Recall: No. 7 of 11
Recall Ref: R/2006/119
Exact Model: 7 Series 6 Series and 5 Series
Description: Rear shock absorber mounting may fail
Build Date:
Numbers: 3743
Defect: It has been identified that the lower rubber mounting on the metal bush of the rear shock absorbers may fail to meet the quality requirement. Dependant on the mileage and operating conditions, the rubber mounting may come completely free from the shock absorber. If this occurs the bodywork would no longer be supported above the wheels, causing it to come into contact with the wheel concerned. Should this occur, the possibility exists that a critical driving condition might occur or even the risk of an accident.
Action: Recalled vehicles will have the rear shock absorbers checked, and replaced if necessary
Launch Date: 06 July 2006

Build Date: 01 July 2012 to 27 September 2012
Numbers: 81
Defect: In individual cases, the oil pump may no longer provide the required oil pressure. This may cause severe engine damage. Additionally, the occurrence of critical driving situations cannot be ruled out because the oil pressure may drop suddenly while driving. The driver will usually notice a drop in the engine oil pressure due to the check control message ''Low oil Pressure''. It is also possible the engine block will be damaged and as a result engine oil may be lost.
Action: The oil pump will be replaced with the correct version.
