    Hi all? HELP !!!!
    If any body could help me locate the yaw sensor on this model as looked at A pillar , B pillar, under driver seat etc and no avail to find. I'm pulling me hair out trying to find. I've got Stability control light up & yellow caution lamp up on instrument cluster and scanner showing yaw rate sensor electrical fault code 5E,38/E0. Was wondering if it's under passenger seat instead, hopefully their someone that's came across this fault before. Please please can someone help!!!!!

    yaw sensor>> AKA rotation sensor>> AKA speed sensor.. people often get this mixed up with the lateral acceleration sensor and vice versa, which are 2 different sensors! often wrongly identified with each others names to them, one is (yaw or speed sensor) is under the passenger side seat carpets, the other (lateral accelleration sensor) is behind the plastic trim on the "A" pillar passenger side (UK cars)..

    ide make sure which one you actually need as ppl and garages who diagnose the DSC or ASC problems often get these sensors mixed up aswell by using the wrong identification and name...
    330i sport a big chunk of berlin...

    also look at the wiring diagrams , as they give you location and wireing colours so you can double check befor replacing them . if you are replacing them are you going to callibrate them ?
