X6 F16, Problem with the electric steering wheel

Hi everyone,

I have a 2015 X6 F15 and my electric steering wheel canīt adjust in & out, but up and down. I found this problem just today when I drove my car to work.

Have someone seen this kind of problem on F15/F16?

Any solution?

There are 2 different motors for telescoping (in and out) and tilting (up and down). Could be 1 motor stopped working. Do you hear motor trying to move or there is nothing at all?

P.S. Lots of electric equipment in our cars and this is the reason I turned off steering wheel memory adjustment during start/stop - just to avoid such issues. I also don't use start/stop mode to avoid starter and battery problems

When I push the button I hear a click sound but the steering wheel doesn't move in and out.

What did the dealer replaced in your car?

I am living in Sweden (Europe) and I don't think there are so many F15/F16 with this kind of problem reported, so I have to tell them that this is a common issue and probably get BMW to do this under warranty/Goodwill, because my car is just 2 months over the warranty.

exact same issue with my 2016 X6 20+k miles, just dropped to my dealer 2 days ago to get it fixed while driving 200miles new x5 loaner with extreme vibration at 75mph+

Also, while using my Valentine One Radar in this new X5 loaner - car engaging Laser Wave constantly - any idea which part of this car causing this interference?
