Live and die by paperwork. Had you jotted down on the work order what your understanding was, then that could be used to support a contested charge. AGree with trying to use the CC.

Good luck. ****ty dealer, BMWNA being totally unhelpful. Shocker



Edit to add:


Talk to a tuner that has been working on coding DDEs. Dealers and BMW may not be able (willing) to do what a tuner can do. I **strongly** suggest this. Not sure they CAN, but worth a shot.

Hi,Quest...just stumbled upon this thread and although I haven't read all the posts I think I have an idea of what's going on. I could very well be wrong here but the thing that just occurred to me is a Federal law that provides for a long (7 years,100,000 miles comes to my mind) factory warranty on emissions related repairs. I live in a "California emissions" state which,IIRC,provides for such a mandatory extended warranty.I'm not entirely sure that it applies in all 50 states.

Has this,by chance,been considered? It just *might* be worth a try.

Good point, the ECU is listed under the federal warranty to 8/80k.

Not a help to the OP, but to clarify...

(CA has a 7/70k that includes MANY more parts than the 3 in the federal warranty.)

If you're still jambed up, PM me.

I have an outfit I plan to use If my last/next attempt to remove the 'Incorrect Fluid' message fails.


(Since I have not already paid for their service, I'd rather not post in the open, until then.)


______


Yes, I'm sure he's had trouble finding help. I've had dealer service writers deny that they flash the ecu.


I've had indies squirm at the thought with the countdown. The tuners I talk with, are in the delete bidness, and didn't provide a service for just the ecu and cas.

______


I'll throw this out:


There are folks selling both front sensors as a fixit pair. In theory, no problemo. The narrative is... the probe and controls are the same.


The front cable is 500 mm longer. Over twice the rear's length.

The control pack attaches to the tunnel wall ABOVE the aluminum alloy heat shield.

The cable passes under/between the two heat shields on it's way to the attachment point. Right next to the drive shaft.


One would need to be diligent. Real diligent, to be sure that extra 20 inches was properly stowed. It's real tough to see beyond the heat shields as they're about to be secured.

The heat shields overlap, and the cable makes an S bend to head rearward.

_____

My forward heat shield was molested. The car had been dealer serviced by the previous owner.


That shield was mangled and pressed against the exhaust pipe. Missing fasteners.
