    Fuel injection pump 525TDS

    Tds pumps aren't bad to replace - try an M47TU if you want to know what a bastard is. You do need to carefully mark the pump to the block - it's critical that the pump is refitted exactly as before. One degree out and it'll run like shit. You do need the special tool that holds the chain driven pump gear in place and pushes the pump spindle out. With the tool, I can do a swap in an hour or two. The good old TDS test used to be run 12v to the in tank pump for 10 secs. If the engine starts immediately, the injection pump is fine. More than once these cars have been modified so that the in tank pump is fed directly from the ignition switch, instant priming and it just starts. Run a wire from the pump, under the carpet next to the seats and up under the dash to the ignition switch. Job done. The standard set up on these dinosaurs was that the glow plug relay gave power to the pump whilst cranking, and once started it would switch to power from the alternator. That was the E34 and E36 system, probably the same on the E39. It was designed to cut fuel flow in the event of a crash and the engine stopping. It took me about 2 hours to rewire a mate's 525tds and it started like a charm after that. It was a complete bastard to start before.

    Rusted brake caliper

    Also, replace brake pads when they get down to 4/5mm. The further the pistons are out due to worn pads, the more they'll rust. I've had to replace both calipers on an E46 because the pads were down to 3mm. Pistons as rusty as an old horseshoe.

    Okay, so it's stripped and the shell off to China. Bits: Engine, 4.4 M62TU Vanos unit, c/w loom, starter, alternator, PAS pump etc. £750, less if you want less of the ancillaries. No exhaust manifolds. Gearbox, 5 speed automatic. Fluid looked pretty good and not black death. £250 with t/converter and ECU. Rear Sport Touring Bumper £175 Nav kit, old type with cassette player next to it. £125 for all the bits and wiring cuts. I doubt you'll retro fit but good for spares Rear brakes £50 - almost new rear discs and very good clean calipers and new pads. Alternator £75 - water cooled type. Fan £30 standard electric type, it works. PAS pump £50 Steering box £100, Servotronic type with control relay. AC comp. £40 ABS block £100, reconditioned 002 DSC type. DSC pump £25 Steering wheel £45, M Sport type with big airbag. Presentable but rim leather a bit cracked now. Multifunction type. MAF £30 Fuel pump £20 Phone £30 - the factory BMW phone that fits in the armrest - it's the armrest lid with built in phone, the cable and a module in the boot. It won't work of course because 1999, but it looks cool. Front electric heated memory Comfort leather seats (black). tested and the motors work and they seemed to wear up as well. Front seats, drivers door card with the memory buttons, plugs and loom cuts. AS fair bit of work to fit. These are comfort seats with the adjusting backrests. £150 the pair with the various bits. Rear lights with clear indicators, £40. Radiator, very good cond, looks like a genuine one. £40. Air con condenser, £30 Rear suspension air pump £50 Nothing else.

    Pairing a modern phone to 2005 E61

    Great, cheers! Mine is original 2005 and it just comes up with 'no phone'. The speakers were cutting out as the MULF was faulty, muting the speakers as it thought a call was incoming which of course there wasn't - disconnecting the white plug fixed that but I wanted it to work. The circuit board was reworked to stop that but tbh, as you say the unit is too old now.

    Pairing a modern phone to 2005 E61

    OK, will give it a go. No idea how do do it though - time to RTFM!

    Pairing a modern phone to 2005 E61

    Is it doable? It's a 1/05 built car with the original (non telematics) MULF module. Just wondering if it will pair to an iPhone 6 or newer. Ta.

    Front bumper is non sport and knackered. Only drivers wing is undamaged. I've not seen the car yet so can't say what condition rear bumper/wing is in until late next week.

    Pretty well specced car: Black electric comfort leather with memory Small screen Nav 17 inch BBS style 5's (I'm probably keeping these) 4.4 engine, Vanos, water cooled alternator etc. 5 speed autobox Sport rear bumper Heavy front corner damage. Car will be stripped to a shell next week. Mileage is 155'000 VIN BX98132 Disappointingly, only able to upload the tiniest little pictures. Forum issue? But it's a typical old Biarritz blue shitbox E39, you get the idea.
