What are the defects?
Over time the vacuum pump may fail completely due to a lack of lubrication. As a result, the power brake booster unit is not supplied with sufficient vacuum force, which reduces the effectiveness of the brake assistance function.
What are the hazards?
Reduced braking effectiveness poses a hazard to the driver and other road users.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should contact an authorised BMW motor vehicle service centre, or call the BMW Group Australia Customer Interaction Centre on freecall: 1 800 813 299.
