2011 BMW X6 xDrive Recalls
The fuel pump mounted inside the fuel tank may have wire contacts not sufficiently crimped. This could result in a fuel leak and vehicle stalling condition. This could increase risk of a fire hazard and crash.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The front drive shaft universal joint may not seal out water and debris properly, resulting in premature wear and damage to the joint. This could cause the joint to fail, resulting in the front wheels not be driven as needed. This could also damage other nearby components, as the joint detaches.
The inflator that deploys the driver's frontal air bag in the event of an accident may rupture and spray metal fragments onto vehicle occupants. This can increase risk of serious injury or death.
The bolts that secure the housing for the internal engine timing components can loosen over time, possibly breaking. This can cause the engine to stall.
On vehicles equipped with an 8 or 12 cylinder turbocharged engine, the circuit board for the electric water pump may overheat. This could lead to an electrical fire under the hood.
