    I haven't checked this to make sure, but it's a pretty safe bet that you would be buying a reconditioned unit, not a new one. You will also have to...

    If you go to bmw for a transmission problem, they will just replace the whole unit. My 750li was $13,000😵. I should have gone to Midas for a repair!

    Before you take your car to the dealer remove the hose from the nozzle and see if the water is pumped. If it works, nozzles may have been clogged.
