Feds Close BMW X5 xDrive35d Idler Pulley Bolt Investigation

A BMW X5 xDrive35d investigation has been closed after federal safety investigators found BMW’s plans to fix the vehicles should be enough to correct any safety risks.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened the investigation in April after BMW X5 xDrive35d drivers reported idler pulley bolt problems.

BMW had recalled about 30,000 xDrive35d vehicles in 2012 because customers lost power steering when the idler pulley bolts broke.
