7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

E65 Wheel Bearing

Has anyone had to replace a rear wheel bearing because it wasn't communicating with the speed sensor? I'm getting a bad way detection in Inpa as well as a rear wheel speed sensor. The speed sensor is new and we swapped sensors to test and no communication. Also, my new DSC module is lit when I drive 30 feet or so.

ThAnks for getting back. Had a bad speed sensor right out of the box from BMW. The main cause was a bad DSC/ABS module not a bad speed sensor.

I get the Rear right speed sensor fault too, but I haven't done anything to deal with it since I am not noticing any difference in the ride.

It has been more than two years now. And I can't tell if the bearing is bad because the tires make the noise of the road, however on new roads there doesn't seem to be noise.

Also looking for DIY

I could use a DIY as well if anyone has it. I am going to replace just because of age and a little noise. I am already doing the complete rear suspension so I might as well do this also. I found several for the front which looks relatively simple. The rear seems more complicated because you need to pull the drive flange and it looks like special tools may be required. Just trying to get some advice if something rented from Autozone or purchased from Harbor Freight can do the job.

I didn't think that my problem was the rear wheel bearing because usually you can hear the bad wheel bearing. I was getting a bad way detection and a faulty rear wheel speed sensor using INPA. When I checked all 4 wheels I was getting no movement from the right rear. I wouldn't replace the wheel bearing until you know the DSC and rear speed sensor are working correctly.

The wheel bearing in the rear communicates with the rear speed sensor. I had just replaced the rear speed sensor so I was leaning towards a bad wheel bearing but it turned out that the speed sensor was bad out of the box.
