Did you fit new vacuum pipes.
If not then check them for splits.

I think you can buy a long lead to run to the rear of the car but i am not sure how it works for the cd player.
Somebody had butchered all the cables in the back of my car before i got it.
By butchered i mean they had removed all the cd/nav and whatever was in there and joined a load of wires for the speakers to work thank god the front end was still the factory plug.

Just changed mine over from the WINce version to the android one and so far i like it.
Easy to fit and come with all bit's needed.
I thought i had a faulty CANbus adaptor that i returned for a replacement with no problem but it turned out i had missed a small plug in the back of the unit.
This is the one i have just fitted (also the radio reception is fantastic which is a first).

I gave mine a spray of silicone stuff and  good wipe to clean the fronts.
Then pulled the plugs of and sprayed them then put them back on and off 2 or 3 times.
That sorted mine out.
Forgot to say it was when i first got the car and i had the beeeep and the flashing green light.

I put a AGM battery on my 320d after i had a spate of faulty varta batteries 2 in fact one faulty on delivery and the second lasted around 15 months.
Personally i don't find the AGM any different to any other battery it still needs charging often due to infrequent short trips.
In fact it is in my shed on charge as i put the Yuasa YBX5110 that i bought for the x5 to see if it lasts any longer.

I ran a feed from the reverse light with no relay.
Working for over a year now with no problems at all.

Seen 2 disasters of late people plugging charging devices into the OBD.
Be careful.

I bought one adaptor but it comes up in torque app "no ecu found".
When i look at adverts they all say "diesels cars from 2004".
I have a creator c310 scanner that works ok so i know the socket works.

Is there a Bluetooth adaptor that will work on a 2002 diesel.

Hi Alan

The M button lights up and goes off when pushed. Apart from that when I press 1, 2 or 3 nothing happens.

Looks like I'm needing a seat memory module.

Many thanks.
Exactly how mine was.
Very easy to change them over.
Will look tomorrow if i can find one on the bay and post the kink but if you find one let me know.

Regarding the steering column adjuster.
Do the memory buttons work on the seat.
My car had the same problem when i got it and i first changed the adjuster stalk but didn't fix it.
It turned out to be the module on the side of the seat plenty to be had on the bay.
I bought one for a range rover half the price of a bmw x5 and both the same part.

Yes it will fit.
I have just taken one like that out and fitted the newer type one that has the 9" screen.
Plenty of fitting info on the net as well.

Somebody changed them over as the originals might have damage on them.
Salesman could had them swapped.
