Strange indeed. It did it before I added 620 and 6UH when all that was added was the 609. Almost seems like it's looking for the rear view camera, which car doesn't have.

Haven't had to do this on an E39, but on E28's and E34's, you need a deep socket to clear the pin that engages the driveshaft on cars with guibo.
