Recall notices for 1997, bmw m3
NHTSA Campaign Number : 97V131000
Year : 1997
Vehicle Make : BMW
Vehicle Model : M3
Summary :
The cruise control and throttle cables are attached to the same throttle valve
actuating lever at the throttle housing. It is possible that the plastic
bushing on either cable could break due to environmental influences coupled with
vibration. If the bushing breaks, the outer cable housing can separate from the
bushing. In this case, during application of the throttle pedal without cruise
control being engaged, the outer tube could catch on the edge of the broken

This could cause the throttle valve to remain partially open. It his were to
occur, the car might not decelerate as expected increasing the risk of a vehicle

Dealers will install a spring steel clip on the outer tube of each cable in the
area of the adjusting screw and plastic bushing. The clip is designed to
prevent the outer tube from dislodging from the bushing.
Owner notification is expected to begin by the end of October 1997. Owners
who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date
and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact BMW
at 1-800-831-1117. Also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration's Auto Safety Hotline at 1-800-424-9393.
