RECALL Subject : Rear Sub-Frame Bolts may Loosen

Report Receipt Date: SEP 09, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V653000
Component(s): STRUCTURE
Potential Number of Units Affected: 72


Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC


SUMMARY:

BMW North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2016 BMW M2 Coupe vehicles, 2015-2017 M3 Sedan vehicles and 2015-2016 M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible vehicles. During servicing of the rear differential for a prior service action, the rear sub-frame bolts may have been reused instead of being replaced. Reuse of the existing bolts may cause the bolts to loosen.
CONSEQUENCE:
Loose rear sub-frame bolts may adversely affect vehicle handling and control, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear sub-frame bolts with new bolts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 24, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
