My 57 plate 118D has the recall outstanding according to the .gov site but not our 60 plate 135i! :?
My old 10 plate 135i had the work done in a previous recall. Chances are your 135i had the work done at a previous service or when it was previously at the dealership.

Had a quick read through this but not seen if anyone has found out exactly what work is carried out ?

If its battery end of cable that easy enough but if fuse box end under dashboard thats a lot of work to get at! I dont like anyone working on my car but me as they always manage to do something they shouldnt!... hoping its battery end of things then hopefully easy for them and they cant mess anything else up!
It's the fuse box end. Cut and crimp job.

Is that 100% accurate ? as in have you had it done ? :) having had my dashboard out recently i know how much work is involved to get to the buried fuse box!...maybe there is enough room to get to cable without taking too much off though.

Ah thanks that would make sense as I've only had it since October, will double check on the phone to make sure :thumbs:

Hi everyone!

My BMW E88 09 is part of the recall and is being fixed as we speak, I had a service booked before the recall was announced by BMW.

Regards,

Madfrog75.

I have had the recall work done recently on my 2008 E87. There was of course no technical information available about what work was done or parts replaced, so I decided to have a look myself. I swung down the glove box door and removed the panel underneath, but could see that it would be a time consuming job to get any nearer to the fuse-box. Has anyone managed to inspect the fuse-box front and rear without having to remove the dashboard?

Had mine done under the recall 16 months ago. Found then the following day the heater was no longer working. This was corrected after returning to the dealership. Very lucky this happened in winter so I discovered something was wrong. Check everything!

Not sure if anyone has asked this already, but I'm assuming there must have been some sort of change in design of the affected part from a 2006 car to a 2007? I have a September 2006 130i which doesn't have the recall, but a few months down the production line and it would have. Only thing i can think of is that Stop/Start was introduced around that time?

I wondered if only facelift cars affected ?

My dealer really annoyed me today. Car was booked in late morning for a 'while-u-wait' 1.5hr appointment for the recall work to be done. On arrival I was told it would take 3 hours! From past experience of them I guessed that would more likely become 4hrs and I didnt have the time for that. So had to rebook for next week when I can let them have the car the whole day.
