BMW is recalling certain model year 2009 Z4 30I and 35I vehicles manufactured between March 10 and March 19, 2009. A defective crimp connector in a belt tensioner wiring plug may lead to increased electrical resistance of that connection.
The safety belt tensioner wiring will be repaired free of charge. The recall began on September 5, 2009. Owners may contact BMW customer relations at 1-800-525-7417.
