Recall 19V-593: Brake Caliper

 

On August 12th, 2019 BMW Motorrad announced a delivery stop for all G 310 GS (K02), G 310 R (K03) and C 400 X (K09) motorbikes due to a concern with corrosion on the front and rear brake calipers. Approximately 5,938 Model Year 2017- 2020 BMW Motorcycles / Scooters in the US, produced between Oct 2016 and Jul 2019 are potentially affected.

  • For customers riding existing units: an inspection process will be available through the dealer.

The process will be communicated to the dealer through a Service Bulletin by September 6th. Customers will be informed of the inspection process through a letter from BMW Motorrad USA in October. If corrosion is found the caliper will be replaced with an existing new part.

New calipers that are not subject to corrosion are being developed and will be available at the end of the year in limited supply and allocated to dealers. Once available, customers will need to return to have the new calipers installed as the final remedy.

  • Units currently in dealer and BMW inventory: must remain on the stop sale until the update parts are available for the repair. As mentioned previously parts will be in limited supply at the end of the year and allocated for existing customers first.
  • Dealer Floorplan: Based upon the information currently available on parts timing, BMW Motorrad USA will provide an adjustment to cover excess dealer floorplan expenses incurred due to this recall through the end of this calendar year. A separate bulletin will be posted the week of 9/2/19 with full details and timing for these credits.  We additionally will continue to monitor this situation to determine if a further adjustment should be considered.

A Q&A document has been attached for your reference and further detail. This document has already been supplied to our customer relations team.

Further parts distribution and status updates will be communicated in December of this year.

Your authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer should be able to answer any questions that you may have regarding your qualifications for reimbursement of a previous repair. If you qualify for such a reimbursement, your BMW Motorcycle dealer will also be able to advise you of the manner in which you can expect to receive reimbursement.

Your authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer should be your primary contact on this issue; however, our Customer Relations and Services Department may be contacted at 1-800-525-7417 for any special assistance that you may require.

In special situations where your authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer cannot be of assistance, you may submit your written request for reimbursement to:

Customer Relations and Services Department
BMW of North America, LLC
P.O. Box 1227
Westwood, NJ 07675-1227

If you intend to submit a request for reimbursement to our Customer Relations and Services department, your motorcycle (if it is still in your possession and was repaired at a facility outside of the BMW Motorcycle dealer network) will need to be inspected at an authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer before a claim can be accepted for consideration.  This is to ensure that prior repairs at an outside facility meet BMW standards for recall completion.

IMPORTANTE RETIRADA POR MOTIVOS DE SEGURIDAD

Repuesto disponible

Este aviso se aplica a su motocicleta/scooter: Campaña de retirada n.º 19V-593: Mordazas de freno

 

Marzo de 2020

Estimado propietario o arrendatario de BMW:

Le enviamos este aviso de conformidad con la Ley Nacional de Seguridad de Tránsito y Vehículos (National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act). BMW AG ha determinado que algunos de los modelos de 2017 a 2020 de las motocicletas G 310 GS y G 310 R, y de los scooters C 400 X de BMW tienen un defecto que afecta la seguridad de estos vehículos. Según nuestros registros, usted es el propietario de una motocicleta o un scooter potencialmente afectado.

 

¿Por qué lo estamos contactando?

Nos complace informarle que estamos listos para hacer la retirada. Si todavía no se hizo la retirada, o solo recibió el repuesto provisorio, comuníquese de inmediato con el concesionario de motocicletas BMW autorizado a fin de programar una cita para que le den el repuesto final. Para conocer la ubicación del concesionario de motocicletas BMW más cercano, visite www.bmwmotorcycles.com/dealer.

 

¿Qué podría suceder?

Con el tiempo, las mordazas de los frenos delanteros o traseros podrían corroerse. Si una mordaza se corroe, el rendimiento de los frenos puede verse afectado, lo que aumenta el riesgo de tener un accidente.

Si nota un aumento en el ruido de los frenos, signos visibles de corrosión en una mordaza, un olor extraño cerca de la mordaza o un menor rendimiento cuando intenta acelerar, o le resulta más difícil maniobrar o empujar manualmente la unidad, es posible que su motocicleta o scooter tenga este problema. Comuníquese con Asistencia en la Carretera para Motocicletas de BMW (BMW Motorcycle Roadside Assistance) llamando al 1- 877-680-2176 para que lleven su vehículo al concesionario de motocicletas autorizado más cercano.

Si usted no es la única persona que usa la motocicleta o el scooter, comparta esta información importante con los demás usuarios.

 

¿Qué hará BMW?

Se reemplazarán las mordazas de freno sin cargo, lo que demorará aproximadamente dos horas. Si ya hizo esta reparación por su cuenta, consulte la información adjunta sobre la posible elegibilidad para obtener un reembolso.

 

¿Qué sucede si la información actual de la titularidad de la motocicleta o el scooter es incorrecta?

Puede actualizar la titularidad de la motocicleta o el scooter y la información de contacto completando la tarjeta con respuesta postal paga adjunta. Si usted es arrendador de una motocicleta o un scooter, las reglamentaciones federales le exigen que le envíe este aviso al arrendatario dentro de los diez días.

