Again, this was a while ago, but I seem to recall the independent tech saying any time the steering wheel angle sensor is unplugged, it has to be reset by the GT1 service computer. I could be wrong....

This was a while ago. Seems like I was able to clean it easily enough, but I didn't get to try it to see if the sensor worked again. If you're mechanically-inclined, I'd certainly consider giving...

The adhesive on the right side was placed in an effort to trouble-shoot the fogging. It didn't work.

Question 2006 E90 Engine Bonnet Seal, Fogging Headlight

For whatever reason, parts of my 2006 E90 330xi's engine bonnet seal around the driver's side headlight went missing a while ago. Now, any time it rains hard or I wash the car, the driver's side...

Question E90 iDrive Oil Level Indicator--how many bars?

I'm trying to see if my car is starting to burn oil after 106,000mi or if I was just a bit short at my last change. I did add a quart about 1000 miles ago, but I can't remember how many bars...

It looks like a corroded ground was to blame, as once fixed, I haven't had the problem since, and we're going on 2+ months now. Very happy at the prospect that I might be in the clear at 105,000...

My 2006 E90 330xi MT Sport (98,000mi) has an issue I'm trying to nail down. I've followed Mike Miller's Old School Maintenance schedule since day one.

Lightbulb It was the steering wheel angle sensor.

Confirmed by the dealer and independent shop. I had it replaced. Problem solved. BUT, I took apart the old one, and I think I might have been able to do the repair myself for free. Take a look...
