  4. Brake pad light on

    Did you replace the sensors when pads were changed? If if not did the sensors come away from the pads intact ( assuming they hand not been triggered) Reason for asking is I had the same issue, someone had tried to reuse the sensor and looked to have damaged the wiring, over time water /dirt had got in and I'm assuming cause the triggering of the light on the dash. New sensor cured the issue. John
  5. E39 530i Sludge in Oil Filler Cap

    Had this problem and was due to previous owner doing short journeys. No problem since the car has been on mixed driving cycles and not just short journeys.

  7. Oldest original part replacement.

    It just shows that fitting OEM or OEM equilivent and not the cheapest out there is worth it. Out of curiosity which make thermostat did you fit? John
  8. Oldest original part replacement.

    Have just replaced the thermostat on my 530i sport as it was taking an age to get up to temperature. Replaced with a Wahler and all went to plan. Looking at the part taken off and it looks to be the original thermostat manufactured by Behr with a date of 08/2000 of manufacture and has covered 140k miles. Anyone else replaced original parts of a similar age? John

  12. Thermostat and Viscous Fan E39 530i

    Phil, Last one regarding Number 2, is that for the fan itself of for the viscous fan coupling that connects to the water pump? If for the fan could I have a price for the coupling that connects to the water pump? Thanks John
  13. Thermostat and Viscous Fan E39 530i

    Phil, Regarding No.3 Is that for each side? Quick look on RealOEM calls it "Lower Left/Right Engine Compartment Cover". Just to confirm its the correct part. Thanks John
