  1. E60 oil separator/breather replacement

    Thanks, i just had a look on real oem and it lists the breather housing but not oil separator whereas previous engines do so looks like its normal. Thanks for your reply
  2. Please help car won't start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I would say this is more than likely a fuel starvation problem. Check fuel filter and the pre supply pump on the filter. I have had these fail before causing the symptoms you experience. Also your two codes left are both different sensors on the fuel rail.
  3. E60 oil separator/breather replacement

    Can anyone tell me if it's 'normal' not to have any breather fitted at all? My 535 doesn't and a friends 330d doesn't either. Have these been removed on purpose do you think? Thanks
  4. Buying new clutch and DMF

    I have fitted many clutches and flywheels before and never had a problem with Luk, Valeo or Sachs. I have had issues with ecp though sending kits that have been fitted etc. I now use allparts.
  5. Hi everyone, sorry for another angel eye question I just can't find an answer to my question. I have just just installed this Cree h8 kit on to my car that has adaptive xenons. http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/No-Error-H8-40W-CREE-LED-Angel-Eye-Halo-Light-Bulb-BMW-E82-E90-E92-E60-X5-X6-Z4-/201348571466 All is good and working. My question is I was unsure where to place all the resistor packs etc that are attached to the bulbs, at the moment I have feed them down in to the headlight. I was concerned about heat damage so left them on for a while and they did not get hot. Has anyone had issues with this before or am I worrying over nothing? Many thanks
  6. Angel eye question (sorry!)

    Thanks for the reply. I done the same an tucked the wiring down in the corners it's definitely not touching the heat sink on the led housing. Thanks

  9. Heated seat/pdc button removal on lci

    Lovely thanks for the info
  10. Heated seat/pdc button removal on lci

    Thanks for the link. Is this the same procedure for an lci car though? I already have a set of trim tools so hopefully won't damage anything.
  11. Hi everyone, I have a 2009 e61 535d. I have the pro sat nav with 2009 maps. I brought a 2017 map update and fsc code from Bmw and have tried to update the maps via the USB port in glovebox but nothing happens? It should start straight away I thought? I have plugged my I phone in to the USB port but can't get it to play music through it but it will charge? My only other aux point that I know of is in the rear of the car and is a 3.5mm jack plug which does work. My i drive only shows aux front on the menu nothing about USB? Can an anyone help me please? Thanks

  13. E61 LCI USB sat nav update help

    Yes haven't had a good play with it but it all seems to be that bit sharper and quicker. Maybe it's a placebo effect but it's working!
  14. Service oil recommendations

    I believe you a right it is Mobil oil. I was a Vauxhall technician many years ago and this oil was always well respected then.
  15. Service oil recommendations

    I used gm long life 5w30 LL04 approved. Good oil and cheap
  16. E61 LCI USB sat nav update help

    Hi everyone, just an update on this, I took my to Technosport BMW in north London. He was able to update all my control units without doing the dde and clearing the remap. My USB stick has now uploaded and I have the 2017 maps. Thanks again for the info

  18. Hi everyone, im new to the forum and have tried searching but not come up with anything conclusive and hoped you could all help me. I have recently purchased an e61 09 lci 535d. I am really enjoying the car. I have removed swirl flaps, replaced all vac lines with silicon pipe and checked running temps and all are good. I would like like to remap my car and was thinking about getting the dpf gutted. It's currently not causing any issues but my daily journey involves 10/12 mins motorway journey and 20 mins of traffic, I'm thinking this is not a long enough period for dpf regen? Am i stupid to remove the dpf or should I buy a bypass pipe for cats and dpf and have it remapped? I have a friendly mot tester.... I also plan on mapping out the egr. What are yours thoughts please what with the diesel emissions talk in the press etc. Thanks in advance Dean
  19. 535d with a DDE full of fault codes!

    I'm no expert but the smooth running code you have is more than likely an injector causing your car to run rough. If it's over fuelling this may block the dpf up quicker and I would imagine it's not regening as you have codes for glow plugs which I think can stop a regen. I have also been told the throttle actuator code can stop a regen but I'm not a hundred per cent on this. I'm no expert so take this with a pinch of salt but I would carry out a smooth running test and check your glow plugs and controller. I think rail pressure monitoring can come up if the engine is not cranking at full speed as the fuel pump can't build up the correct pressure. May be worth checking your battery as you also have an ibs code.
  20. E61 lci sat nav update via USB

    Thanks grizzle. Bmw said they would update all my modules for £60 to latest software which is fine but I just don't want to lose the remap. When i asked them if they could just do the sat nav they said no. That's 2 dealers I have tried both said the same.
  21. E61 lci sat nav update via USB

    Does anyone have any ideas where I can get my cic updated around Herts? Thanks
  22. E61 lci sat nav update via USB

    Yes I need to speak to them and ask if they can reflash my car again if the remap goes. I just worry that tinkering with the electronics to much may cause me headaches that I don't have at the moment. It would be nice just to get the cic software updated
  23. E61 lci sat nav update via USB

    Where did you get your cic updated? Bmw want to update the whole car!
  24. Avon tuning

    I have also heard a forced regen is bad and requires an oil change etc afterwards but I can't understand why? All your doing is asking the car to perform a regen like it does itself? Does anyone know any different?
  25. E61 LCI USB sat nav update help

    Thanks for the info, can I ask where are you based and who did you use? BMW have told me they need to update my whole cars software. I'm worried I will lose my remap though as I only want the cic updated. When yours failed the first time do you mean it bricked the module and was then recovered it is it a case of once it's bricked it's game over? Sorry bit slow on the tech talk!
