Great site lads and its been a great source of information so far. Hoping to learn lots about maintaining my car and hopefully pass on any bits I figure out myself. Totally fed up with main dealers at this stage and trying to get more hands on.
I have a 2004 Reg E60 530d. 125000 miles And so far, I've had to deal with the leaking autobox issue,
The boot area holding water and frying the electrics
Recently replaced the main water thermostat & egr stat.
I am about to tackle the swirl flap de flap issue next
Thats all I can think of for now.
Hey everybods. Im Gez, just bought an 04 e61 530 and im having a few issues. Can anyone help with the following......
1. It has xenon headlight that auto level and go round corners sometimes. They keep packing up, it appears that the n/s is pointing low. Also when this happens the green light next to the headlamp switch flashes.
2. If im driving in the day with the automatic headlights on, I sometimes get the battery warning light come on for a few seconds and the headlights come on regardless of how bright it is. The battery warning light then goes off but the headlamps stay on.
3. The drivers window has stopped going all the way up on the 2nd click of the switch and I am getting a window warning light on the dash.
4. The heated rear window isnt working. I have checked the fuse and it is fine. Im not getting any warnings, it simply doesnt work.
Appologies if you have answered these questions before but I cant find any refernce on the forums.
Thanks for your help peeps
