According to the recall notice, the fuel pump, and the auxiliary fuel pump in certain models may crack and leak fuel during vehicle operation. A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, may result in a fire. BMW will notify owners and dealers will replace the faulty fuel pump with a rectified unit free of charge. This recall is expected to begin April 2, 2021.

The fuel pump will be replaced by an improved version. The support ring at the quick connector location of the flange on the updated unit has been installed by an electric fastening tool.
