“Suzuki determined that a production line worker who had been responsible for performing attachment of the brake fluid lines to the ABS module had deviated from the normal installation procedure that the worker had been originally instructed to follow.” “The production worker independently altered the tightening procedure to a single wrench movement as opposed to the correct procedure that specified multiple wrench movements.”
This recall doesn’t require a part to be replaced, so the description simply states that “the brake pipe flare nut connection tightness at the ABS module will be inspected and the flare nuts tightened to the correct torque specification.”
Naturally, the chance of brake fluid leakage means that those levels will also be checked (“and adjusted if necessary).
When will BMW notify owners and dealers about this recall?
