Service Bulletin?

My friend just took his 2009 335i in for the hpfp recall. He was having the low speed beake squeak and the tech told him that BMW had issued a service bulletin for the squeak recently. They changed out his pads for free and solved the problem.

Does anyone have any info on this bulletin? I'm taking my E90 in for the hpfp recall and I'd love to get a free brake job out of it at the same time if I can.

Hi
I've been suffering with this for a while and only just found this thread. I'm not alone!
Before I take it into the dealership I wonder if anyone has heard more about this service bulletin?

Thanks

Dealing witht the same issue. iwill try the sensor thinging and will also try and call the dealer again. My car is out of warranty and I have been fighting with them since i bough the car in 2006 when I had the warranty till now. After the warranty expired I have not taken it to them lets see how much they charge, Unless someone has a better idea and can tell me how to do it myself. Any idea will be greatly appreciated.

Has anyone tried just spraying the sensor with WD40? I used a caliper cleaner spray, too, and it worked well. WD40 is a just more readily available.

I think this is it.

I just bought an '06 330i. I am having the same issue. The wear sensor is something I will check out, but for all those who do that fix and the noise comes back I am convinced that the issue can be at least muted with some CRC Disc Break Silent. Take a look at this thread,

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=76418

it is a DIY for an E90. His noise was completely solved after doing this. And if you have the tools, it was less than a $20 fix.

Mein Auto: BMW 335i 2007
Hi. I have been plagued with this rear wheel squeal for years now. It is not the brake sensor. I have physically removed this and still have the same issue. I have replaced my pads with ceramic (low dust pads) and added a tonne of anti-squeal compound on the shims and heavily lubricated the caliper pins. This removed the issue but replaced it with a resonating hum sound from the rear. The pads have been chamfered, still no fix. The rotors are perfect and I can't imagine it's based on those.

Next step is that I am going to replace the rotors, after that will be the caliper itself. It's funny, some of the new BMWs have an extra component on the calipers. The explanation is that it dampens resonating sounds. I wonder if this is the real fix??

As for a recall, YES. Fair enough, this is not a safety issue. But if BMW thinks anyone that purchased a 335i will ever purchase another BMW, they may be sadly mistaken. Hek, BMW, I don't care about a recall - just give a REAL explanation of what is causing this problem. A $65,000 car should not sound like a rusted Buick when pulling away from a stop!
