328d: SCR Metering Cover Recall

Just FYI, brought my '17 328d in for 10k service this morning and learned there's a recall for the SCR metering cover. SIB 511617

Not sure what the part actually is or what the issue is, but must be pretty new if '17 vehicles have it.

My general purpose search engine got no hits on "SCR metering cover."

It is to install tamper proof screws which use a special tool.

Maybe not, but the SIB specifically says: "SCR Metering Cover Recall Campaign Code 0051130400 SIB511617." So this SIB is in fact a recall.

Very interesting. Thank you. So owners are not to attempt repair of components behind this cover.

I have a collection of secure fastener tools, but not this rounded-triangle head.

Thanks.

That's a real pi$$er. One of the most DIY-friendly possible fixes to 4d16 (and other DEF problems) is to remove, inspect and flush/clean the metering valve (injector) for the DEF system - it lives on the bottom of the DPF behind that panel.

Wonder if access to this area would hinder any type of attempt to disable scr......

not a recall...nowhere does it mention recall in the SIB, it's a service action.

I'll say, you sure know how to discourage people from sharing information in the future. Troll.

Let's not throw around ad hominem attacks. I in no way discourage info sharing, but want people to be clear. A recall is a specific thing, and even though whoever typed in in your repair order "recall" the SIB is not a recall. It's an open service action to look at next service if not already done. A recall is bring in your affected car.

Hi! New here...
I, too, just got hit with the SIB 511716. I'm guessing it's rather rare, since my dealership (who claims to be the one of the largest in the US) had to order the new bolts.

The service paperwork I got after my service says that they special ordered
"FP Number 07-14-2-704-785 FILLISTER HEAD SCRE"

They said they'd call me when the parts show up and sent me on my way.

They special ordered a single screw?

No... they ordered FOUR of them.
As if money were no object.

yeah, rare indeed...SIB lists only 608 vehicles where the four .99c each fillister head screws were not to spec.

It shouldn't be hard to cut a slot into the screw heads with a Dremel tool to get on them with a flat bladed screwdriver to get them out. Then replace with non-security screws. Maybe it's worth looking into getting the correct security screwdriver tool for the screws.

If this were on my car I wouldn't allow this SIB to be performed in the first place.

Good luck.

Yep, you read my mind. A triangle head tool can be easily made with a bench grinder and appropriate sacrificial torx head screwdriver (or whatever you deem has enough meat to grind on).
