  1. What he said Ironically the batteries are cheaper at Amazon then retailers directly https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005XVV42E/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3B5SW5SOXGEY2&psc=1 I bought mine from Tayna and had it programmed in, you could do the same or buy like for like at BMW and save the programming Jay
  2. this is the one I got https://www.tayna.co.uk/S5-A13-Bosch-AGM-Car-Battery-Type-019-S5A13-P9811.html and Tayna was the cheapest at the time Jay
  3. The above link is very comprehensive so follow that for fault finding also below is a bleeding procedure which you could try as that runs the electric pump for 10-12 mins to see if pump is giving a constant stream of coolant in expansion tank 1. Connect battery charger. 2. Switch on ignition, do not start. 3. Set heater to maximum temperature, activate "Automatic" button, then reduce fan to lowest setting. 4. Press accelerator pedal for 10 seconds to floor. Engine must not be started 5. The venting procedure is started when the accelerator pedal is pressed and takes approximately 12 minutes. 6. Then top up fill level in coolant expansion tank with 250 ml (or about 18mm) above max. (only when venting (bleeding)) Jay
  4. There`s a voltage regulator on the alternator, you need to check to see if you have a Bosch or a Valeo alternator before ordering a replacement Jay
  5. I think all petrol BMWs after 2007 are electric water pumps and aren't cheap to replace when they go wrong Jay
  6. jijoe just read the thread and realised yours is a diesel so is a mechanical water pump start the car and see if there's a constant stream of coolant Jay
  7. Yes I think you need to see if the water stream is constant if pump is ok. if faulty it will fluctuate or stop or be noisy
  8. 535iAR the water pump on this is electric Jay
  9. Yes the bleed procedure is doable and instructions below 1. Connect battery charger. 2. Switch on ignition, do not start. 3. Set heater to maximum temperature, activate "Automatic" button, then reduce fan to lowest setting. 4. Press accelerator pedal for 10 seconds to floor. Engine must not be started 5. The venting procedure is started when the accelerator pedal is pressed and takes approximately 12 minutes. 6. Then top up fill level in coolant expansion tank with 250 ml (or about 18mm) above max. (only when venting (bleeding))
  10. sounds like the waterpump on its last legs start the coolant bleed procedure to see if the pump make the noise Jay
  11. you can see if water pump is working by starting the cooling system bleed procedure. the bleed procedure is long so make sure the battery is charged Jay
  12. I would get the codes read to see what errors are stored but looking at your temp at -10 cold start looks like sensor error Jay
  13. As others have said get codes read to see what errors are coming up While driving is the speedo working? if not try swapping the rear abs sensors to see if it make a difference Jay
  14. with the ABS unit out you wont get speedo reading better way would be to swap the two rear sensors and see if the fault remains with speedo or moves to other wheel Jay
  15. I would start by testing the rear wheel abs sensor to see if its faulty as a faulty rear passenger would give speedo errors as well as a faulty abs control unit Jay
