It could be temperature or load related.  Something causing a hose to move slightly and give rise to a leak, or a seal/valve being affected by higher temperatures.  A bag may have gone bad again but needs to be at the right angle for it to leak.

Even the difference between a full and empty fuel tank might be enough.

Could be bags, hoses, valve block, connections in pipes etc.

Thanks

But what would cause intermittent leakage?

My old bags I saw perished and so leakage was always happening over time

But this is only sometimes?

Getting oil change next week so will get garage to diagnose

Could be a dodgy bulb holder?  Either corroded or just mucky.  E70s are known for it.

Thanks for the advice.  I checked the fuses in the front which were fine.  There are also 2 in the boot, 75 and 87; I'm not sure what each one controls.

I checked 75 first which was fine.  When I plugged it back in I heard a quiet hum from the pump housing that lasted for a few seconds - so I suppose that could be the fuse for the pump.  Fuse 87 was blown however. Until I can get some spare fuses I have swapped in the rear screen heater fuse (same rating and there isn't much chance of the rear screen misting up at the moment) which has not blown yet.

I'll be out in the car later so will see whether this has cleared the error or whether the fuse blows again indicating another issue somewhere.  I'll update later once I know what it's doing.

Best times are possibly around new plate change, though many are now leased so less relevant.  End of financial quarter can also be a ‘driver’.  My Dealer was very keen to get my new car on the road to meet their quarter targets.

Dealers often add £2.5k to the sticker price to pay for the AUC warranty so there should be some movement.

I had 0% once and it required 1/3rd deposit with the remainder over 2 years.  Great if you can get it though  :)

hi, thanks for that.

i will go and view the car and see what happens i think.

looking forward to being back in an x5  :)

Not all models have both bulbs or wiring present.  There must be one on the driver’s side but the passenger side is optional.
