Safety Recall 18V-248 Model Year 2007-2012 BMW / MINI

This may be old news, but I just got the letter...

Safety Recalls:

APR 18, 2018 | Recall Campaign No.18V-248

Electric Auxiliary Water Pump For Turbocharger
Status: Remedy Unavailable
Last Updated: JUN 28, 2018
Download
Description of Problem

The issue involves the electric auxiliary water pump on the models equipped with 4-cylinder turbocharged engines (MINI) and 8- and 12-cylinder turbocharged engines (BMW). The auxiliary pump is controlled electronically by an engine control unit. After switching off the engine, the electric auxiliary water pump conducts heat away from the turbocharger. Under certain conditions, the pump┬┐s electronic circuit board can malfunction. The malfunction can occur as a result of certain design features in combination with high operating temperatures.

Safety Risk

If the pump's electronic circuit board malfunctions, it can overheat. In an extreme case, overheating of the circuit board can lead to smoldering of the water pump. If smoldering occurs, it cannot be excluded that this may also lead to an engine compartment or vehicle fire.

Description of Repair

The electric auxiliary water pump will be replaced on your vehicle.

For additional information or assistance, please contact BMW Customer Relations and Services at 1-800-525-7417 or via Email at [email protected] or MINI Customer Relations and Services at 1-866-825-1525 or at [email protected]

did anyone actually get notified of this recall? My '12 550GT is in the shop now with a leaky turbo coolant line and a shot aux water pump, my Indy said the pump was a recall and should be covered, called the next day and said BMW said mine wasn't on the recall.

Joe, ours definitely falls into the production range and I don't recall (lol, pun intended) ever receiving notification or having the work performed. Will inquire next time with my SA.

the pump itself was around $75, but added another hour labor
