Hi,

I found those two service bulletin at the bottom of the meesage board.
I do have these noises coming from behind. But my dealer told me that it was two different problems:

1) there were two dried rubber joints that were rubbing each other and making those strange "squiks" noises.

2) The rattle sound is just the windscreen fixations making some noises.

So when I read these bulletins I get to wonder who is right.
I live in Europe and wonder if here the BMW dealers are aware of these Service bulletins.

In the US, if I wanted to have these fix, would I have to pay since it's a know factory defect problem or not ?

Please help me with this one.
Best regards,

BEN
