Just blew its top on the fuel pump, leaking all over.  Last time they fixed the RT gratis, we’ll see this time.

Well, That Sort Of Bites! Good luck with the fix.

If it is the plastic disconnect above the reinforcement collar that broke, you can get a metal replacement from Beemer Boneyard. Your dealer will want to replace the pump assembly, which will still have that plastic fitting. I have replaced 3 of these that broke after dealers installed the steel reinforcing collars during the recall campaign. Why BMW used that plastic part instead of the metal one makes no sense at all.

Not under the recall.   Expensive.  

 

A local shop replaced my 06' RT fuel pump under the recall without charge, not lucky this time.   Same shop, decent people.

During the recall campaign, they fixed the issue by putting a reinforcement ring on my 07. (it was cracked but not leaking at the time)

2 yrs ago it started leaking. I brought it back to the dealer and they replaced the pump assembly at no charge.

 YMMV

That's what they did with my RT.

Since it was a real recall, it still should be covered.
