  1. Read the pdf. It might physically fit. If it does it will need to be coded after it's fitted otherwise you will have a fail-safe active on it so only reverse gear and forward third gear engage all the time. If you do decide to go with it let us know how it goes as this would be an upgrade for a 6hp26. 6HP28 has paddle shifters available so it would be wise to get the steering wheel retrofitted as well with a heated steering wheel itself( I checked the module on my car, it has a coding option on the module available for the heated steering wheel and paddles) SAT_DIY.pdf

    @Miked23 how much you paid for the heated seats? Does the control module had 2 or 3 connections at the back? The option you are looking for are in 4 modules. When you choose the ECU list it's 4 letters long. I can't remember what exactly but I can find out tonight best thing would be to add the VO/FA save t to CAS and LMA and then default code the seat modules control unit as I can see you have the CCC so it needs to know you have the heated seats and you could change on the screen what seat parts need less or more heat. I can get the the FA/VO number tonight.. I know a power and Earth wire also need to be routed... Somewhere.. haven't had a real chance to look at it as I have to do the gearbox rebuild first..
  3. Do that, you will feel the difference. Even if you go for a longer journey it will help to learn them faster. You don't have to drive more than 70mph for it to learn. If you have scenic route nearby with lot of hills it's even better. A bit more gas on the uphill then coast it untill you reach about 40ish and then gentle on the brakes then brake untill you reach about 10mph(it learns brake clutch adaptions) Take a picture of adaptions before and after you reset them.

    You have two actual faults stored. Where it's says "Not present" it's saved in a memory. Like Andrew said check the battery with multimeter if possible when the car is runing and when it's been parked for 12-24hrs. Take a look at the aux water pump, the power wires to it might have corrosion on them, if not on autodoc there is a 28% discount now. You can get it new for £59.33. Article number: 0899085 CID... Check the wires behind the CCC or display itself. Sometimes it's shows on mine as well, but it was to do with the coding.

    @Misterbish check the adaptions in about a month or so. Should be +-5mbr difference(wild guess at the moment)

    Exactly @Tuvoc there are many variables. I bought a high mileage car, but I wouldn't bought it if it was used mostly in town/city. I got mine from the guy who was using it to travel between the Dublin-Newry-Belfast so it's mostly motorway miles. I think it had 165k miles on it when I bought it. I reached another milestone yesterday. See image. @dirtydirtydiesel I would suggest you do the oil change or oil flush. Once you tow a caravan your adaptions will change. Your gearbox will adapt to it. Once you change the oil check the old sump for any date on it. Yours should be changed at least once already as E clutch hasn't reached the 750mbar yet.

    Yeah study the manual throughout to see what kind of tools you need. I mentioned it at the first post that you need a small torque wrench to do it correctly. P.s. 535d usually have a gearbox mount at the end of it. It needs to me lowered(supporting the gearbox) or removed in order to remove the mechatronics seal(where the cable plugs in) if you don't see any leaks around it... It would be easier just to leave it where it is. Really hard to get it removed. I left it in there.

    @Haych you should be able to rent a lift at one of your local garages(if they aren't really busy)and they should be able to provide you with the tools. That would be the best option. Also you would need a diagnostics attached to it to measure the oil temperatures. Theoretically you could lift the front and remove the mechatronics, but it's better to do it at some garage. Also what I noticed. My local garage has a snap-on tool for diagnostics. It can measure and reset the adaptions + register the oil change. Enquire about it at few local garages, and yes... Expect to hear "oh.. you read that on Internet, did you?"

    They are spot on. Two of them are small ones and two longer ones are different sizes.

    Had a chance to do a diagnostic on a 06 535d with 71k miles on it. Well well well. clutch E shows symptoms of wear.... P.S. to save the file as small as possible and to save some space, do a screenshot on PC and then just paste it in a Paint. Trim to fit and instead of ~3Mb file size, it drops to almost ~230kb with decent image quality. No need to find an external photo hosting site.

    I used this, but I bought it at the local car parts store for 15 quid as I needed it now and then. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F390974104414 if anybody can find a larger capacity one then it's even better as 200ml would be quite a lot of hustle and would take more time...

    I know, I was confused as well, but I went for the option C as it engages all the gears and you can't drive off in M/S mode using higher gear than the 2nd gear(you can start moving off without using the first gear, especially true for 535 without excessive wheelspin) not too sure about the original software version, as I have the latest one. So only way of engaging all the gears would be if the car is off the ground.

    6hp26 oil change procedures. You MUST do everything it says!!! Few tips: You won't be able to change the gears manually all the way to the 6th. You would have to spin the wheels in air to do so, so if the car is on jack's.... well, not the safest option. Also you need to dissable the DSC before you do that. Light at the dash might stay on once you have all four wheels on the ground, the car needs to be driven few meters untill it resets automatically. It might be difficult to tighten the oil fill screw. Practice few times to screw/unscrew it without touching the exhaust pipe as it will get hot. Don't save on the torque wrench. I bought the "Devil" brand. You need to tighten the bolts to the specific torque. The bigger capacity syringe you will buy the less refils you will have to do. Don't drive harsh after you have changed the oil, there are specific procedure how to "run in" the gearbox after adaption reset, but you would have to use the runway in order to do so... It could take about a week of daily driving for a gearbox to adjust to your style of driving. Most of the stuff i know comes from the service manuals and my own experience, so it's not like I make them up in my head.... Just to be clear. si-zf-si-oelwechselkit-50145-en.pdf

    Depends on the year it's made, mileage, previous service done to the car and build quality. I need to see the adaptions.

    Can't find it on their web site, only ebay brings up some stuff for 6hp26 but nothing at that price... http://www.ebaystores.co.uk/asapgearboxparts/_i.html?_nkw=6hp26&submit=Search&_sacat=asapgearboxparts&_sid=1648107525 there is a kit, but it costs £70.00
