SITUATION

The clutch cover screws were produced with too much protective coating which can cause the screws to back out causing oil  to oil leak onto the catalytic converter.

NOTE: Do not replace the right engine housing cover.

 

For New vehicles in dealer inventory, A Modified procedure can be performed to replace the screws without removing the cover eliminating the need for a gasket exchange.

Chronology :

In early September 2022, BMW became aware of a potential issue during testing when it was reported that three engines on a test bench exhibited signs of leakage at the clutch cover. Also, an out-of-specification torque value was found during unbolting of the clutch cover on three additional engines. An engineering review was initiated.

A review of engine testing records suggested that there were two more engines, tested in early June and July 2022, which may have exhibited similar symptoms.

Electronic records involving the engine production process were checked which indicated a reduction in torque when mounting the clutch cover. Further reviews with the supplier found that bolts were not produced to specifications.

On September 30, 2022, BMW decided to conduct a voluntary safety recall.

BMW has not received any reports, nor is BMW otherwise aware, of any accidents or injuries that may be related to this issue.
