BMW X3 Owners Manual: Pinch protection system

Danger of jamming even with pinch protection

Even with the pinch protection system, check that the window's closing path is clear; otherwise, the closing action may not stop in certain situations, e.g., if thin objects are present.

No window accessories

Do not install any accessories in the window's range of movement; otherwise, the pinch protection system will be impaired.

If closing force exceeds a specific margin as a window closes, closing is interrupted.

The window reopens slightly.

Closing without the pinch protection system

Keep the closing path clear

Monitor closing and make sure that the closing path of the window is clear; otherwise, injuries may result.

E.g. danger from the outside or ice might prevent window from closing properly - proceed as follows:

1. Pull the reel past the resistance point and hold it there.

The pinch protection is limited and the window reopens slightly if the closing force exceeds a certain margin.

2. Pull the reel past the resistance point again within approx. 4 seconds and hold it there.

The window closes without jam protection.
