IMPORTANT: In vehicles from model year 2001, higher-tensile and high-tensile steels are used in certain areas.

It is essential to check whether the spot-welding apparatus used conforms to the technical requirements of the currently recommended welding sets. Should you have any questions, please contact the country-specific Hotline.

The use of technically obsolete equipment may have serious consequences for the structure of the vehicle (e.g. in the event of a crash). In the end, this can result in safety and product liability risks which can not be calculated.

Use and restrictions:

Definition of recommendation:

All currently recommended spot welding sets comply according to the latest information with the requirements relating to reliable welding of today's and future BMW Group vehicles. A spot welding unit will loose its recommendation as soon as tests with materials and material combinations designated for future use in BMW Group vehicles return negative results (see Table Group 1). All previous application before the withdrawal of the recommendation shall remain unaffected.
