    I feel your pain , David , as I have recently had to pull my stripped out 3.6 M5 track car , Sebring Sienna , to bits due to the dreaded rot and our in-house bodyshop really do not fancy the job of putting her right for the money it would make them . That said , there are many bodyshops / smaller operations that will put that little lot right , so stay postive and take your time . Glad to see you are still keeping the faith . D

    The black plastic cover goes over the long rod connecting pin / clip assembly that is connected to the pedals , going from the driver's footwell to the passenger side. The coolant level warning is likely an issue with the sensor in the expansion tank or the pins on the sensor that the plug pushes on to . If not the relay is under the black plastic cover containing the ccm and lkm under the bonnet . Good to see this M5 is eventually taking shape , Adi .

    Only the 3.8 has this resonance box #17 connected to it's air filter housing trumpet # 15 . Apparently increased air flow to engine is the benefit . The alternator ducting that begins on the front left corner should continue all the way to the alternator via a couple of connecting pieces . D

    No worries . Bear in mind , that even after you fit a new sensor , the OBC will take a while to recalibrate . D

    The wiring is on the RHS , 2 Wires that come from the same area as fog light wiring . https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&iss=VS&imgurl=http%3a%2f%2fi.ebayimg.com%2f00%2fs%2fMTUzNlgxNTM2%2fz%2fG4YAAOSw3ydVy7ca%2f%24_35.JPG&mid=03F1B96831FC619E34B62BE075D34094A3BEFDAA&ccid=9zaHa7Ji&simid=608044070714411036&thid=OIP.9zaHa7JieHSNcmqn87X4eAEsEs&exph=300&expw=300&first=1&cal=0.14893617021276595&cat=0.08244680851063829&car=1&cab=0.848404255319149

    Cool , I'll see what I've got for you when I'm over late next month and drop you a line . I'm really happy to see you giving this M5 so much love . D

    More than likely , although removal of the a/c and related air pump reduces the draw of that 3rd belt on the crank thereby freeing up power . D
  14. BMW E34 M5 S38B36 Restoration

    My pleasure Az . Do you still have air conditioning ? D

    3rd plug is for the air pump / emissions pump . It takes a humble man to ask for help , a humble man indeed . D
