  6. E61 tailgate boot wiring

    Started doing the repair yesterday, 2 wires were completely snapped off and 2 had deep cracks these were both on the rear right loom. My heated screen, rear wiper, One fog and reverse lights both and split tailgate do t work. Are these all on the right loom (driver side ) ? I’m using silicone wires with solder butt sleeves with 6” extra wire for all. I had to cut the loom near the tailgate side to allow the slack and now will rejoin that cut part too aswell as the extended wires

    So add extra 6 inches to exhausting loom. Will that prevent it breaking again? my left fog works, boot opens, right fog don’t work, heater, wiper and wiper don’t work does that mean only one side look broken?

    The green relay must that be changed if the compressor is changed, that's also what's stated on the eBay add for the company selling the compressor.
  15. E61 level control fault

    So I've checked with someone sitting in the back the compressor comes on as soon as load applied, the compressor runs for about 30-60 seconds then the level control warning comes. So compressor is working so fuses and relays should be ok? i will check the lines and airbags for any leaks. Also maybe the compressor is too weak to pump to correct ride height in the given time
