BMW recalls certain 3 Series passenger vehicles

April 26, 2021

BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain 3 Series passenger vehicles.

The affected vehicles were produced between July 2004 to July 2011.

A safety issue has been identified with the affected vehicles where the vehicles concerned may, as time goes by, be affected by a contact fault due to frictional corrosion on the connector from the wiring harness to the blower control unit. Over time, this may cause damage to the insulation of the wiring harness, which could trigger a short circuit. This could cause a vehicle fire, even when the engine is switched off.

There are approximately 16,195 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland.


What to do:

BMW Automotive (Ireland) Limited will directly contact all affected customers by post advising them to make an appointment with their local Authorised Repairer where any necessary repairs/replacements of parts will be carried out.

If you believe that your vehicle may be impacted by this recall, then you can contact BMW’s customer care on 1890 719 421 or by email at
