Summary

BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2021 X5 sDrive40i and X5 xDrive40i vehicles. The right front brake disc may have been assembled with incorrect fasteners, which over time, could result in the front brake disc becoming loose.

 

Remedy

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the right front brake disc and replace it if necessary, along with the unaffected left side brake disc, free of charge. There are no owner vehicles affected; therefore, owner notification is not necessary and, as such, a planned owner notification date is not entered into the recall schedule. Owners may contact BMW’s customer service at 1-800-525-7417.

SITUATION

CAUSE

CORRECTION

Inspect the left and right front brake disc rivet installation in the area of the arrow and if necessary, replacing the front brake discs.

 

Note: Because of the almost new condition of the vehicle, the brake pads can be reused

 

No disassembly is required for the inspection.

PROCEDURE

 

  1. Position vehicle on a lift so that the wheels can be rotated.

 

  1. Carefully view into the front disc hub at the areacircled.

 

  1. Mark the inner sidewall or wheel rim edge using awax pencil (arrow) to ensure you rotate the tire one full revolution for the rivet inspection.
  2. View each of the 18 rivets (circled) on eachfront disc using a flashlight.

 

Rotate the wheel to view each rivet, until the marked line comes back to the same spot as when first started.

 

Use a  borescope if needed to obtain a closeup view.

 

Determine if the rivet is correctly shaped per the 2 reference photos.

 

OK:

The inner stem is sunken well below the outer “shoulder”

The shoulder has a significant curvature Rivet is slightly larger diameter

 

NOT OK (“NOK”):

Inner stem is nearly flush with the disc surface The shoulder is “peaked” Smaller diameter

 

Evaluate:

All rivets OK on BOTH discs: No more work needed.

At least ONE rivet is NOT OK on either disc: Replace BOTH discs. Refer to AIR Repair instructions 34 11 220.

 

Because of the almost new condition of these vehicles, the existing brake pads can be reused for this repair when the brake discs require replacement

 

  1. Clean off the reference mark on each tire.
