    2011 335d SCR Issue

    Hi All,
    I noticed that most of the threads on this subject are from 2017 and older. Looking for any new info you guys could give me if something has changed.
    I have checked my warranty service records and found my vehicle threw SCR codes at 70k miles in 09-2014. The dealer was trying to charge me for a repair on this issue... $1100. + labor to replace the DEF tank due to a faulty temp sensor. I was told it was a critical issue that I had to take care of, but would/could or did not want to tell me what the result/damage to engine except that I could experience performance/mileage/die-in-traffic scenario... Since I didn't have the funds available, and the car ran beautifully w/o any power loss of mileage issues, I figured they were pulling my chain, and I could afford to put it off until either my finances changed or the thing died and I would park it and drive my truck. Each time I brought it in for service they stressed that I should take care of it and I kept telling them that I was not satisfied with their answers and to just do what I needed done.

    I found the SIB on this today, so I am trying to work out the timeline, checking my service tkts, and will try to push this through to BMW NA to see if they will fix/reimburse...

    Can anyone add to this issue for me...??

    Also... just did a walnut blast of my intake, EGR replacement, one bad diesel injector replacement and fuel filter change plus front/rear brakes... man... she has never been as smooth or as powerful/quick... so if I can get this done... that annoying little service engine soon light will finally go away after 6 years...

    Thank all...

    If you take it in to a dealer, they should fix it by replacing the DEF tank (for free). And if the NOx sensors have failed, they should replace them too.

    As long as you're under 120K miles.

    Facing the same problems and please let us know how you come out with BMW? I have a 2010 35d with 143,000 miles and cannot keep it going much longer due to it just eating $100.00 bills, THANKS, Jim
