Recall Date: 08-10-2012 Affected Vehicles: 585
Component:
Engine and engine cooling:cooling system:fan
Summary:
This recall involves aftermarket parts sold by valeo. valeo is recalling certain engine cooling fans, part numbers 696121, 696273, and 696275, used as service replacement parts for model year 2008-2011 bmw 1-series, 2006-2011 bmw 3-series, 2000-2009 bmw 5-series, 2004-2005 bmw 6-series, and 2006-2007 bmw 7-series vehicles. a metal-oxide semiconductor may overheat due to insufficient screwing of the semiconductor on the aluminum heat sink. this primary failure could cause adjacent components on the fan assembly motor circuit board to overheat and short.
Consequence:
This condition could cause the fan motor to become inoperative, or cause the motor circuit board in the assembly to overheat, potentially leading to a fire in the engine compartment.
How to Fix:
Valeo will notify owners and replace the fans free of charge. the safety recall began on august 22, 2012. this recall is being conducted by valeo, not by bmw. for further information, owners may contact valeo at 1-888-718-2536.
