NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V653
Potential Number of Units Affected: 72
Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC
During servicing of the rear differential for a prior service action, the rear sub-frame bolts may have been reused instead of being replaced. Reuse of the existing bolts may cause the bolts to loosen.
Loose rear sub-frame bolts may adversely affect vehicle handling and control, increasing the risk of a crash.
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear sub-frame bolts with new bolts, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin October 24, 2016.
Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
