    ZF 6hp26 oil change

    Wow, That is cheap That should be around my price if the mechanic has got the labour time right but I suspect not. They charge £60 per hour + vat, He's quoted two hours labour but the general consensus is four. This would make my total bill £535 which is right about what everyone else has quoted within £35 each way. I'll let you all know after I pick it up.

    East Midlands mate, The BMW indie is A46 BMW just outside of Melton Mowbray, The kit came from auto_trans_tech off ebay for £246.96 posted & it's all genuine ZF stuff, the seller that Misterbish bought from would take over ten days to get to me. Only £20 Something cheeper, but my indie could get me in next Wednesday so I needed it a.s.a.p

    Haych, I have been procrastinating over this since I bought my car six week & 1500 miles ago, After a chat with GoNz0 off here I have decided to bite the bullet & get it done. I have purchased a complete genuine ZF service kit including the bridge seal & four sleeve seals for £247.00 delivered & my local BMW indie is doing the work next Wednesday for £144.00 all in for labour. Not worth groveling round underneath it on my driveway on axle stands for that money. + they've done loads of these so know what there doing.

    Battery size / Ah / CCA

    I agree but mine is a daily driver & the Varta battery I have fitted came with a five year guarantee.

    How to tell if car is doing DPF regen?

    Not from my experience, mine are black & sooty but the D.P.F is still there abelt clogged up Due to lack of regens, how do I know. Courtesy of GoNz0.

    Thanks guys, As in other posts, my battery is suspect & I have a new one waiting to be fitted. Just waiting for some dry weather. Thanks for the info on the codes, I will fit & register / code the new battery, clear the DTC's & take it from there. I am not overly worried about the aux pump now I know it's just for when you're parked up without the engine running, but after up to temp. Would be nice one day but need the cash for other things on it at the moment.

    Keliuss, Thanks for that link bud, I will hold off on everything until I have registered & coded my new battery. I have all those symptoms ie: Trip / clock / heated rear window / i-drive not working / SOS message.

    E61 530D battery died.

    As Clavurion has said, as I understand it. Yes you can swap for a new battery like for like, without coding BUT you will drastically Shorten the battery life. If you swap from std to AGM or vise versa or increase or decrease any values you must register & code it.

    Hi Keliuss, I don't know, all I do know is my screen is blank & does nothing.

    Evening all, So basically I would like to know if you can swap the CCC twin disc unit out of my 2006 e61 For the later CIC unit from 2009 onwards, without doing anything else. Will it work? Is it an upgrade? More reliable / robust? The reason for my question is my CCC unit is dead, I was going to send it off for repair to M.C.A in Romania Now they have brilliant feed back / review's & are a good price at 200€ no matter the problem but Insured postage to cover a new replacement is £75.00 I've had a qiuck look on eBay & can get a CIC unit used for £300.00 posted. Thought's please.
