I replaced the water pump and thermostat on my 545i at about 180K proactively when I did my coolant pipe.

Are you sure the water pump is bad or did the belt brake and rip a coolant hose?

Rear Wheel Bearing Replacement

Just a thought here... I will be replacing the left rear wheel bearing on the '10 e60. I know the rear is different than the front due to the axle spindle in the rear.

So I have read plenty of...

Most likely if you did not have the codes prior and it's both left and right then it's probably the air line disconnected or air pump motor not connected /working.

If you lose the plastic retaining rings try some small black orings that will slip over the screw prongs.

IDK. Maybe put a GPS on your car then track it. Ignition on, then probably like 3 hours later, ignition on again. Pull the data and go to the service manager and have a sit down discussion.;)

So hard to say. It could be the differential. How many miles?

Also did you recently rotate tires or replace tires.

I am just asking as my diff whine on my 545 changed when I did those things.

I am going to jump in and assume that it had an original in service date in 2009. That is the case with my 2010 CPO, in service date was 8/31/09. So, this August for me is 6 years.

I am not sure on the injectors. I am at the dealer now. Is this the carbon issue or are injectors Failing?

The HPFP was replaced in late 2010. But I kind of expected that.

Rides real nice.
