    I’ll be driving my 2001 325i and all of the sudden it feels like the drivers side front wheel grabs for a second and then lets go. Then the yellow dash DSC and “Brake” light will come on and stay on until I shut the car off. They usually reset. Occasionally, when driving, the yellow DSC light...

    Hi, Hope someone can help. I have to replace my eccentric shaft sensor and I'm looking at some used ones on eBay. There appear to be two different types though both are allegedly suitable for the N46 engine. The obvious differences between the two are that on the back one has a small square...
