    Phone problem! SORTED :)

    Good to hear. Is the V50 a BMW phone? (BMW comes up on display when phone is first turned on) If it’s just a generic V50, chances are you will have battery drain issues as the BMW V50 has specific software to hibernate and allow the ibus to shut down that the generic V50 doesn’t have.
  3. Maybe just the MD drive unit for the CCC. I don’t know though, you’ll be the pioneer! How’s your Japanese for searching Ebay Japan? :) Or maybe ask a car yard that imports Jap market E6x’s.

    The phone audio output and mic input are in series with the Voice Control module. So if it’s a problem, the phone will work and make calls but there won’t be any audio.
  5. Jap market cars had a MD option for the CCC.

    It could be the voice recognition module. It’s a small module with a single blue plug that should be behind the CD Changer.

    Pinout diagram of iPod Changer

    They were designed so the plug for the CD Changer is a direct plug in. so Pin 1 is RT/VI terminal 30 from Fuse 38 and Pin 2 is BR - earth/negative.

    Does your car have Voice Recognition(SES)? If so, is it working?

    It’s been a while....

    The LMB interior looks better in person than in photos. I could be biased but I like it!

    How the vanos solenoid works on the M62tu 3.5 V8

    I’m not certain, but I suspect you may need to remove the Vanos distribution block to get to the check valve. Which is quite a big job. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-535i-lim/repair-manuals/11-engine/11-36-variable-camshaft-control/Ak7d3iC Also if the camshaft seal rings are worn you’ll get oil pressure loss through them.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    It happened to me a few weeks ago, but I swear it was a Pteradactyl!

    How the vanos solenoid works on the M62tu 3.5 V8

    Solenoids or Adjusters? Here’s how the Vanos on a M62TU works (page 3):- https://www.meeknet.co.uk/E38/m62tu.pdf The solenoids rarely fail. If they do, you’ll have fault codes and most likely rough running and an engine light. Replacing them is just a matter of unplugging the connector, removing the seal and unscrewing the solenoid with the special tool 11 6 420 which is just a 6 point, thin wall 32mm extra deep socket.
