Research on Brakes for BMW 740iL
What do the numbers mean on the back of the BMW 740iL?
The 7 means it is a large sedan of the 7 series, the 40=4.0 liters of engine displacement, the i represents a fuel injected engine, and the L indicates a long wheel base. That long wheel base is the one characteristic distinguishing the 740iL from the other fuel injected 740's, and what it amounts to is a fair amount of extra leg room.
2000 BMW 740iL Recall
On May 15, 2000, owners of the 2000 BMW 740iL were informed of a problem with the brake lamp switch on that year's model. Specifically, they were told that the brake lamps are controlled by a switch activated by the movement of the brake pedal. This switch could fail internally, causing it to remain either in the 'brake lamps on' or 'brake lamps off' position. If this happens, the brake lamps either will not operate or will be continuously illuminated, regardless of brake pedal position. Such a condition could be responsible for accidents. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the existing brake lamp switch with an improved switch.
Costly brake system repairs may be avoided by replacing your brake components before they show signs of failure. Brake rotors for BMW are built with minimal thicknesses to save weight. The upshot here is that they cannot be repaired. They must be replaced. BMW brake rotors are subject to warping from heat, and overheated brakes are the second only to wear and tear as the most common cause of failure
How can I inspect my brake rotors?
Check the entire surface and on both sides for any grooves or obvious defects. If defects are discovered, replace your rotors immediately. Also, check for discoloration, as this may be a sign of overheating.
What do I look for on the brake pads?
Uneven wear, breakage or cracking on the friction surface. Many BMW's also have brake pad sensors to warn of pad wear. If your BMW uses sensors, replace these at the same time as your pads.
What are some other things I should look and listen for when inspecting my BMW 740iL brake system?
Check calipers, wheel cylinders, hoses and fittings for any hydraulic fluid leakage. Inspect the master cylinder, reservoir and proportioning valve assemblies as well. Check brakes by sound, know how your brakes should sound and listen for out-of-the-ordinary noises
