New drier was installed and the system was flushed... The first one it's looking like didn't fail but was a wiring issue. Now that the wiring issue had been resolved the 2nd compressor which is brand new has failed. Hella made

Mine had had two compressors, pressure sensor, regas 3 times, eventually it worked after git told possible wiring fault it was working and mechanic said I needed a new belt from pully to compressor. After fitting new built worked for short while and then blowing warm air showing these faults

That's one thing I didn't do is check the Aircon.. Well I did but thought it would be a simple regas

Thanks for the advice my local indie said the M57 is prone to timing chain failure too... Any advice on this. Thanks for your responses. Hope you have good health and enjoy your x5 for as long as you wish

Guys my x5 which I purchased in December has now done 148k should I keep to avoid big bills? What is the overall reliability like?

Could it be buckled wheels or wheel balancing?

I have the same wheels and recently changed to Meyle ride I'd say is the same just more taught. Is your steering also really heavy?

Yea it can't be that I've fitted 2nd compressor. First a uses part it's more and more looking like an expansion valve stuck open as the compressor is engaging there are no leaks. Only thing is fan doesn't work so I'm having a new fan fitted. Bloody expensive part though £580 plus vat.

How common or rare is it for expansion valve. Thanks nigeyboy. The problem I'm getting is the compressor is kicking in but no increase in pressure on guage. I will see to the final state resistor would this show up on a diagnostic machine

The blowers still work. The compressor engages it's brand new but no change in pressure. Also the fan is not working there is plenty of gas. Could it be expansion valve stuck open. No cold air whatsoever no change In gas pressure on the low pressure side

Have you changed the “hedgehog?”

It’s the final stage resistor. Up behind the dash. I’ve had 2 fail, one in the E70 & one on an E53. The air con has a mind of its own when they’re faulty. Common fault on BMW & new cars.

About £50 if IIRC.

Nige.

Where is the final stage resistor located? Also do you think it could be the expansion valve stuck open?
