Oh dear.  kkx5 is our on Forum specialist who may be able to point you in the right direction and he is ‘in the industry’ but I don’t know where his workshop is based.

Just out of interest, what tyres are fitted?
Problems / Hesitation to complete loss of drive!
« Last post by bionicmanc on Today at 11:07:56 AM »
Morning all!
I've been suffering from what feels like a hesitatation/misfire on my 2007 X5 3.0d for a few weeks but put it down to the DPF which I've had the Particle Filter warning come on for. However, yesterday that hesitation/misfire became a mechanical sound (like slipping gears/cogs) which then caused juddering from standstill to complete loss of drive within a few meters of travel.
The engine runs fine, the gears select fine, but when I accelerate the engine revs but the car doesn't move (or actually it starts to move slowly after a few seconds when revved like a really bad clutch slip).
It didn't do it at the time but a few minutes later I got the 4x4, DSC, ABS, EBV warning message.
Anyone else experienced anything similar? Do I take it it's the transfer box and/or is it possible that there's more damage?
Any advice on local garages around South Manchester/Cheshire where you've experienced a good solution (I see some websites saying they can rebuild it instead) would be very much appreciated.

Thanks, yeah have been keeping my eye out. It's very difficult as there were so many options on these to be able to compare them!

I saw one advertised with tobacco coloured seats! Never seen that colour in the flesh.... I've got cinnamon in my e46, which is quite nice but never seen this darker brown before

nope , no new plugs , no new coils, just exhaust, ill post an update when it comes back on the road
Great, might try that tomorrow as I have been told by a local Indy that the transfer case might need replacing because of a "knocking noise" at low speed. Have had this problem for around a year, the car had non  * rated tyres when we bought it so I replaced them with brand new pirelli's and seemed fine for a while.

Of course, how stupid f me
Just out of interest what would happen if you remove this fuse? Does it disengage the box and run on 2 wheel drive?

Nice one mate 👍

Thanks for that  - put my mind at ease.

Have a good one.

Hi all, just after some help, I have a 2011 30d x5 which won't start. Battery is fine , ignition comes on. But won't turn over. No warning signs on dash. When you press the start button you can hear the pumps working, but won't turn over. We have had hump leads on it. A local mechanic has tried to read fault codes but the ignition switches itself off after about 30 secs. Eventually he read fault codes and only thing that came il is 49a6 LIN BUS. I am hoping it just could be the starter but wondered if anyone has had similar problems. Many thanks
If you have jump leads on your battery is not good???....low voltage or duff battery = NO START
