My warning notification comes and goes as well, but the feature never works as it is supposed to. The pedestrians are tinted yellowish, but no warning appears on the IDrive or the heads-up display.

That's the tool!

Yep. That is what I used. Even still, it was tougher than expected. You may need to use some penetrating oil on the 2 posts on the passenger side & the cam adjuster on the driver's side. You...
