  1. go for a drive and bed them in. The pads need to be bed in and shed the top surface before they properly start mating to the disc.

    Bmw 530d starting issue

    The system auto bleeds. After replacing the fuel filter you turn on the ignition (but do not start the car) and let the car sit for a moment or 2. You should then have no air in the fuel system. This worked fine on my E61 & also on an E46 as well.
  3. Worse case scenario, BMW are £170 and its pre-coded to your car.

    Reversing pdc pushed in

    if its on the left, it should be open and you can do it with the bumper on. I have one that does move occasionally (2nd in from the left) and i push it back out from under the bumper.

    if its on the right, you only need to drop the undertray that covers the compressor.

    Huawei phone in a f10

    TBH you're better off not using it. I'm guessing you already have it bluetooth connected to your car, the only extra this provides is charging. Which you can with the power socket & a cable.

    525D Automatic - Injectors cleaner

    Probably all the same TBH, it's all marketing about what perks all their premium fuels have. On standard fuels my car used to get better from Esso than Shell (5% difference) so there's never much in it.

    Good fuel is the best stuff to use. Once in a while (depending how often you fill up) run some premium fuel in the car. The detergents and chemicals added in by Shell/BP/Esso will have a better effect on the whole system.

    remote key

    not really when you consider a brand new key programmed to the car is £170 direct from BMW. The kit for coding is probably fairly pricey, so you would only buy it to make money because you wouldn't buy it just to code one key . . . .

    DPF backpressure reading 0

    Is there a default/fail safe distance or time frame it uses in case of sensor error?

    Wrong sidelight/angel eye bulbs

    unfortunately not. When i was looking for LED options, all of them were the ones with the separate ballast which i didn't want. So i settled for the bulbs instead.

    Single rear tail light turned on - how?

    that's it, just push it down or up (if you were activating the indicator, as opposed to the 3 blinks). As above, the purpose is to keep your car visible on an unlit road if it was parked up, or you had broken down.

    Single rear tail light turned on - how?

    it'll leave the front and rear side lights on, so if you're parked/stopped on an unlit road the car is still noticeable.

    Does a front side light stay on too? Can only think it's the parking lights that you're accidentally activating.
