I don't know if any of you have had this from BMW but it refers to metal parts escaping from the airbags and they require owners to take their vehicles for checking or replacement of the bags, all well and good but what puzzles me is how they intend to test it short of setting it off which does not sound like the best idea.

Thanks Belatucadrus, that explains it.

blowing the gas generator to bits filling the car with shrapnel. Not quite the way they described it though more like very small pieces of metal may find their way into the bag:-))
