BMW of North America is recalling 5,920 model year 2018-2019 BMW X1 sDrive28i and X1 xDrive28i vehicles.
Contaminated hardware may cause the attachment brackets of the taillight housings to crack, causing the lights to loosen or possibly detach from the vehicle.
If a taillight detaches from the vehicle, it would no longer provide the required lighting to following traffic, or it may become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will properly secure the taillights free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin March 15, 2019.
Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
