Ah so I don't need that. It's an airbag sensor. I'll just find out how much to carriage the integrated supply module to mine and get back to you.

UPS are charging $118.22 + the $90 is $208. In the morning I'm going to call DHL and a few others I'll drop a note on line if I find someone cheaper. I just can't remember who delivered my HP printer from the states it was less than $40 and was with me within 48hrs.

Ok I have read over this and it seems like everybody saying that this is the fix has a 745 not a 760. Does this Integrated supply module work on the 760? Is it the same item number if so? Thanks in advance

Are you having the same problems as me with your 760Li? What year is it? Are you going to do the DIY stuff first before you blow out on the hpfp?
I'm in the UK and if it's easier and cheaper for you to get the integrated supply module from Rookie then go for it.
Good luck on your fix

Not sure if this helps but there is a BMW manual on eBay which details the car inside out the item number is 330741118975

I ended up taking my car to BMW they have had it for about 2 weeks now. They're not charging me for diagnostics because they could not find anything after 2 hours. They have called in a master mechanic which has gone through diagnostics the old school way. It's not the HPFP or the fuel filter it's something to do with some valve thing which is meant to open and close but it is staying opening and letting petrol into some other pipe. Anyway the part has had to be ordered from Germany because it's not an off the shelf part and it still has not arrived at my BMW dealer yet. The part is $235.72

Here is the faults which BMW found when they were sorting out my car it was nothing to do with anything everyone may of thought including me i'm glade i took it to them and the 2 weeks they had it no problem considering they was waiting for a part from Germany for 5 days. For all the work which included oil service, replacing the bonnet struts, replacing the number plate bulbs, putting on the new rims and checking the coils $1,529.45 which is 991 UK and to replace the Vent Valves $265.33 and that's including labour.
If anyone else suffers this problem maybe check through this first or get your dealer to. It don't come up on the diagnostics.

For the past three days since I've been back on the road the car has been perfect (touch wood) its purring like a cat and the fault must of slowed the response of the car because now she goes like a bat out of hell. I thought it was fast before but now every tap on the gas pedal is a full response just can't wait to see what happens when they change the sticky valves.

Honestly guys before throwing money at anything if you get the same problems it's worth getting your dealer to do the checks mine did. The parts are cheap and labor also to fit it including replacing the valves it's around $1080

The fuel in you're vent valves was from a (or both) defective high pressure pumps, the valves you replaced will not last very long. If you don't believe me, disconnect the lines on the valves you had replaced, it's very easy to check and you will know you need to replace the pumps, they are right behind you're drivers side air filter box.

Depending on your mileage you probably have carbon buildup on your valves and injectors also, any 760 with over 50k miles will , I've had the intakes off 3 with 50-70k miles on them and carbon buildup due to the direct injection is really bad, if you want to prevent you're injectors from failing in the future you should do a fuel injection or induction cleaning every 15-20 k miles, that goes for anyone with an N73 760.

Thanks sorry about the late reply I'm in Spain on holiday brought the car drove about 1200 miles. My cars when it went into BMW for the problem had over 100,000 on it. I will take your advice about the injector cleaning. Just one other question do you think I should use the regular unleaded or the super plus unleaded? Won't the Super one keep the injectors clean and healthy also?

And still got another 1200 mile back to the UK. Another quick question. Got my oil service done same time I BMW done the repair then it was set to 8000 or 6 months for my next service. I've just driven to Spain and it still says 8000 or 6 months. I'm NO mechanic BUT I was told told this a while ago "depending on how the car is driven it adjusts your service whether it's set at 8000 or 800".

It has happened to me when I was only doing local driving (no motorway) and I had 900 miles left to service and then the next day it had zero out taken my 900 from me because I never took it on the motorway or anything above 40 mph (70kph)
But I seem to only notice it more in my 760 (especially since this drive) never really noticed it in my 745.

did you also have long cranking issues?

Has anyone had similar problems before I take it into BMW so I can tell what's the problem. I'm sure it's the injectors or something to do with the fuel system.
I've read this post half a dozen times and understand it was mainly your fuel tank vent valves (great info, btw). Right now, I am consistently getting error 276D for Tank Venting System Faulty. I too have rough idle, occasional dying at slow speeds, etc. But you mainly mentioned idle and bumpy engine problems. Did you also have long cranking to get the engine to start? Especially after letting it sit for hours? or did it always just start up immediately?

If you have a 760 and you have fuel in one or both vent valves you have a defective high pressure pump, the (or both) high pressure pumps being defective can cause a long cranking time. A defective low pressure fuel pump can also cause a long crank at cold start so you should pay to have it diagnosed.
