Thanks for the info. From what I surmise. They are removing the cable, replacing a connector on it, and reinstalling it as a new part # 61-12-9-312-133 . I tried to locate this part on http://bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/E8...tion_box_rear/
but it doesn't show up so I gather it's a new part number replacing either 61 12 9 189 850 or 61 12 9 165 850. I do wish the recall technical instructions were more available but for sure, this forum is the next best or thing. ... and in many ways better since there's no substitute for actual experiences.
