Description:
This recall involves the wiring for the system, known as the blower-motor, that controls air flow for the heating and air conditioning system. Over time, the connection between the wiring and this system could deteriorate and, in rare cases, could lead to overheating.

If overheating occurs, this could further lead to a short circuit or melting at the connection. In extremely rare cases, this could lead to a fire.

The wiring will be inspected and a new part will be installed. Additional components will be replaced, if necessary, as determined at the time of repair.

Doesn't appear to be all E82s. Checked NHTSA for 2013 128i and 2013 135i and only found the airbag recall.

I just got an email from my local dealer about this for my 2009 128i (which I recently purchased for my teenage son several months ago). As I am the 3rd owner of this car, I probably would have ever received a notice if I did not have the car at the dealer for some SULEV warranty work a few months ago.....

Or go to the BMW recall site and update the ownership/address. That is what I did before the airbag recall happened so my Vin & name were in their system.

Got mine done today. It is only for 2008-2012 Models Years (07-11 build years). Attached is the TSB with repair procedure and pictures that shows the checklist and what needs to be replaced; the blower motor, the long harness, the short harness or a combination thereof based upon the condition of the wires.
