Exclamation Crap, 2012 X535d Idler pulley recall....

Well so much for a trouble free vehicle huh? I know the fix itself is probably fairly simple but what is the tech going to screw up while performing the recall?

I have loved this vehicle with exception to the heinous factory alignment that destroyed my front tires in 2,000 miles.

Does anyone have an idea to exactly what they need to remove in order to perform this recall work?

I worry because my service history with techs almost always end in misery due to inept mechanics, I wouldn't worry too much if I were home and could bring it to Hendricks but I'm in South Florida for at least 3 months.

Thanks guy's
