its integrated inflator, excessive internal pressure of the inflator could potentially result in an increased risk of airbag-induced injuries in a deployment event.
