Bulletin 240311

Has anyone heard of bulletin 240311? I've searched and can't find any information.


Per BMW of Asheville NC this bulletin calls for a couple of plugs that go into the transmission bell housing to help silence noises coming from the transmission. I had asked them to listen to my transmission because it's fairly noisy at idle (and in a quiet garage). (Sounds like an idler pulley going bad, but the noise is not coming from under the hood.) Just wanted to make sure nothing was going wrong prior to my warranty expiring. The work order does not show the part number for the plugs.

I'm driving a 2011 X3 28i.

Thanks

I dont know what an idler pully sounds like, but I have a noise when I drive that sounds metallic... very hard to explain. Windows down and a curb on either side of the car to refelect the sound coming from under the car is when I hear it best. Usually I hear it at speeds under 40 and with the car is under load.

Also 2011 X3

I remember reading about the problem a few years back, but I haven't seen anything about it lately. Looking around, I don't see any reference to that number, but I do find reference on another forum to a couple of $10 caps being installed, part numbers 24-14-7-603-258 and 24-14-7-567-139. My recollection is that the problem was limited to the 28i, but I could be mistaken.

Thanks, using the part numbers you provided I was able to find more info on the XBimmers forum.

Sounds like the same thing. I hear mine at idle after I've pulled into my garage. Do a search on the part numbers listed in this thread and look for the XBimmer forum. A guy there talks about having the plugs installed on his 2011 X3 28i and it solved the noise. Time to get yours into the dealer before the warranty expires (sometime in the next year or so).

I dont have a copy but I asked the dealer about it and they pulled it up. Ask your dealer. Apparently my car had the "plugs" and the dealer wasnt able to replicate the noise, so no fix for me.
