The BMW tsb requires that before any solenoid is replaced on the warranty, that the tech blow thru it, reinstall it, then see if it works. Yeah, right. A flat rate tech is going to install a questionable part, put everything back together, and chance sending a part which could fail again back onto the road? Not on your life.
At the bottom of the tsb it says "Fix it right the first time, every time!" Except when BMWNA tries to save a few bucks on a part.