 

¿Qué puede hacer si tiene alguna pregunta o algún problema?

Para consultar las últimas actualizaciones sobre esta retirada, visite www.bmwmotorcycles.com/recall. Si tiene preguntas sobre esta retirada, comuníquese con el concesionario de motocicletas BMW autorizado. Si necesita más ayuda, comuníquese con el Servicio de Atención al Cliente de BMW (BMW Customer Relations and Services) llamando al 1-800-525-7417 o escribiendo a CustomerRelations@bmwmotorcycles.com.

Si el concesionario de motocicletas BMW no puede reparar el defecto sin cargo o en un plazo razonable, usted puede notificar al administrador de la Administración Nacional de Seguridad de Tránsito en Carreteras (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), 1200 New Jersey Ave., S.E., Washington, DC 20590, llamar a la Línea Directa de Seguridad Vehicular (Vehicle Safety Hotline) de manera gratuita al 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), o visitar el sitio web: https://www.safercar.gov.

El centro autorizado de BMW de su localidad le solicitará una copia de la carta de notificación al propietario, al igual que la factura pagada previamente. Después, inspeccionarán el vehículo (si todavía lo tiene) antes de presentar una reclamación en su nombre ante BMW of North America, LLC para solicitar el reembolso.

Tenga en cuenta lo siguiente:

  • Solamente se reembolsan las reparaciones que se deban a esta retirada por motivos de seguridad. No se reembolsarán los gastos derivados, como remolque, alquiler, hospedaje, reparación de daños, etc.
  • El precio de venta minorista sugerido por el fabricante (MSRP) para las piezas genuinas de BMW se considerará como la guía para los cargos razonables por piezas.
  • La mano de obra de la reparación, los impuestos y el desecho de los residuos peligrosos, cuando se hayan pagado previamente, son elegibles para reembolso.
  • Los gastos por las reparaciones realizadas más de 10 días después de la fecha de la última carta de notificación al propietario enviada por BMW no son elegibles para reembolso.

El centro autorizado de BMW de su localidad debe poder responder las preguntas que pueda tener sobre sus calificaciones para el reembolso de una reparación previa.  Si califica para dicho reembolso, el centro de BMW de su localidad también podrá informarle sobre cómo puede recibir el reembolso.

El centro autorizado de BMW de su localidad debe ser su contacto principal sobre este tema. No obstante, se puede comunicar con el Customer Relations and Services Department (Departamento de Relaciones con el Cliente y Servicios al Cliente) llamando al 1-800-525-7417 si necesita asistencia especial.

Recall Campaign No. 19V-593:  Brake Calipers

October 2019

Dear BMW Owner / Lessee:

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.  BMW AG has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain Model Year 2017-2020 BMW G 310 GS, G 310 R motorcycles, and C 400 X scooters.  Our records indicate that you are the owner of a potentially affected motorcycle/scooter.

 

Why are we contacting you?

We developed an Interim Remedy (temporary brake caliper replacement) which we urge you to visit an authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer to have performed for free.  We will notify you with a follow-up letter as soon as we can perform the final repair for this recall.

 

What could happen?

Over time, the front and/or rear brake calipers may be subject to corrosion.  If a caliper became corroded, then braking performance could be affected, increasing the risk of a crash.

If you notice an increase in brake noise, visible signs of corrosion on a caliper, an unusual odor near a caliper, reduced performance when attempting to accelerate, or find that it is more difficult to manually push/maneuver the unit, then your motorcycle/scooter may be experiencing this issue.  Please contact BMW Motorcycle Roadside Assistance at 1-877-680-2176 to have your motorcycle/scooter brought to the nearest authorized Motorcycle dealer.

If you are not the only rider of this motorcycle/scooter, please advise all other riders of this important information.

 

What will BMW do?

When the Final Remedy (updated brake calipers) is available, the brake calipers will be replaced for free, and take approximately two hours.  If you already had this repair performed at your own expense, please see the attachment regarding possible eligibility for reimbursement.

 

What if the current motorcycle/scooter ownership information is incorrect?

You can update motorcycle/scooter ownership and contact information by completing the enclosed postage-paid card.  If you are a motorcycle/scooter lessor, Federal Regulations require you to forward this notice to your lessee within ten days.

 

What if you have questions or experience problems?

For the latest updates to this recall, please visit www.bmwmotorcycles.com/recall.  Should you have any questions about this recall, please contact your authorized BMW motorcycle dealer.  If you need additional assistance, contact BMW Customer Relations and Services at 1-800-525-7417 or at CustomerRelations@bmwmotorcycles.com.  

If your BMW motorcycle dealer is unable to remedy the defect without charge or within a reasonable period of time, you may notify the Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey

Ave., S.E., Washington, DC 20590, call the toll-free Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800424-9153), or go to https://www.safercar.gov.

Please be assured that your safety is important to us, and we sincerely apologize if this recall causes any inconvenience.  We recommend always wearing a helmet and protective apparel when riding.

Sincerely,

  1. My G310GS has been in the shop for 4 weeks!!! Brake recall, leaking fork oil and a bad transmission. At this point I have no idea if they will ever fix it. In the dark. They do not understand the meaning of customer service.
