You're lucky that other expensive damage didn't occur after the bracket broke as has happened with others.
The free service campaign replaced only a bolt that attached the bracket to the mount with a stronger bolt. As a 2014 BEV owner, I think that BMW should have replaced the rather fragile bracket as well, but they refused. I'm guessing that this service campaign was performed on your i3, but you could verify this with the dealer where you purchased your car. If the bracket had been broken when this service was performed, it would have been replaced at that time.Drew001 wrote: ↑Wed May 05, 2021 3:49 pmI purchased this car used from a BMW dealership in a nearby city and I'm wondering, since this issue was part of a free service campaign from BMW, why wasn't this fixed between the original lessee returning the car to BMW and me purchasing it from them in April of 2017?
Unfortunately, the official BMW motor mount bracket replacement procedure involves dropping the drivetrain which is very labor-intensive (i.e., expensive). You might not be able to find a mechanic who would do this for less money. However, in the BMW i3 Worldwide Facebook group, a certified BMW i mechanic has posted a procedure that doesn't involve dropping the drivetrain. Several i3 owners have used this procedure to replace their motor mount brackets, but it might be difficult to find a commercial mechanic who would use this procedure.
