1st Recall F20 116i Sport

Hi Guys..

Just a heads up I had a call from local dealer the other day to say that car needed to go back for 2 recall's , went in yesterday and all sorted..

1. Re-program the main unit something to do with Fan/Pump ?

2. Re-place piece of external trim to stop dust,leaves,etc getting into cooling system ?

You might wanna call your dealers and see if its all F20's..

I have yet to be contacted so it might be certain 116i models.

hmm I haven't been contacted either but I think my car could use that aircon-fix. The fan goes high/low sometimes for no reason, is that the issue you guys have aswell? also have an annoying whistling sound when the air blows out the vents at the windscreen anyone else got that?

I have read about this in a German forum (http://www.1erforum.de/). BMW is supposed to know about the problem but I don't know what the solution is.
Some report that the sound disappears permanently after a while.

great to hear I'm not the only one. superspeed, any chance you could provide a direct link to the thread? My german isn't too good so hard to find the thread.

I've already bookmarked the thread about the rattle-noise from the rear. Once someone have verified there are official solutions from bmw I'll contact my dealer to have all the "glitches" fixed in one bang.

Here is a general thread which sums up all problems from other threads:
http://www.1erforum.de/der-neue-1er-...te-106233.html
The threadstarter gives this info about what I understand is your problem:
-pfeifende autmatik steuerung im kaltzustand der lüftungsklappen, status angeblich softwareupdate vorhanden (alle ab auslieferung)
Saying that you need a software update.

Here is the main thread about the whistling sound:
http://www.1erforum.de/der-neue-1er-...tor-94367.html

Another thread about aircon/ventilation:
http://www.1erforum.de/der-neue-1er-...en-103825.html

Good luck with your German

I'm hearing a noise in mine - it sounds more like a rattle from the engine when at about 1.5kprm, but not under any load. But it could also be a fan/air-con noise - not sure.
