    Swivelling Towbar Problem

    Post 2014 models of this Westfalia electric towbar are slightly different design. The connection to crossbar is with one very large bolt (compared to 4 smaller bolts on previous version). The motor/gearbox assembly is the same.

    Options for lowering emissions on a 530d?

    Does it make any difference if you can get from Euro 3 to Euro 4?

    M57 from Euro 3 to Euro 6 would require some drastic measures.

    E39 530D no crank no start.

    Or your adapter is internally shorted.

    Taking it to the next level....

    Some nice mods. This was like a wayback machine to 2009 when a friend of mine retrofitted for example HUD to his E60. Back in the day when coding with NCS was not that familiar to anyone. Guys at the local dealership laughed that you are never going to get it working. Oh, yes we did.

    Headlight Adjustment

    Halogen with manual aim levelling or xenon with auto levelling? Have you checked that are no active fault codes for levelling system?

    Ignition Switch Oem brand?

    If you want to buy original parts there usually much cheaper prices than Schmiedmann. These for example. Of course Brexit is a problem if you are ordering in the UK. https://www.bmwautoparts.net/en/ https://www.hubauer-shop.de/en/

    Fuse F114 is mainly for starter activation (Terminal 50) via ignition switch and EWS module. On pre facelift models it also supplies diagnostic connector on engine bay. What did you previously repair on left side junction? Separate the lines leaving from F114 and measure which one of them is shorted.

    E39 Instrument Cluster Repair / New...?

    I second that a used working LCM would be much cheaper. By the way here is the training document where that bus topology picture was taken. http://www.e38.org/bussystem.pdf

    E39 Instrument Cluster Repair / New...?

    Like you have already read more likely K-/I-bus problem than the cluster itself. Are there any trouble codes with diagnostics and is everything else working correctly on the vehicle?

    Permanent temp reading

    Unfortunately not.

    Swivelling Towbar Problem

    What do you mean by melted? That's the original grease with gear parts in it. Take the gears out and check if the gear axle coming from the motor is still OK.

    Cleaning intake on E61 LCI 525d - Forte clean

    So you can calculate how much diesel you could have bought and what's the pay back time for your investment.
