Passenger seat sensor recall.

Yesterday, I received a letter from MINI giving details of the "Front passenger seat occupant detection mat sensor" recall.

The letter informs me that I am to contact an authorised MINI dealer to make an appointment to have this fixed.

Now here is my problem. I live out in the boonies of NW Ohio. My nearest MINI dealers are in Columbus, Detroit or Cleveland. That means that I have a minimum of a 4 1/2 hour round trip to Detroit, plus time to have the repair done. This would mean wasting a vacation day to have the work done, or blowing a day off work (my CFO says that she is not happy with this option).

Does anyone know if a BMW dealer could do this work?

No.........MINI dealers only. BUT, you may be able to get an independent shop to do it and get reimbursed the agreed to amount from MINI. Check with MINIUSA and see if this is an option.

Tell the CFO you would like to take her to the city for a day of shopping, a good dinner, and a restful night in a fine hotel.

The letter also stated not to have anyone sit in the passenger seat if your car displays the airbag off and the cluster light is on. Super inconvenient as now we could hold the liability if something were to happen after being notified!? OP may want to have the CFO sit in the back for the big city road trip.

I got my recall notice. It says they're not ready to do the recall work yet, but that I'll get another letter sometime in the future. With no dealer anywhere near here, I'll take mine to East Bay in Pleasenton and make a weekender in the City out of it.
