E34 525i Engine Compartment Diagram

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have an engine bay diagram for a 525i - labelled aerial diagram indicating what everything is?  There's a lot more equipment under the bonnet of my 525i compared to my 520i and can't find a useful guide anywhere!

 

PS mine is actually a 525iX

 

Thanks

Take a look at the attached.

 

1 520i Engine Bay

2 525iX Engine Bay

3 525iX Driver Side

4 525iX Pass' Side

 

What are the orange connectors and units?  What is the black unit above the orange unit and the windscreen wash tank?

Excellent thanks.  Mine is 6/93 so it figures.  All part of my attempts to identify a deadlocking fault, so have been checking all relays, fuses and modules for corrosion etc.  All seems to be working fine though so back to the drawing board.

locks bouncing is it? sticky actuator? duff actuator in filler cap? sticky boot actuator? fuses under the back seat? door strikers?

I suspect it's either one of the door shuts or one of the actuators.  GCM and Relay under the rear seat are working and all fuses fine. Slow process of elimination!
