    F11 air suspension

    @gazzago Did you ever get to the bottom of your issue as I have a very similar one with my F11. Replaced both bags with Aerosus and the valve block as someone had stripped the thread on one connector. It looks like the car is to high. The readings I get on ISTA show it is way out as well. Anyway interested in what your issue was please.

    Spacer on air suspension

    Old post. However, did aerosus come back to anyone i rang them today and the chap on the phone was clueless as to the spacers being needed or not!

    Swivelling Towbar Problem

    Just tried the initialisation sequence and it seems to be the locking at the end of travel that is the issue. If I do the initialisation sequence and hold the button in whilst it lowers it seems to lock in postion but is red on the button and dash. However, it does stay down and at the end of it's travel. It seems very solid and when pressed again in retracts ok whilst flashing red. I then tried a short press and it is back to the original fault gets to the bottom of its travel briefly locking then flashes red and returns up. Reading the manual it states the red means the head is not properly locked. So what determines if it is locked or not I assume some kind of microswitch or reed switch. Would anyone know the location or point me to a diagram of the switch?

    Swivelling Towbar Problem

    Thank you for the reply. The unit flashes green until fully extended. When fully extended it never goes green, it goes straight to red and retracts immediately. It worked fine when the vendor showed me, and as you mentioned, also the same as the handbook. It feels like it locks as well when holding it, but I don't want to put to much pressure on it, as it is only stationary for about 2 seconds. I have checked all the boot area for water and it is dry. I also have a non working luggage cover so was in there most of yesterday. Would you recommend where to find any information on where modules are located. Particularly what each fuse does?

    F11 load cover won't raise on tabs

    Did this ever get resolved as I have this issue.

    Swivelling Towbar Problem

    I just bought a F11 530d and the vendor showed me the tow bar all worked well. Now when I tried to drop it it goes all the way down to the bottom then returns immediately with the red illuminated on the switch. The iDrive says tow bar failed to lock. I cannot find anyone else having this issue in the forums. Before i strip it does anyone have any advice or diagrams? Especially how it LOCKS in positions. I'm hoping a clean and grease up will do the trick.
