IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THE COATING TO SEPARATE FROM THE INSIDE FACE OF THE STEERING DAMPER HOUSING. IF THIS HAPPENED, THE COATING COULD PARTIALLY CLOG THE OIL BORES WITHIN THE DAMPER. Consequence: IF THIS OCCURRED, THE STEERING DAMPER COULD BECOME STIFF INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH. Remedy: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE STEERING DAMPER FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING JULY 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BMW AT 1-800-831-1117.
