""""Here is a link to so you can see the steering column in an exploded view. You'll be looking at part "9". There are 3 different sensors steering angle sensors listed. I picked up a new one from FCP Groton for 260 shipped (it is an OEM sensor)
I could not copy the file from TIS. Here is what the document states. It doesn't seem like much help unless you have a BMW diagnosis system at your disposal.
document number 61 31 996 Carry out steering angle sensor adjustment
In vehicles with active front steering, steering angle sensor adjustment is integrated in the service function "Initial operation/adjustment for active front steering" and must not be carried out separately!
Steering angle sensor adjustment must be carried out:
- After adjustment work on the front axle/steering
- After all mechanical work on the steering system
- After the following components have been replaced/coded
- Steering column switch cluster
- DSC control unit
- ARS control unit
Connect vehicle to BMW diagnosis system.
Select and carry out steering angle sensor adjustment under Service functions.""""
I found this post after a search for the steering angle sensor, pricey little bugger...
