E39 (1997 - 2003)
The BMW 5-Series (E39 chassis) was introduced in the United States as a 1997 model year car and lasted until the 2004 when the E60 chassis was released. The United States saw several variations including the 525i, 528i, 530i and 540i. -- View the E39 Wiki

This conversation today shows that not all users are aware that the most efficient use of the bestlinks pretty much requires the user understand how to search within a thread.

To remind users, there are two easy ways to search within a thread, both of which are described in post #6 above.
1. Use the forum-provided "Search this thread" button.
2. Use the operating system keyboard shortcut for the FIND & NEXT feature (e.g., Control-F and F3 on Windows & Linux, Command-F on Mac, "/" and F3 in Firefox)

this is why I do not use the bestlinks post
Personally, I use the operating system FIND/NEXT shortcut method.
However, if the user has the control panel options set to less than the maximum, the bestlinks is so long that they will miss items in that operating system FIND/NEXT search.
What I do, and what I recommend others do, is set the Bimmerfest account control panel option to view 80 posts per page.
That way, the operating system FIND/NEXT feature will search, in a split second, the entire bestlinks, in one fell swoop.

NOTE: A side issue is that the bestlinks is getting close to 80 posts long (however, there are at least a half dozen off-topic wholly-unrelated garbage posts which can be moved by a moderator).

Here is a graphic I just made which shows the 3 steps to set your control panel options to the maximum number of posts per page.

EDIT: Setting the number of posts per view to the maximum also drastically reduces the number of pages any particular canonical thread has (which is a good thing); I'm sure it also increases the time to load a page (but, with today's modern Internet speeds, I'm not sure how much of a disadvantage that is).

One by one, I'm replacing the older bestlinks reference which go offsite, to newer ones which are on this site, and hence, updateable.

So, without further ado, I will ADD a new cross reference, pointing to this thread, so that, in the future, we can both point others here, and update as needed with new and cross referenced information.

Sigh. Even with this thread, which, pretty much, is about as much as one can spoon feed another, there are still folks with almost 500 posts who don't understand what I mean when I type /keyword f3 in the bestlinks...

The question came up today on how I decide to cross reference a new thread to an existing canonical thread - so - I put my explanation of the admittedly flawed system here, for cross reference...
> E39 (1997 - 2003) > What can I have done at the alignment shop to reduce my drastic E39 inside tire wear?
Quote:
Originally Posted by bluebee View Post

It's a compromise of my time versus thread utility.

Truth be told, I use an informally fuzzy algorithm to cross reference depending on whether the topic is:
a) Discussed commonly & has a good answer already, or,
b) Discussed commonly but it does not yet have a good answer, or,
c) Not commonly discussed (usually doesn't have a good answer either).
d) Almost any thread from cn90, QSilver7, JimLev, 540iman, etc.

Given that, here's my fuzzy algorithm for deciding what to comment.

COMMON TOPIC WITH REALLY GOOD ANSWER ALREADY:
If the topic is discussed commonly but already has a great answer (e.g., ABS trifecta, FSU, wiper blade refills, violent vibration upon braking, vapor barriers, DISA valve repair, seat twist repair, window regulators, rear tailllight melting, trunk loom fraying, etc.), I almost never cross reference every post I see unless that xref has some really good and new information.

COMMON TOPIC WITH LOUSY ANSWER SO FAR:
If the topic is common, but the answer is still up in the air (e.g., VANOS seals, causes of tire wear, causes of vibration, misfire diagnosis, causes of oil leaks, timersert repairs, causes of any particular DTC, etc.), I sometimes cross reference, usually if the thread starts developing in a good direction, but, I don't have infinite time so, I sometimes assume it will develop.

UNCOMMONLY DISCUSSED:
If the topic is relatively rare (e.g., recently there were Bosch spark plug blowing out issues, missing battery positive cable covers, catalytic converter fails, v8 vs i6 oil cap part numbers, japanese BMW cluster codes, etc.), I ALWAYS cross reference, because we need all the information we can get - and we'll never find these in a search when we need them.

In that latter two cases, I don't have the time (nor documentation system) nor expertise to watch the thread for days or even weeks or months to see what develops. So, I pop in a cross reference, and, move on to the next thread, hoping (assuming) the cross reference will develop.

Of course, almost any thread started by Fudman, QSilver7, cn90, JimLev, etc., will develop nicely, so, I almost always cross reference them (and often make them the canonical thread to cross reference to).

In summary, it's an imperfect system, and it depends on everyone making the threads useful, over time.

In case someone wonders why I don't maintain the wiki, my answer is here today...

Would you consider summarizing what's in there and adding it as a section to the Wiki? I don't feel qualified to do it, or I'd do it myself.
I decided long ago I put too much effort already into maintaining the bestlinks (which is more than a bunch of links as it also means I maintain the hundreds of canonical threads it points to).

So, I let others maintain the wiki!
It's a strategic decision to maintain my sanity.

A newbie opened a nice first introductory post, which listed the expected repairs, and, to help out, we each provided hints, which I provide below, by way of example, how even a newbie can find how to fix a plethora of problems, starting on someone else's shoulders...

She's a basket case of lots of small issues:
1. needs clutch
2. needs brakes
3. needs shocks/struts
4. needs tires (has stock 15's- maybe a wheel tire upgrade?) Mismatched tires - 2 off brand tires- new, 1 continental - new, 1 -bad tire with hole, 1 full sized spare dryrotted
5. needs new driver door handle
6. needs driver cabin weatherstrip
7. ABS trifecta
8. Only have 1 remote key (would like an extra and maybe a valet- just in case)
9. passenger window regulator?
10. both mirrors with brown surround
11. headlights faded
12. etc....

Those are just a few of the issues....

Then prioritize based on:
- Safety (i.e. fix brake problem first), For example, I'd overhaul the entire brake system: 6 hoses and all caliper seals/boots, info in forum I posted a while back.
- Budget
- Your free time

It's underneath the front bumper on the RHS near the wheel well. If you look underneath you'll see a narrow plastic device ending in a point on one end and with wires on the other going up into the space behind the bumper. It looks like #1 in this diagram

Yes, there is a trim strip that goes there. Part number 4 in the diagram below. This piece will need to be painted to match on your car.
Also, for future reference, do not post in this thread with a new topic. To start a new topic, click "new thread" at the top left of the E39 page.

I am a new owner of my first BMW 2002 530i.. The car is very well maintained over all and i am in love with it.. However i have a few problems and my mechanic has told me after reading rrouble codes that the first and formost problem that couldve cuseing false warnings is the main relay (DMI) that controls powering main ECU. Where is this relay located. Im told by BMW dealer that it shy blue and löcated in engine compartment passenger side. I dont see a sky blue relay there..

The fuse box on the passenger side is underneath the cabin air filter housing, and under a plastic cover. Just remove the box and it should be under there.

Use the search bar at the top right corner of this website. Otherwise, please start a new thread about your issue in the E39 forum. This isn't a discussion thread.

can't figure out the search feature

Well, I did just make a post asking for help after I saw this thread which suggested that we first do a search because it is likely that my topic has already come up and many great answers have already been given. I used the "Advanced Search" feature. Nothing worked. I even used the words "coolant adventures" in my search line because I'd just seen a thread title with those two words in it and still didn't find any matches. I'd love to just find where my topic (my ac/heater constantly blows and my controls do not change it at all. It also runs even after I turn my car off) is and see what all of the advice is that has already been given. Any help with this search feature would be great.

Thanks.

Greg
