    Holding ball joints

    Once cracked I use my impact gun, in and out until it spins off Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Towing electrics

    It has to detect 2 loads when it does bulb checks, a tester may not be enough to do this. If it still does it with a load attached I would be asking what's up with it?
  5. If you can get a stable wifi connection I could do it over remote access as explaining it isn't the easiest thing to do, if you can figure out how to pull the light module file it is easier to edit it in NCS dummy.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    You will find out within weeks, a mate of mine put some happy shopper parts on and within a week a bush tore, soon after that the rubber covers tore open on the ball joints. £480 on Lemforder parts later and a day on my drive using my tools he had it sorted.

    Air suspension modes

    You may find the back starts to drop over a few days if it is in the wrong mode.

    Air suspension modes

    This is just from experience that taking it out of transport mode resets everything needed after tinkering with it Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    This is a good kit m8 https://www.spraymax.com/en-us/products/product/clear-coats-and-spot-blender/headlight-restoration-kit/ Single use though as the 2k clearcoat once activated lasts about 14 hours before the can's gone off.

    Air suspension modes

    Find and delete transport mode, clear all errors and reset the TPS then go for a drive.

    No, they will be shagged within 6 months unless protected.

    Sat Nav / Map Update

    If you have a spare USB stick I have a file that should pull the needed details to generate a lifetime code for free. Extract this to a blank USB and put it in the USB you use to upload, turn the ignition on and let the sat nav load, give it a minute and see if anything is on the stick.. copie_scr.zip

    Correct method to drain coolant

    I never go near that bloody thing, it's easier to take the hose off. For the time involved I would take the rad out the car, it's really easy and then you can see what you're doing and pull the plug out then replace it (red rubber grease the o rings) Bonus is you can get the hose pipe in the rad and give it a good clean out.
  14. Looking at the diagram you have a 0.75mm red with yellow stripe connected to fuse F64 in the rear. I would start there. If you can read wiring diagrams this PDF should make sense. Xps Document.pdf
  15. Can I have the last 7 digits of you chassis number so I can try to find a wiring diagram?

    Active headlights - inactive

    It likes to use a fog light at 7 volts so you still have 2 bulbs per side.

    I know, whoever thought of that, both genius and you f'kin twat rolled into one.

    Active headlights - inactive

    The car cuts out the same light on the other side if it can to make it look normal, no help when trying to find it

    Active headlights - inactive

    You were lucky, the light module normally blocks the circuit until it's reset.
  20. Test the wiring loom for the controller m8 Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Another Cooling Issue

    By binning the egr stat and linking the pipe together you have bypassed the main stat now feeding cooled water into the engine block, you need to plug that pipe and the cheap way is solder ring end stops as they are a perfect fit in the pipe https://www.screwfix.com/p/solder-ring-stop-ends-15mm-2-pack/39404 Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I would do the gearbox mount first or as well m8, how's the prop flexi?

    spray washer jets

    E60 fit, they are sort of a twin and fan in one effort but you can also get ford fan ones in by trimming off a little bit.

    Coolant woes help

    As I said earlier m8, the correct way is to use a vacuum coolant filling system that draws a vacuum and technically would remove most of the fluid when you pull a vacuum, the flush solution would remove the rest and again need drawing out before filling with coolant. To me a complete faff considering the G48 lasts 4-5 years anyway.
