In the affected vehicles, a leak may develop in the power braking system, potentially causing a vacuum loss and consequent reduction of power braking assistance.

In the affected vehicles, a leak may develop in the power braking system, potentially causing a vacuum loss and consequent reduction of power braking assistance.

BMW has prepared an inspection and repair procedure for its dealers. The comapny will distribute replacement parts throughout the North American dealer network.

Letters will be sent by First Class mail to owners of affected vehicles in the coming weeks, requesting the scheduling of a service appointment with an Authorized BMW Center to check their vehicle. Drivers who experience reduced power braking assistance should immediately schedule a service appointment with an Authorized BMW Center.
