Recall Number: 13V407000

Recall Date: 09/11/2013

Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING:TAIL LIGHTS

Problem Summary: BMW IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008 THROUGH 2010 528I, 535I, 550I, AND M5 PASSENGER CARS MANUFACTURED FROM MARCH 1, 2007, THROUGH DECEMBER 31, 2009. OVER TIME, INCREASED RESISTANCE AT THE TAILLIGHT ELECTRICAL CONTACT POINTS MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE GROUND TERMINAL AND HOUSING OF THE CONNECTOR RESULTING IN AN INTERMITTENT OR PERMANENT LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY OF ONE OR MORE REAR LAMP FUNCTIONS (TAIL, BRAKE, TURN-SIGNAL, REVERSE).

Consequence: INTERMITTENT LIGHT OPERATION REDUCES THE ABILITY TO WARN OTHER MOTORISTS OF THE DRIVER'S INTENTIONS, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

What Owners Should Do: BMW WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE REAR LAMP BULB CARRIERS FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING OCTOBER 2013. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BMW CUSTOMER RELATIONS AT 1-800-525-7417 OR EMAIL BMW AT CUSTOMERRELATIONS@BMWUSA.COM.

THE INSULATED BULKHEAD CONNECTOR FOR THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE MAY HAVE BEEN INCORRECTLY ATTACHED TO THE TRUNK FLOOR PANEL, WHICH CAN LEAD TO A LOOSENING OF THE BOLT CONNECTION.
