    e61 520d rear shaft replacement

    ah right ok! ill see if i can do it on my mates ramp then! ive had the engine out of it recently, so i recon everything will come undone ok. i think the shafts are right, i had a quick squint under the car and checked but thankyou!
  3. is it true you can change both shafts with out removing the exhaust? if so that would be a lot easier than the e39 i had! thanks

    bmw e61 520d glow plug problem

    yes, ive just found that and been out and checked it, unplugged the wire tot he alti and put it back on again. car started ok but ista is still showing the fault. now, the car does start ok now, so im going to leave it an hour and see what its like. before it sounded really bad when i started it but after the initial start it was ok. thanks
  6. Ive just done the swirl flaps on my 2008 520d , and it runs fine, but its not working the glow plugs any more, i get an error of 004A74 lin/bsd, message , perheating control unit missing 004A79 lin/bsd, message, preheating control unit missing. im guessing i may have not plugged something back in or ive disturbed something, can anyone help as i cant see anything obvious. thanks

    Anyone got INPA for N47 engine?

    my e39 was a 2000 year, it was m52b25 when i got it. its probably the cable then. ive ordered a silver one from ebay , and it lists the e60, the blue one i have lists e39 etc so maybe that is the problem. thanks

    Anyone got INPA for N47 engine?

    my brother did something with the ports, before at the insert bmw cable part, i put the cable in and windows made a noise, and also when i unplugged it. Now when it comes up for insert the cable, it does the noise and it recognises there is a cable there. It did some windows update install software thing. I plugged it into the bmw and cant read anything. Its the blue cable and the red light came on. its a 2008 e61 lci 520d

    Anyone got INPA for N47 engine?

    so i have got a little further, i ve got inpa working as in it comes up with the models of car, it recognises there is a cable plugged into the computer, but at no point can i get it to see that the ignition is on. I think there is a comunication problem. I think tis the right cable, its the one for the e39 i got from jimmy. is that right? thanks

    Anyone got INPA for N47 engine?

    well my brother took 2 days to get windows working, update after update. THen instialled the software, inpa is there but it has no types of car when you open it up. So the software does work, just i think needs some other set up stuff. Ista does open up, and its quite slow, but dosnt do anything much. I think the cable is not being recognised by the usb port some how. I know about BBC micros, and thats about it for me, just seems a lot of hard work to get a program to read a few error codes!.

    tailgate randomly opens

    believe it or not! someone had the bootlid catch off before and when they put it back on, they trapped one of the wires in the housing so when i moved the rear wiper, it opened the boot. Took me a few mins to work out what was going on lol! which side of the boot are the wires for the window? thanks
