It looks like our friend will be replacing his brake pressure sensor based on this post today ...

Anyone replace a brake pressure sensor on a 2002 e39 525i before? Not sure if I need to just unplug 3 wire connector, unscrew, screw new one in (torque?), plug connector in, and off I go?

Sensor will be here Wednesday. I'll hopefully replace it after work, and I leave for Boston Thursday night. I'm hoping this gives me my ABS back for the wintery drive East. FYI, I've already replaced the ABS/DSC module with an ATE rebuilt module :-)
So, I asked him to post a quick DIY on the BPR R&R here to help others.
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
