I got a reminded letter from BMW about the airbag recall. I have to go do that yet. I called in and talked to an advisor (who was actually pretty cool btw) and he told me that my PCV heater needed replaced and some sort of mat thing according to my VIN.

What is the mat thing? A sensor under the passenger side mat? I know there was one in the seat because whenever I put groceries on it the seatbelt warning gos off until I buckle the milk in. Im just curious, if I have this "sensor" where the heck is it? Is it under the carpet??? Should I even care? If its part of the airbag system, I definitely care but does anyone know what its for?

It***8217;s in the front passenger seat. I think it***8217;s the occupancy sensor mat that sometimes develops a crack that prevents the airbag from deploying.

Yes to all above.

Most importantly, since they're offering it for free, then do it for sure, enjoy their free coffee and the 2019 BMW loaner they give you.
