Brakes, September 26, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

These vehicles use a vacuum pump to supply power assist for the braking system. The vacuum pump can fail unexpectedly due to insufficient lubrication. This would reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will make modifications to allow for proper lubrication of the vacuum pump in order to correct this concern.

For Models: BMW 528i, BMW 535i, BMW 550i, BMW M5

Electrical & Lights, September 11, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Increased resistance at the electrical contact points may cause damage to the ground terminal and housing of the connector. This can result in an intermittent or permanent loss of one or more rear lamp functions (tail, brake, turn-signal, reverse). Intermittent light operation reduces the ability to warn other motorists of the driver's intentions, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the rear lamp bulb carriers to correct this concern.

For Models: BMW 525i, BMW 525xi, BMW 528i, BMW 528xi, BMW 530i, BMW 530xi, BMW 535i, BMW 535i xDrive, BMW 535xi, BMW 550i, BMW 645Ci, BMW 650i, BMW M5, BMW M6

Electrical & Lights, March 23, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The insulated connector for the positive battery cable may have been incorrectly attached to the trunk floor panel, which can lead to a loosening of the bolt connection. Loosening of the connection can cause an increase in electrical resistance and overheating of the cable connection, which could lead to a fire, even when the vehicle is not in use. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been completed. Dealers will secure the battery bolt cable connection as necessary to correct this concern.

 

For Models: BMW 528i, BMW 540i
