You guys hear about it yet?

The safety recall covers certain 2009 through 2012 model year X5 xDrive35d SUVs because of a problem that could lead to a loss of power steering. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration believes that the recall covers 29,800 potentially affected vehicles in the United States. According to other sources, there are another 5500 of the diesel-powered SUVs in Canada covered in the recall.

That's interesting I wonder why the power steering would be different on the diesel vs the gas engine.

The steering rack on AWD cars has always been different; but this is the idler pully. Curious.
