Grounding Wire? Hatch question..

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi,

I noticed a wire broken off. Its located in the rear hatch area upper left. It appears to be a grounding wire. Does anyone know if this is a grounding wire. Mine seems to have rusted free and broke. Anyone else experience this?

I had the same issue. Depending on who you talk to, it is either a grounding wire or an earth strap - same thing, different words. I had mine replaced under warranty. If you replace it yourself it's a $25-$30 part in the US, depending on where you buy it, or maybe $30 - $35 in Canada.

The part number is 51247273679.

It is definitely the grounding wire...had mine replaced under warranty over a year ago.

Common problem.

Anyone had it fixed and it happened again - as it seems a weak point on the F25?

Thanks everyone! I will take it in and see if they will cover it under warranty.
