  1. Soot on the inside of your tailpipes = No DPF imo and you should hear light burble under idle...If you do get round to physically looking at it, any outside (non manufacture related) welding will tell you that it has been opened up and the DPF brick probably removed. If you do remove it, note that at the front of the DPF canister (side nearest the turbo) it may have the CAT brick still in it, possibly. I only say that as i had my CAT left in when i did my 5 back in the day. Edit - Simple test would be to high rev it and if there is any smoke, then you have no DPF

    BMW 2006 E60 530D Stopped in water help!!!

    Disconnect your IBS sensor and give it a try. It's the secondary thinner cable that comes off one of the battery connections. It will have a squarish clip part way up.

    Torque converter

    Anybody know of a good TC specialist in the Midlands? My 7 has the revs jump slightly when cold from startup first thing, it also has that bumpy road feeling when cruise control is set at 50mph from cold. All fine when warm though.

    Chrome Window Exterior Trim Rejuvenation?

    Autosol polish is what I use and does the job nicely.

    Limp mode, here are the codes.

    Ok, but did it drive any better with the MAF unplugged?

    Replacing MAF, coding/resetting

    I am under the impression that you can't reset the adaptations using INPA. I only say that as I never found the option to do so when I had my E60. I used DIS to do all that kind of stuff.

    Limp mode, here are the codes.

    Have you tried running it with the MAF disconnected? I know you've replaced it but it's worth a try.

    What shocks?

    I bought some bilstien front m sport shocks back in the day for mine. It was an E60 though but they were absolutely fine.

    6 CD changer clunking

    My dad's cd changer is no longer loading discs and just makes a periodic cluncking noise. I've managed to get the magazine out etc but ain't got a clue as to what has gone wrong. I have also removed the whole unit. Any advise from people who have experienced a similar issue is appreciated.

    6 CD changer clunking

    No Bluetooth and it's the type that fits in the glovebox and not the boot. I'd be interested if it's the right type blobby.

    6 CD changer clunking

    I asked a local repair company who said that they couldn't get parts for them so don't repair them anymore. I'll try a few other places on that front but will try and open it and take a look myself. Not sure how to go about opening it and what to look for if I do get it open though :-/ ....

    '05 525d No Power

    Your DPF is clearly blocked with those back pressure readings. That's why your have no power when accelerating. You need someone with DIS to connect to it and force a couple of regens and also tackle the reason why it hasn't done so in the past.
  14. Disconnect your IBS sensor which is the little connector that hangs of your battery cable and then re try.

    113 grams of Ash

    Ahh sorry was talking about the soot mass. 11.2g is nothing imo.

    113 grams of Ash

    Err from personal experience I've never mine over 30g over the period of a month and it has not regen'd either. But I always do a forced regen every month due to it being remapped with the dpf still good for another 100k according to ISTA. So, I would say yours is pretty full and I would look to get a forced regen sorted using DIS etc.

    Latest psdzdata files made no difference

    CAFD missing

    So i coded quite a few things today on my 7 using esys but noticed a couple of the ECU's did not have a CAFD to be able to read and subsequently edit etc. The only thing I've had done recently is a software update to the latest I Level which is now 17-7 for my 2011MY. Any thoughts most welcome.

    Gearbox service

    Anybody know of or can recommend a good gearbox specialist that uses zf kit as I'd like to get my auto box serviced purely as preventative measure. I'm based in Coventry so around the Midlands area ideally.

    Dpf removal, and new mot rules...

    I thought 2004 MY did not have dpf's? If your tailpipes point downward then no dpf, if straight then I am mistaken.

    CAFD missing

    Hopefully sort it with the latest set psdzdata files...
  23. Coded it on my diesel today and confirm the same as OP. Display works but does not populate with any info

    Lane Departure Camera

    Thought I'd post it here as it's a bit quiet on the 7 series section:-) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm struggling to get this blooming thing re calibrated after cocking about with the other cameras recently. Question I have is, for the initial part of the calibration is it better to be driving the car or stationary? I've also lost the road speed limits as well so am guessing they will all come back once sorted. Just want an idea on the best way to re calibrate from someone who may have already done it using ISTA? Thanks in advance.
