  1. Yep that's the DSC pressure sensor.. No codes need to be cleared - once the values return to within tolerance the fault should clear. I'd say one of them has gone again. I was told to replace them in pairs - if one goes the other won't be far behind and it's not worth the labour twice. That's what I did. To be sure, get the codes read again. If DSC sensor still comes up - one of them needs replacing again. This time bite the bullet and buy new from BMW. Not worth risking a 2nd hand one failing again as you may find..
  2. Which brake pressure sensors did you change? Do you mean DSC pressure sensors? They're attached to the brake master cylinder and are around £100 each for proper items which you can ONLY buy from BMW. If we're talking about the same ones, which ones did you replace with? If you bought from BMW - get them to re-test the sensors. If you bought Chinese eBay specials or used ones - they're probably knackered again. I replaced mine with genuine BMW ones a while ago now, no issues since. Steep at £200 for the pair but no point scrimping if replacements fail so often
  3. Considering how dead this forum is these days - have you asked on one of the Facebook groups? They're massively active these days so hopefully someone should be able to offer a solution. Starting to feel like there's only 5-6 of us on this entire forum these days.
  4. That's the extent of my petrol knowledge then! 😂 Fingers crossed you get it sorted mate! Hope someone more knowledgeable can offer insight..
  5. Have you had the codes read? By no means a petrol expert but sounds like a dodgy coil pack? If it was fuel related i'd expect it to do it all the time. As it's only sometimes it makes sense (to me) that it's something on the ignition side that's failing. I'd replace the spark plugs anyway. Not sure how you'd find which coil needs changing? Would it show up in diagnostics?
  6. Does on the 330d. The pulley has a rubber centre hence why they always fall apart on the 330d.. lol. Could be something knocking the rack as it moves maybe?
  7. Lol. Yip - this forum is pretty much dead now.. There's probably 4-5 of us left and that's it. lol. Oh well... Mate of mine has a 2011 E350Cdi - nice car! Wonder if you can get the gearbox mapped to change gears better?
  8. No problem. Just be careful, I did the same but the fault returned after a short while. If it does then they will need replacing. Get the codes read to confirm though - could be the ABS rings on the rear driveshafts that have corroded
  9. momo

    Ive got a list

    Give Nick Jupp a bell - he's a BMW breaker in Swanley. Really nice guy and knows his stuff.. Always provides top quality parts and usually has everything in stock. He's also not the type of guy to wrap it in one layer of bubble wrap then wonder why it arrived in 15 pieces. He properly packs things to the point where sometimes it can be a PITA to just get to the part you ordered! lol. Contact details on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/nick.jupp.5
  10. Pretty sure they're incompatible.. Completely different drivetrains as far as I know..
  11. Brake pads wouldn't be standard on any service. It's usually an extra
  12. Does the power steering still work when it happens? I know it could be difficult to tell when at speed.. Have you checked PAS fluid levels? If it matches engine speed i'd say it's something on the belt drive (hence asking about power steering). So either Power steering pump, water pump, crank pulley, tensioners or AC pump.
  13. Apologies for the basic question.. But does it have the purple tag on it? The 067 racks have a different part number - 7852974679 As per: The part number you gave comes back with normal rack results, with no purple tag..
  14. Yep, I get you. But again, nothing M3 about them. lol They were an option on normal models but just standard on the M3 so I get what you mean. Agree though - look a million times better than a crappy reflector bowl.. They're MASSIVE on the E46!
