After sitting for 5 days, my '12 135i (US) w/97K miles started blowing HOT air - not 'warm' air - but heated air even with A/C set on full max. Read that this may be an indication of radiator fan not working but oil and water temps are normal, even when sitting still. No engine check lights, nothing. Any ideas from the brain trust? Thx!

I know this is being posted in other places, but figured it should be mentioned here.

We are FINALLY getting notified that BMW has started a recall for this issue on our cars. It seem like the first official posting was August 6th 2019 as that's the date of the recall. For reference, I can find info on the same recall for the 3 series back in late 2017, and as most of us know, the 1 and 3 series share a lot of the same parts.

Curious to hear other people's experience when getting the recall done. Time it took, what else was looked at, etc. I figure this should be a pretty straightforward thing based on the DIY's, but you never know.

I haven't received anything about a recall and I haven't gotten any recall mailings from the DOT (one can register for these, the last I got was for campaign 19V563, front seatbacks may fold unexpectedly, 2018-19 X3 and X4). If/when I hear anything I will post that here.

It will be interesting to see what the repair entails as this is a water problem and not an electrical issue (IMHO, at least).
