  1. Errors - fuel?

    They're a 'lifetime' filter (in the tank I think) and aren't available from the usual places. I vote for fuel pump.
  2. TOOLS

    Got myself a bargain here. Let's play spot the difference. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Astro-40SL-Lumen-Rechargeable-Light/dp/B018R0XQPA https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B079HRXHPZ So cheap, I got two
  3. Changed stat - now no hot air.

    If when you get the car back you can hear water circulating when you're in the cabin, You have air in the system.
  4. Changed stat - now no hot air.

    Another diesel with a dodgy stat. If this place was busier, I reckon you oil burners would have your own subforum for your stat issues. Your mechanic didn't install the stat upside down did he?
  5. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    The leak sealer was added by vacuum, I guess I could pour some UV dye into the leak sealer canister and repeat the process. Whilst I had the code scanner hooked up, and the system flat out on cold, the compressor refrigerating capacity was at 54% I thought it would be working harder than that, perhaps the outside temp wasn't high enough.
  6. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I haven't got the equipment to add that, I used a halfrauds style kit. The leak sealer hopefully did it's job, if not I'll get the sniffer and get it professionally looked at.
  7. E60 wind deflectors

    Cheers. I think the wind deflectors suit it.
  8. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Purchased a set of MV2s from ebay to be winter wheels as they were very reasonably priced. Checked out my air con with the code reader and everything seems to be working as it should
  9. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Cheers for that. I've got one of those or a variant of it. I'll dig it out. I've misplaced my carly adaptor which would have been useful too.
  10. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I won't, but the cooling isn't frosty enough. Ebay do a leak detector for £23, I might get one and have a play. Maybe have a proper recharge if all is well.
  11. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Potentially fixed my air con leak. The system was completely empty and the kit told me not to attempt to charge it. I went ahead and charged it anyway until it hit the green on the gauge, and then swapped over to a can of leak sealer. The system sucked in the leak sealer and I swapped back to the refrigerant and emptied the canister. I checked the pressure this morning and it's still in the green I'm now getting colder air, but not anything approaching icy. I'll monitor pressures over the next week and perhaps get some more refrigerant if the leak has sealed.
  12. OBD2 Port Draining Battery

    I thought all OBD ports were all permanently live
  13. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Discovered the air con has a leak
  14. E60 CCC Android system upgrade

    You'll be slightly limited. Your head unit is probably running Android 4.4 and you need to have compatible apps. If you install the latest apps and try updating your existing ones, you'll run into trouble and have to reset the head unit and start from scratch again.
