Yaw rate Speed sensor replacement???? 2005 bmw x5 4.4i

I can't find instructions anywhere. I've bought a couple of DIY manuals but none mention how to replace this 1 sensor. I think it is 1. under the seat. 2. Under the console storage or 3. connected to the stearing wheel? Not sure - can anyone help?

ooops...my tired eyes/mind originally interpreted your post as being about the steering angle sensor which is located on the lower section of the steering column. I had to redact my post due to posting wrong information. Sorry.

I'm not sure where the yaw/rotational/acceleration sensor is located on the e53. But on the e38 & e39 it is located as you mentioned under the driver's seat (left seat). There's a strong probability that it is also located there on the e53 since they are generational cousins...but the e53 does have a different seat mounting configuration...so there's also a small possibility that it is located in a different place:


(e38/e39 Yaw/Rotational/Acceleration sensor)

A swing and a miss --- sort of. Unbolted the seat and pulled it up and back - pulled the carpet - realized I had to remove the plastic molding (these slide out) then pulled the carpet forward to reveal a sensor that did not look anything like the sensor I ordered. which is the very similar to the one above - only the number is 0 265 005285 bosch made in hungry - My mechanic had given me the error code and the replacement part number. The sensor under the seat was an airbag sensor 6911038. I am just not sure if I was supposed to go underneath the air vents I did not see any other wiring leading down so I stopped there. I was hoping it was there it would have been a really easy fix.

Great...thanks for the follow-up. I'll have to add this to my "mental rolodex".

Good luck with your DIY, too.

104 90? That's not a standard OBD II diagnostic trouble code (DTC)...it doesn't correlate to the breakdown of a DTC...so you should consider giving as much info/details as possible so others understand the perspective and/or equipment that gave this "code":


You may actually get a better response if you gave some information/details as to WHICH X5 you have (there's multiple engines & trannys)..as well as many changes during the production run from 1999-2006...so a build date is helpful to many members that may be offering suggestion or looking up information in order to answer your questions.


And I'd also suggest explaining what equipment gave you this code and if you have any warning lights or how you came about getting this code read or the reason why. A couple of numbers without any idea of what diagnostic equipment gave them usually doesn't get you very far with suggestions.

Help us help you better...please provide enough details/info for forum members to provide a response. You may want to start with clicking the USER CP link (see far top left of page in the black border) and create a permanent signature that includes your model/model year/ build date. Then report back with what tool was used that gave you those numbers...or at least some additional reference so that we know how to respond.
