I'll pay close attention to the details & style of connection used

i had this recall done yesterday. the dealer also replaced my battery because i had an increased discharge message on the nav screen. I did notice some debris on my drivers side carpet that they did not vacuum up fully I drove half a block from the dealership and the 4x4 icon popped up with a message on the nav screen. Made a u turn and drove back to dealership. The SA told me the stability program needs to be recalibrated due to the battery replacement.. job done and all is well now.

To JZ

The connector is slightly revised. There is now a hex screw on the top of the connector to put tension / pressure on the actual spade all the time.

to all, no seats or carpet comes out .. trim is removed to access the JB ( junction box ) as stated earlier and about 1 foot of the cable is cut off, then a new updated cable end is crimped on and then the splice is heat shrunk. There is no work in the trunk except to disconnect the battery.

regards..

Hmm, that should probably be enough time. They asked me if I wanted a courtesy car, of course I said yes.

I would like to know this as well - or more generally - How does BMW get your information? I've moved around a bit and don't think I'll be getting any letter.

For anyone who had their car shut off on them while driving and took it into the dealer, did the dealer find any fault codes? If so, can you tell me which code it was?

Yep. I imagine I'm going to wait a while in LA. South Bay is PILED with BMWs, and there's only one close dealer.

Hopefully I don't HAVE to get it done at Shelly where I bought it - I'd like to, but they're like 40mi away and I'm not sure I'd get a loaner.

Has anybody taken their car in for the recall with their JB4 on? I really don't feel like taking it off just for the simple fix they have to do, but I just wonder if they have to route any wires under the hood or if they would even say anything about it. There is only one dealer here and I haven't dealt with them before, just looking for some feedback.

As posted above, at least in my case, I didn't receive a letter - got a call from my dealer to schedule appt.

Mine was done yesterday, stated it would take 3+ hrs but they gave me a loaner anyway. Dropped off car @ 8:30AM - wasn't done till 4:30PM

Apparently I was one of the 1st cars done at my dealer - parts only arrived end of last week & they had their training
