I need instructions to replace the active driver head restraint system with a crash-activated restraint repair kit for a 2011 328i Convertible. no accident was involved, but is showing a warning for the restraint system.

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Saab Convertible. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, I have directions to replace the driver head restraint, but need a part number on the repair kit to see if I have those directions as well

Hello Eric. Per the BMW quote the part is: 52-10-9-169-585 Repair Kit, Crash-Active Headrest; 521099.
Thanks, Pat

HI,

Ok, I show that part number as the deploy canister/pyroactivator gas cartridge.

I do have those directions. It will take about 15-20 minutes to upload them to a pdf file for you

Ok.. just to restate. It's for a 2011 BMW 328i Convertible, it has the headrest and seatbelt support mechanism along the side of the seat, versus two long prongs holding the headrest in place. Thanks, Pat

HI,

Ok, directions are too big of a file for this site's uploader, so I have uploaded them to a mediashare, a free file sharer. Below is link. Copy and paste to your browser
