    ZF 6hp26 oil change

    Thanks @Biotoxic I had meant to post in that other thread but couldn't find it. I'm obviously not worried about failure (at the moment) as my adaptations are within normal limits and I know it will still function even outside them. There's nothing special about the car and if the box fell out of it today I'd probably be out looking for a replacement car (not box) tomorrow. If I interpret your post correctly then you're suggesting the negative values/less pressure required in the clutches coincides with my assumption of it being the original oil (the now abrasive filled oil). If so then an oil change and reset might result in the values going to the positive side to compensate for some wear in the clutches. Have I got that right? I'm not asking you to commit to that, I'm just thinking out loud, and trying to educate myself a bit better Keliuss

    Thought it might be better to overlay the limits*. Obviously my values are all within expected limits, but the whole idea of maintenance is to maintain things within spec and change out wearable parts before they go out of spec, not after. I just don't have the experience to know enough on this subject though. My inclination is to leave it be. Take another adaptation snapshot in six months maybe. *grey boxes were taken from ZF manual and inserted into image. If anyone can interpret any indications from this I'd be grateful. All the fill pressures are on the negative side. Is this good/bad/normal etc?? Keliuss

    Apparently as the clutches wear you effectively end up with abrasive in the oil which aids clutching, but it sounds like a double edged sword with regards to the rest of the box. Keliuss

    Get the F30 wheel specs from http://wheel-size.com/size/bmw/ then use https://www.willtheyfit.com/ to compare Keliuss

    Hi @Biotoxic I've still got my gearbox service (6HP19) on the long finger. Then you hear the occasional horror story after a service and wonder if you should just leave it alone. Car is currently at 140k miles and no reason to suspect the box has been serviced. No issues at present. What do you make of those values? Keliuss

    How to turn off passenger airbag

    Get your owners manual out then. I think the above pic was an optional extra. There's a section in the manual about child seat detection. Keliuss

    Pic is from the web but I'm sure I have this in mine. Keliuss

    Speed bumps damage

    Always found my E39 went over any speed bump like a hovercraft compared to my current E60. In the E39 the faster over the hump the smoother it was. Keliuss

    M57 3.0d maf readings

    Site sponsor @jimmy at cableshack can help you out. I recently suggested him to new member @Miked23 and Miked was recommending jimmy's services in this thread Setting up the software is not that bad tbh. Keliuss

    M57 3.0d maf readings

    MAF values are not something I've looked into much to be honest but a quick google suggests my readings are high. Should be around 5g/s at idle. Perhaps I should take the Torque readings with a pinch of salt. INPA will give a better idea if you have it, but the readings will be in a different unit, per cylinder I think. Keliuss

    M57 3.0d maf readings

    If it's of any use to you, my MAF reads 12.5g/s at idle. N47 2l so it's never going to match but I wouldn't have thought it would be so divergent if both are good. So mine is low or yours high. Hopefully a few M57 owners can chime in with more readings for proper comparison. I've no running issues at present and used Torque for the readings. Keliuss

    520d M47 revamp

    Possibly. I've not had enough experience with them but I'd still try find out the correct way to get it to regen and give that a shot. You just might bring it back from the brink. Won't cost you anything to try. Keliuss
