    Hello, does anyone know where I might find the"badge" labeled AIRBAG that is on the back portion of the interior door card? I have one on the passenger door just behind the armrest but not one on the driver's side, just a hole where it would go. Looked endlessly on realoem with no luck. I am not even sure what to call it to search properly. Pictures below... 20190830_182144.jpg 20190830_182134.jpg 20190830_182209.jpg

    I just purchased these direct from BMW. Cost a couple of £ each and they posted them direct to me.

    Part number 23 on the diagram:

    They come in either Schwarz (Black) or Beige.

    How bizarre! I don’t have these on my car and yet I know there are airbags there!

    I can confirm these are readily available from dealer as bought replacement for one I thought I’d lost back in June. Don’t cost a lot either.

    When preparing car for Silverstone Classic found missing item behind drivers seat!!!

    Hello Jjim! I owe you belated thanks for pointing me in the right direction - I picked up the part yesterday.

    Is the diagram and table above from realoem.com? If so, can you tell me what term you used to search or did you go through the categories to find this diagram? Or is the diagram from another source?

    Again, thank you for your effort and have a great day!!

    Yep, it’s from RealOEM. Only found it as I was search for one myself. Took me a while to locate it.
