On September 14, 2020, a non-US field report indicated that a 2019 BMW Z4 experienced a fuel leak. An engineering review was initiated, and the fuel tank supplier was contacted.
A review of supplier production records indicated that a deviation in the welding process had occurred when joining (welding) the two halves of the fuel tank. The review indicated that a specific process parameter involving the heating time of the tank halves may not have met and, therefore, could lead to an out-of-specification weld condition between the two tank halves.
Vehicle assembly information and supplier production records were reviewed to determine the number and production dates of potentially affected vehicles.
On November 5, 2020, BMW Group decided to conduct a voluntary recall for potentially affected vehicles.
BMW Group has not received any reports, nor is otherwise aware, of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

OMB Control No.: 2127-0004 Part 573 Safety Recall Report 20V-700 The information contained in this report was submitted pursuant to 49 CFR §573 Manufacturer Name : BMW of North America, LLC Submission Date : NOV 12, 2020 NHTSA Recall No. : 20V-700 Manufacturer Recall No. : Toyota: 20TB16 Manufacturer Information : Manufacturer Name : BMW of North America, LLC Address : P.O. Box 1227 Westwood NJ 07675-1227 Company phone : 18005257417 Population : Number of potentially involved : 49 Estimated percentage with defect : 100 % Vehicle Information : Vehicle 1 : 2020-2021 BMW Z4 Vehicle Type : LIGHT VEHICLES Body Style : 2-DOOR Power Train : GAS Descriptive Information : Approximately 14 vehicles were assembled with a fuel tank where the weld between the two halves may not have been performed according to specifications. Basis for recall population determination: Vehicle assembly and supplier production records were reviewed to determine the production dates of potentially affected vehicles. Recall component difference to non-recall component: The weld between fuel tank halves may not have been performed according to specifications. Although 100% of the vehicles may not have been welded according to specifications, whether the issue in each case will lead to weld separation and a fuel leak, creating an unreasonable risk to safety, depends on the actual weld condition and the vehicle’s operating conditions. Production Dates : JUN 26, 2019 – JUL 09, 2020 VIN Range 1 : Begin : NR End : NR Not sequential Part 573 Safety Recall Report 20V-700 Page 2 The information contained in this report was submitted pursuant to 49 CFR §573 Vehicle 2 : 2020-2021 Toyota Supra Vehicle Type : LIGHT VEHICLES Body Style : 2-DOOR Power Train : GAS Descriptive Information : Approximately 35 vehicles were assembled with a fuel tank where the weld between the two halves may not have been performed according to specifications. Basis for recall population determination: Vehicle assembly and supplier production records were reviewed to determine the production dates of potentially affected vehicles. Recall component difference to non-recall component: The weld between fuel tank halves may not have been performed according to specifications.

Production Dates : APR 11, 2019 – JUL 16, 2020 VIN Range 1 : Begin : NR End : NR Not sequential Description of Defect : Description of the Defect : This safety recall involves the fuel tank. During supplier production, a welding operation may not have been performed according to specifications. Over time, and due to factors such as road vibration and/or swelling of the fuel tank when full, this weld could start to separate. FMVSS 1 : NR FMVSS 2 : NR Description of the Safety Risk : If the weld starts to separate, a fuel leak could occur. Fuel, in the presence of an ignition source, could lead to a fire. Description of the Cause : NR Identification of Any Warning that can Occur : This condition may be noticed by a fuel odor, or a fuel leak under the vehicle. Involved Components : Part 573 Safety Recall Report 20V-700 Page 3 The information contained in this report was submitted pursuant to 49 CFR §573 Component Name 1 : Fuel Tank Component Description : Fuel Tank Component Part Number : 7462371 Supplier Identification : Component Manufacturer Name : Magna Steyr Address : Tesma Allee 1 Sinabelkirchen FOREIGN STATES 8261 Country : Austria Chronology : On September 14, 2020, a non-US field report indicated that a 2019 BMW Z4 experienced a fuel leak. An engineering review was initiated, and the fuel tank supplier was contacted. A review of supplier production records indicated that a deviation in the welding process had occurred when joining (welding) the two halves of the fuel tank. The review indicated that a specific process parameter involving the heating time of the tank halves may not have met and, therefore, could lead to an out-ofspecification weld condition between the two tank halves. Vehicle assembly information and supplier production records were reviewed to determine the number and production dates of potentially affected vehicles. On November 5, 2020, BMW Group decided to conduct a voluntary recall for potentially affected vehicles. BMW Group has not received any reports, nor is otherwise aware, of any accidents or injuries related to this issue. Part 573 Safety Recall Report 20V-700 Page 4 The information contained in this report was submitted pursuant to 49 CFR §573 Description of Remedy : Description of Remedy Program : The fuel tank will be replaced. Owners will be notified by First Class mail and instructed to take their vehicle to an authorized BMW center / Toyota dealer to have the remedy performed for free. If this condition was noticed on a potentially affected vehicle prior to this recall, the remedy would be covered by the BMW / Toyota New Vehicle Limited Warranty program. Therefore, reimbursement for a pre-notification remedy re Part 573.13 and Part 577.11 is not necessary.
