Can anyone direct me to a visual "how-to" thread for replacing this sensor - I'm not familiar with the removal of the inlet manifold and dont know if it has to come off to get access to the sensor - any ideas?
1999 E38 M52TU -replacing the throttle position sensor
Having reset all errors this "throttle position sensor" is the one that comes back. Have now taken the throttle off and done a visual inspection and clean - all looked ok so I re-installed - no joy engine goes straight to limp mode. I have now purchased a replacement from a local breaker and will fit next weekend. In the meantime - Does anyone know how to check the potentiometer resistance readings or replace the potentiometer inside?
