So as some of you know, my Dad's ///M had all the SMG recalls done on it and we got it back about a week ago(THAT THREAD). As I told you in the last thread, the car was not running too well and wasn't releasing the clutch at the right time and stuff. So I go to take some pictures and on my way back the battery light comes on...so I was like wtf so I drive another 100 yards and the power steering is out and the temp gauge starts raising. So I pull over. My Dad comes (he was pretty mad) and he looks into the engine, and it turnes out the whole belt tore off the pulleys for the altinator, coolant pump (or something like that), and the power steering pump. And as we look closer there is a big chip in the pulley and in the alternators spindle. Ofcourse it has to go out when I was driving it ghead yea ill try to take some pictures and it was obvious the cause, bmw was not very careful when putting back together our ///M....dammit now it is gone for another length of time.... ill get pics in a bit

Damn that sucks. I always wondered if mechanics messed stuff up on purpose, so you would have to spend more money. Is it still under warranty?

so fella's it was flat beded to BMW earlier this afternoon. They are going to fix that belt and all the spindles and my dad and I basically want them to reverse the SMG recall stuff they did. It was fine before...

the second pic shows the two cracks, the left one is just a pulley, the right is the alternator spindle which is what actually wore down the rubber of the belt eventually breaking it...

Which dealer did this? I can take a good guess, but I won't since I have to take my car back there for the 5th time (18 days so far) on warranty work for two different, but fortunately minor issues. Your repairs better be under warranty, especially with those miles. I'd like to see what kind of excuse they give for not fixing it under warranty.

I seriously doubt that the recalls would have anything to do with the problem you guys had. The most common recalls are a SMG relay recall which involves swapping 2 electrical pins in the relay connector and replacing the relay, the other is reprogramming the SMG module, both of which are very non-intrusive and are nowhere near the drive belt/alternator area.

Reversing the recalls is an upsurd idea .... RECALLS ARE DONE FOR A REASON!!
You should read the recall notices that were sent to you or your Dad and see WHY they were done before you make suggestions like that.

Just make sure the belt work is done and is done properly and I'm sure all will be well. Coincidences do happen you know :-)

Good Luck,

DT

P.S. Post the recall #s if you can, I'd be curious to see just what was done.

The latest recall for SMG has been a programming issue anyway...it has nothing to do with the problem you have discribed. You should probably leave the recall alone for the obvious reason stated above. Thanks DT.
