RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
On certain vehicles a bad component could lead to brake hose rupture causing loss of braking leading to an accident.
What Should You Do?
BMW will notify customers of affected vehicles beginning September 20, 2005. If you have not been contacted, notice brake fluid leakage, and think you vehicle falls under this recall. You should contact you local dealership. It is helpful to have your VIN Vehicle Identification Number ready when doing so.
On certain sport utility vehicles, the left front brake line bracket was not welded properly and may come loose resulting in brake line rubbing and possibly bursting. This will result in the loss of braking and could lead to an accident. Dealer will re-attach the brake line support bracket free of charge. The BMW campaign # is 05V367000
