Thank you Thank you Thank you
What a great post! I never could have figured this out on my own. The dealership had no idea what the deal was and would have charged me the cost of the part just to do a diagnostic test that would have yielded nothing other than me being out $100 and without a car for a few days. What a great site! I love my '02 540 and the old style plus its paid for so i'd like to keep it another 3 years. These are great cars but the nagging little problems that this site should be a great help with.
Thanks again for the pics.
Tip - I used a mirror to look up under the space to direct my hands. Fifteen minutes later I was back on the road. I am not "handy" at all so trust me when I tell you how easy it is.
