I don't understand. 20V-016 and 20V-017 Description are previously seen. Is this another recall, to replace, for instance, my already recalled and replaced Driver's Front Air Bag Module?

I do not plan on having the Passenger's Front Air Bag Module replaced until my satisfaction is guaranteed against poor workmanship and consequent problems. The procedure is very involved and dealer literature says it'll be done in an hour. Not properly on an X5!

I have copied and closely read SI B65 03 20 and note the requirement for two technician signatures at the checklist.

Conditions:

The Generator replacement should always be carried out by the same Technician(s)
Make sure your hands and clothes are clean and free of foreign objects
Only one vehicle at a time should have this work performed
This repair should be done from beginning to end without interruption
Interruptions of any kind are not permitted

Safety:

Notes on Electro Static Discharge (ESD) must be observed. (See REP-RAGRP61-6135ESD)
Do not measure or touch the electrical terminals on the Generator
Handle Generator with caution
If the Generator should fall or be damaged it must be replaced
Do not allow any foreign objects to enter the Air Bag cavity while the Generator is removed

Working Position:

Whenever possible do not place your body above the airbag

Working Location:

It is recommended to do this work in a location away from other personnel and vehicles (for example in a separate room or the parts department)
A clean workbench with ESD protection is necessary
A soft blanket is needed to position underneath the Air Bag to avoid damage to the cover
The work area should be dust free
Make sure there are no open cabinets above the workbench to avoid any foreign objects from falling into the Air Bag cavity

Exclusion Criteria: In the following cases the complete Air Bag assembly must be replaced:

Threaded bolts are damaged
Threaded bolts are bent or corroded
The Generator cannot be removed from the Air Bag without excess force
If there is a gap between the Generator & Air Bag that is not closed up when tightening the nuts

Order Acceptance:

The Air Bag cover & steering wheel should be inspected in the presence of the customer prior to repair
Record the condition of the Air Bag on the Repair Order

Checklist:

Checklist should have all boxes checked and signed by the 1st and 2nd Technician.

Just went by the BMW USA recall site to see that has not been updated, that it still recognizes the airbag recall of March 2019
