Side-View camera failure...

Hmm, was hoping my gadgets would last a little longer than this!

Left Side-View camera has gone down and when trying to display the function, the front right image appears briefly, the front left camera is blank and then the screen reverts back to whatever it was showing beforehand.

Car error log shows the function failure and suggest contacting service - great!

There's no obvious visual damage to the camera and I generally avoid automatic car washes so it must be something to do with the wiring or the control box maybe. The surround view still works fine as it uses the rear-facing and door-mirror based cameras so I'm not 'completely blind'

Haven't seen any other posts about this kind of problem so I guess it's just bad luck rather than bad QC on BMW's part

I had a failure of the entire camera system shortly after receiving my F30, which coincided with a fault in the lane change warning system.

Car went back to the dealer for checks and they found a loose wire in the steering column was to blame - causing a short. Problem was fixed in under an hour.

It could well be a QC issue!

Hope it gets sorted quickly.

You're right, it probably is just a wiring loom problem but I just hate the thought of dealers loosening and removing internal or external panels and covers - usually the beginning of creaks and rattles as they never quite get them back to the perfect tight factory fit......
