    The 48-volt battery connection may be misassembled

    BMW of North America is recalling 812 of the following model year 2021 vehicles:

    • 540i, 540i xDrive,

    • X5 xDrive40i,
    • X6 sDrive40i,
    • X6 xDrive40i, and

    The connection between the 48-volt battery and the starter-generator may not have been assembled properly, which can cause increased electrical resistance at the connections.

    Increased electrical resistance can increase the risk of a fire.

    What to do

    BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the connection between the 48-volt battery and the starter-generator assembly, replacing it -- if necessary -- free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin February 1, 2021.

    A fuel tank weld may fail

    BMW of North America is recalling 49 model year 2020-2021 Z4s and model year 2020-2021 Toyota Supras.

    BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel tank free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin January 4, 2021.

    BMW recalls M2 and M4 Coupes

    The fuel injectors may be missing a component

    BMW of North America is recalling 21 model year 2020-2021 M2 Coupes and model year 2020 M4 Coupes.

    Fuel injectors may have been installed without a damping component which is used to reduce vibration.

    If a damping component is not present, vibration will increase at the connection between the fuel line and the fuel rail, which over time, can result in damage at the connection.

    A damaged connection between the fuel line and the fuel rail could lead to a fuel leak and -- in the presence of an ignition source -- increase the risk of a fire.

    What to do

    BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the fuel injectors. If a damping component is missing, the injectors and the fuel rail will be replaced free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin December 21, 2020.

    Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
