BMW is recalling certain model-year 2022 X4 xDrive30i, X4 M40i, and X4M vehicles due to incorrectly positioned license plate lamp cutouts. The rear license plate may not be illuminated properly and could cause confusion to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will begin mailing owner notification letters on Dec. 14. Owners can call the automaker at  800-525-7417 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.

To resolve the issue, dealers will modify the rear license plate bracket.

Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
