Hi guys,

checked the forum, there are lots of threads about how to reset the OBC about service or inspection interval indicator, and I managed to reset the service interval indicator after a DIY oil change last week.

There is also indicator for brake fluid renewal, my shows 08.12 and a clock symbol. My understanding is that my brake fluid should be changed back in Dec 2008 and it is over due. So I have my cars brake fluid changed by local garage yesterday, but as they are not BMW specialist, so they didn't reset the brake fluid indicator.

Can anyone tell me how to reset the brake fluid renewal indicator.

Thanks in advance.

Something like this.

1. Ignition key to position 0 (off)
2. Hold trip meter button (the left button)
3. Ignition key to position 1. The display will show: "test 1"
4. Keep holding the trip meter button until the the display shows: "reset inspection" or "reset oilservice"
5. Release the button
6. Press and release the tip meter buton once. The Display will show the square clock symbol and the month the fluid change is overdue on.
7. Press and hold the trip meter button until the display is showing a flashing "reset". Then release the button. "Reset" will keep flashing.
8. Presss and release the trip meter button once. The display will show the square clock symbol and the month for the next fluid change in 2 years time
9. Press and hold the trip meter until "End" is displayed
10. Let go of the button and turn ignition to 0 (off). The clock symbol will not show again until the next fluid chnage is due
11. Record the the completed service in the service book and put your own stamp on it if you are proud.
12. Renew you own fluids with your most preferred beverage. Then pat yourself on the back for a job well done knowing that the drink was for free, that for once you had a brake fluid job that you could trust, and that the dealer monkeys did not get a chance to break

A service consists of a lot more than an oil change :thumbsup
thanks for reply.

Yes I know, last week I did is just a half term oil change. I did cleaned the EGR, change the oil, oil fiter, fuel filter, air filter and carbin filter Oct 2010.

would this work on a 2000 model?
