    Rear brake overhaul

    I would recommend ATE parts. They also offer a spring set for hand brakes. I wouldn't touch the hand brake cables unless there is something really wrong with them. It's a real pain to remove the rear end of the cable core from hub. And also very tight guiding the cables under heat shields.

    ABS warning light on - no codes

    If they are both ASC or DSC then you can swap the module for test purposes. If you want to do it permanently the module should be coded. If they are DSC then steering angle sensor will need to be initialised anyways.

    Retrofit rear parking sensors

    No coding needed for center console button assembly. The early versions with rear only PDC did not have the button. The system is just activated with reverse signal and dropped off when speed increased over 30 km/h.
  4. Have you set the COM port (virtual) settings correctly?

    Retrofit rear parking sensors

    You will need sensors, PDC module, acoustic generator and wiring loom. Module is connected to I-/K-bus where it gets the reverse activation signal. You can use the older (black) 4 sensor module with 2 connectors or the newer (white) 8 sensor module with 3 connectors. If you use the newer one it needs to be coded to 4 sensor (rear only) mode but in this you can also add the button on center console to activate / turn off the system. Acoustic generator and module is located above battery. https://www.pss-autosoft.net/diagrams/bmw/release/en/zinfo/E39_EH40B.htm https://www.pss-autosoft.net/diagrams/bmw/release/en/zinfo/E39_EA81B.htm

    Oops !

    No need to remove undertray just the corner parts. Drive the front wheels on wood blocks first so it's easier to fit a trolley jack under the front subframe lifting point. But at this point there is no need to put it on stands anyway for bumper removal.

    In need of an original map file

    Easier to start fresh and have the software updated with original BMW software.

    E60 530D Specs

    A vehicle that age can be EU3 (without DPF) or EU4 (with DPF). (Though I think they both were specked the same power.) Have you checked your additional equipment with VIN?

    520i Touring Suspension warning light

    Check your vehicle specs with VIN if it had self levelling suspension from the factory, they all did not. Has this problem just occured or has it been like this as long as you have owned it?

    BMW E61 530D 2004 WONT START

    Nice that you told us the result. Did the ECU have corrosion damage?

    E39 dash cam wiring

    Use any of the empty slots on fuse panel. The voltage rail side socket is there. Just measure which one is switched voltage. Get a double leaf terminal from BMW for the other side of the empty fuse slot.

    E39 dash cam wiring

    Do you have sunroof and where are you planning to install the camera? Do you want it permanently live or via ignition switch?
  13. Correct. KW = kalenderwoche

    Thermostat failure

    Mahle, Behr and Hella are since August 2018 all part of Mahle Group. These parts are identical. And in this case all the same made in Italy stuff. Also previous OEM filter manufacturers Hengst and Knecht are all part of Mahle Group.
