2012 X5D recalls

Took my '12 X5D in for an oil change and there were 2 recalls on it, 1 for the O2 sensor and 1 for the EGR bracket. SA told me that the recalls were recent within the last 3 weeks which is why I might not have been notified yet.

That's odd. No open recalls on my 2011 X5d.

Owners Overview - Safety Recall - BMW North America

What does the above say for yours?

ETA: I wonder if those count as "safety" recalls? From what I have read, the EGR bracket recall is quite old. Maybe it just became applicable to the MY2012 X5d?

Mine is due for the O2 sensor recall. It isnt a 'safety recall'. Didnt see an EGR bracket, but I ran it on Dec 23, so if it was after then I would have seen it. Not in a particular rush...

The o2 sensor is a new recall. The EGR bracket was done on my '13 model at its first service nearly a year ago. I guess they will do the o2 sensor at my second service.

Here's both bulletin.

Service Action - Replace the Oxygen Sensor: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1e...ew?usp=sharing

Service Action - Retrofit Bracket for EGR Cooler: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mDX...ew?usp=sharing

The one about the bracket has been around a year or so, while the O2 sensor is more recent.

People will not get a letter about this since it's not a recall but a service action. The opening paragraph describes this.

When I checked at the end of November 2014 there was no new service action about EGR bracket. The original service action was dated October 2013 and updated in November 2013 where marked "NEW" the bracket p/n is not marked "NEW" so I doubt there's more than one version.

User Bawareca on another thread suggests the bracket just kicks the can down the road, resulting even worse outcome when failure occurs.

Unfortunately, most E70 diesels are beginning to run out of original warranty, so less likely BMWNA will issue a recall even if they see a few failures now or in the next months.

So, if there's another version being worked on, it will not be for E70 diesels, IMHO.

I don't think so. I have a feeling that the EGR bracket recall came out in 2013 right afer my last service. I have a couple of cars so the mileage on my '12 is around 17k so it's been over a year since I've brought my X in for service. So this recall is probably new to me, but has been out for over a year.

That being said, I haven't had any issues at all that required service other than annual oil changes and top off the DEF.
