I recommend that those of you getting this done at the dealer check their work. Scrappy is on the money regarding the poor workmanship on these repairs. Here’s a link to my experience :

Talk about hysteria and paranoia. Just check the cables at the connection and call it a day. If any look funny, get them replaced. It's not the end of the world.

I’m so nervous now.. last time I took my car in for the blower motor I think or air bag can’t remember. A day after I got crazy dash lights coming on saying limp mode etc... took to my shop and the positive battery terminal wasn’t secured so it was not fully hooked up when I hit bumps etc... 476 bucks later in diagnosis to find a unsecure battery terminal. Had to be the Bmw dealership doing the recall but even my Indy shop wasn’t sure they had to disconnect the battery for the recall.. anyone know.. now I have to take in in about 4 hours to get this cable done. I’m almost thinking to pull the plug and not do it yet

I would suggest getting it done otherwise when the car gets no power. When the power gets disconnected, you can not open the trunk on the later models. The keyhole for emergency power loss is not connected so does not work. If you have fold down seats you can try and go through the ski pass through to pull the release but it is far. I had to do that a couple of times just to get to the battery. Of course turns out it was not the battery.

For anyone ever in the situation, you can tap on the fuse box area under the glovebox and the connection will temporarily work again.

You can lose all power while driving. Not a fun thing. There’s a reason it became a full safety recall.

Agree, that happened to me a couple of times. Like I was just going straight and not turning, just slowed and pulled over. Scary feeling when it happens.

Going in for this tomorrow. I've got a V1 detector hardwired into the fuse box. Think I should remove the glove box/fuse box hardwire before I drop it off? I don't really want to mess with it, but maybe 1 less thing for the dealer to jack up while they're in there?

UPDATE: Yeah I'm going to pull the V1 hardwire out of the glove/fuse box area. 1 less for thing for them to screw up.

Just a update I had it done. I was told they removed the whole cable and replaced. I have a question .... can someone clarify if the plastic moulding under the glove compartment they goes along the carpet line has a gap between the carpet and the moulding piece. I have never checked but did after Th recall was done and i can slide fingers underneath between the plastic and the carpet side. I’m explaining this terribly. On the drivers side there is no gap and it’s flush... it’s the piece where your left leg passenger side would rest against...?

It not a m3 in the picture but it is the part I was alluding to. In the pic I have a gap you can fit fingers up under the area I pointed to in the pic..
