You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them.

On 25 vehicles, a bolt was not tightened to specification and could loosen over time. If the bolt loosens and breaks at the connection, vehicle handling and control could be compromised, increasing the risk of a crash.

Please contact your BMW dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
