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.

Mein Auto: 2005 BMW 745LI E66
E65 E66 Fuel Sending Unit

Evening all,

I have been having a problem and getting PO460 Fuel Sensor Malfunction.
Has started throwing it every time I fill up. Then the gauge comes and goes.
Seems to start working right again after I get down to about 3/4's a tank.

On my 05 745LI, How do I get to the Sensor?
Is it under the rear seat?

Your help is appreciated

may be clearer if I said its the same side as the petrol cap, its a pain in the arse taking the module out, you are supposed to use a special tool, but I used a block of wood and tapped the metal ring around with a hammer
