BMW E46 Air Bags Side, Window problems : 1.
On Wednesday September 20, 2006 I Was Driving Down The Interstate At About 70-75 Mph When My Side airbag On The Driver Side Deployed For No Reason. I Have A 1997 bmw 528i With Approximately 230k Miles. I Do Not Know The Cause Of The airbag Deploying. I Did Not Hit Any Potholes. There Was No Reason For The airbag To Deploy. I Could Not Hear Well For About 10 Minutes And My Left Arm Has A Large Bruise On It. I Took It By The Dealer And They Said They Did Not Know What Went Wrong Or Why The airbag Deployed. They Said They Had Never Seen That Before. This Is A Safety Issue Because When The airbag Went Off, I Had No Idea What Was Happening. In Heavy Traffic That Could Cause An Accident Especially If It Was The Front air Bag. *nm
