I have a BMW M5 e60 Recently the SMG pump motor broke

Customer Question
HiI have a BMW M5...
HiI have a BMW M5 e60
Recently the SMG pump motor broke causing the car to go into fail-safe mode.
The motor was replaced, and the car drove for about 1500 km before the new motor broke exactly like the first time.The new motor was replaced on warranty, and i managed to drive about 20km before it broke again.My question is. What can cause the motor to keep breaking ?
I have been driving slowly and without hard accelleration etc.The problem can be the motor since it keeps happening. The issue must be somwhere else, and the motor simply the consequense ?Thanks
