Anyone have a copy of TSB 35.01.02 concerning the sticky pedal syndrome? I've had the problem for a while but of course my dealer said they had never heard about it. I just recently located the TSB number but thought an actual copy might be a little more effective.

Appreciate in advance.

Traveler -

I have had the same issues with finding a copy of the Sticky Pedal TSB .... easy to get the summary, but the full TSB is more elusive.

On a previous visit to my local BMW Dealer, the Service Advisor was not aware of the TSB or the Sticky Pedal Syndrome. Before I go back, I would like to have a copy of the TSB. Can you post it on line or email it to me? Thanks!

SITUATION
Customer may complain of the accelerator pedal feeling "notchy", or not moving smoothly when depressed in small increments. This situation can occur with high ambient temperatures, or if heating is directed towards the foot well area.

NOTE:

Integrity of the PWG "drive-by-wire" system is not being compromised, if such a situation is experienced - pedal movement is not restricted or limited.

CAUSE
Unfavorable friction conditions inside the accelerator pedal, when exposed to higher ambient temperatures (in excess of 140 deg F).

CORRECTION
On a customer complaint basis only, replace the acceleration pedal with an improved part. For replacement instruction refer to RA 35 40 001, which can be found in BMW TIS.

Fortunately for me, Ben Chou did all the kicking, yelling and screaming before I even asked. *grins*
Therefore, I had relatively few problems getting all that done.

Thanks Dr. Bimmer for posting that!! :thumbup:

I have an appointment scheduled for next Friday to have mine looked at, this will be great! I think I'll give them a call back tomorrow and ask if they can order the parts ahead of time so I don't have to make a second trip back.
