    Blowers A/C speeds up and down.

    There is a huge shortcut you can take if you are willing to place 2 cuts on some of the ducting and tape it up later. You can save yourself a lot of work. I've done this job and I've seen that guide, but it's total overkill. Bear in mind that mine is an LCI so might be slightly different. I didn't remove the center console, or any trim pieces in either footwell. I went straight in and removed the radio/heater controls area of the dash only. Piece number 1 is the ducting that runs down the center console. Normally, it has to come out to remove piece number 2, which allows the fan shroud (3) to be removed. However.... Make 2 cuts roughly where the red lines are on piece number 1 and you can fold the thin plastic ducting back towards you and remove piece 2. I used some insulating tape to repair it later. You can loop the tape under it prior to re-inserting piece 2, which will help secure it better. There are ducting pieces to the left and right just visible in the pic. These can also be removed and refit (a little awkwardly) via this opening in the dash. No need to remove more trim pieces in footwells. Keliuss
  2. If @Clavurion said it's a straight swap then my money would be on it being a straight swap. He knows what he's talking about. Keliuss

    There's a few guides on removing them if you google. Mine are just a tad dull, not flaking, and I've considered removing them for a respray. It doesn't look like a major job to remove them. Keliuss

    Were you able to get it started or get any codes read? On a side note I'm thinking out load that it would make for a lovely long term keeper (weekend car), but you're obviously looking for a daily driver. Pity, as the price is peanuts. Keliuss

    Trump, like him or loath him?

    I admit to being a Trump fan but not in the traditional sense. I love finding out what is the latest stupid thing he has said or done lol. So I guess that makes me a fan. It's all just hilarious to be a spectator. I'm also something of a Brexit fan too, because that car crash is also great fun for the outside observer. Ooops, don't want to derail the thread. Anyway Trump said: "So interesting to see 'progressive' Democrat congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world" Everyone knows who he's talking about and three of the four come from the USA. Born and bred. So if they originally came from USA then isn't he talking about his own government? Simples. Keliuss

    LCI angel eye bulbs for xenon unit

    I think it switches to the lower setting when the dipped headlights are on. So when using angel eyes only, they are on full power. Keliuss

    E61 09 plate Air Con Condenser - Removal / Fitting ?

    Can't answer your query, but if you deal with a garage that know what they're doing the 1st thing they do is test for a leak. I'm not an authority on the subject but I've read it is illegal to regas a system without first checking for leaks. Keliuss

    Loss of power 520d e60 lci

    First thing I would check is error codes. Many issues log codes that are useful for diagnostics. Only major errors illuminate the EML lights on the dash. Keliuss

    Cleared one code now got another.

    Ok, those temps (68) were probably normal then, and unrelated anyway to your issue. It's just that those exact temps are very common when thermostats fail on these engines. Anyway, back to your issue. Inconclusive. Obviously if it had behaved as I said mine does we could say it's ok, but it doesn't and I don't know if that's normal or not. Maybe someone with more experience of M47 engines can contribute. Keliuss

    For how long had you been driving when you took those screenshots? Coolant should be about 90-93C once warmed up. I had issues with my turbo where the small linkage between the actuator and VNT lever had seized up. A wiggle and a drop of hi-temp grease fixed it, and probably would have lasted but I replaced the linkage as it was about €12 from a main dealer. Perhaps you had a similar issue. Does the actuator cycle when you lock/unlock the with the remote? Keliuss

    That's the battery connector on the car. Not the Halfords battery Keliuss

    520d Electrical woes. Help please!!

    I don't think the Halfords jobbie is AGM though. I assume not, so think it gets coded as standard lead-acid. (B090 BATT_90AH //90 Ah-Batterie) Keliuss

    I assumed the M47 had a vacuum operated actuator. Anyway, if the electronic one is disconnected (power) it can be moved by hand. I would not attempt this while it has the cable connected whether you think it's powered or not. On my LCI car, if you lock/unlock the car with the bonnet open you can see and hear the actuator cycling, as if it is initializing. Even without the key in the ignition the actuator is powered and if you try to move it you can feel it "fighting" back, so don't. Check to see if you are getting this startup movement, but I can't say definitively if your pre-LCI should do this. Keliuss

    I never had any problems with my wife's M47 so can't give experienced advise, and my N47 has the electronic actuator, but when it's disconnected from the turbo, it is very easy to push/pull the lever on the turbo that opens/closes the vanes. Keliuss
