    Hi all Usual E61 high level brake light with LED's not working I've read through a load of old threads and seen many mentions of a replacement at £70 However all I can find are £150+! Have they really gone up in price this much, or am I looking in the wrong places? Many thanks

    my 2006 x5 has the self level suspension inactive message displayed, it has done so for about a year or so but has always gone off the next time the car is started up but for some reason over the last 2 or 3 weeks the message says on all the time. I have checked the relevant fuses which are fine...

    In the last year, I've had some problems with the oil level sensor. The oil level indicator turns yellow ten seconds after the car has started and it stays on for about 10 seconds. Today I went to the garage for an oil service and I asked them to replace the oil sensor. They did it. But...

    My wife's 2011 e90 320d radiator fan kept running after she parked the car. The fan rarely runs. It was a warmish day (40C) but nothing unusual. I checked the coolant level and had to add 500ml to fill it. Put about 100ml in a month ago, first top up for about 12 months. Couldn't see any sign...

    So I've started replacing my oil level sensor (& oil change). I'm uncertain what needs stripping down to change the sensor. Is the sensor located at the back or front of the sump? Am using a trolley jack under the central engine jack point (and additionally some blocks of wood under the side...

    Hi guys As per title... where are the 'Height Level Sensors' or Vertical Level Sensors' on the F11 please? It's odd but I can't find any good reference material (inc. realoem) that gives a detailed location or graphical representation. Thanks Steve

    2006 E64 650i. This has happened a few times recently. From my home (downward sloping toward the house) I drive slowly half a mile and often stop at a set of traffic lights where the road declines SLIGHTLY to the nearside front. After a minute or two the oil level warning system kicks in...

    Morning all, I know it sounds ridiculous, but as per the title how on earth do you check the coolant level? Theres no min max level on the outside of the reservoir, and according to the book there should be something on the inside but again nothing. My coolant looks low but don't want to...
