2002 e39 530i
Dammit. I decided to take the seat out and reset the rails so the seat would sit square.. done , all good again but the airbag lamp is on now.
I think tomorrow I should call a carpenter , have him build me A BOX LARGE ENOUGH FOR MY CAR, FILL IT WITH COTTON WOOL put the car in and store the whole thing in the shed.
Maybe then I`ll not have to worry about what might go wrong next. I have said it before and I`ll say it again, I love driving this car, I have had many Bms over the years, but the e39 is probably in my opinion the least reliable and most finicky of them all. Look at the forums, just jam packed with problems needing solved. my wife's e46 has had nothing but routine servicing for four years. Anyway that's my take.
