F30 flex disc recall


 Ok I know it’s been awhile since I posted something,,,just had some family stuff to take care of,,,and now I have some health issues to take care of,,,so be patient everything should be back to normal soon,,,,this is a picture of flex disc at transmission on a F30,,,,some of you guys might have a recall about this flex disc,,,,I guess this metal flex disc cracks and comes apart,,,,I haven’t seen that yet,,,,if I do I will post pictures. This is the new flex disc,,,we have gone back to the old reliable rubber flex disc,,,,old school. Ok this is for anyone replacing a flex disc,,,these marks on the side of the flex disc look like little arrows,,,,the arrow has to point toward the transmission flange or the driveshaft flange,,,if you don’t the flex disc will get damaged. Here’s the new one installed.

    What are the symptoms of cracked flex discs? Is there a SIB or recall notice, and if so, is it on all F30, or just specific range of production dates?

    Hello BMWtechnician. I see that BMW has 2 more new recalls for the E9x model. Do you know how often the parts fail on these 2 recalls and what BMW will do about it? Thanks!

    • I’m sorry which new recalls,,,,it funny the customer knows about the recall before the technician do,,,,what happens BMW notify the customer first with a letter,,,then they notify the BMW techs with a bulletin about the recall.

        Recall Campaign No. 17V-676
        BLOWER MOTOR WIRING

        Recall Campaign No. 17V-683
        POSITIVE CRANKCASE VENTILATION (PCV) VALVE HEATER

        I am referring to these 2 recalls. Both of them released within a couple days of each other last week. I thought you guys would know about the recalls way before us?
        Anyways. You might want to check them out. It is 1 million cars recalled. So you might be doing a lot of recall work on this soon.
