    Zero chance of that happening for a safety recall. They do not want that liability if you were injured in an accident and the parts were not replaced correctly.

    100% correct. If the parts don't get returned, the technician doesn't get paid. Ive done at least 3 of these recalls this week alone on the e46 chassis. (plus a few others) it's a fairly quick repair, and to be completely honest, I've never pulled a fuse, just dc the battery and start pulling it apart. The driver's side can be eithrr just the ignitor or the whole pad depending on the wheeel. The passenger is always the whole airbag unit.

    FYI the airbag recall is still available in the UK.

    I've just been advised to book my E46 in for both Drivers and Passenger Airbag replacement, so will need to do so once I've arranged for some other repairs first.
