you first need to acquire your replacement lcm..

match the numbers and take it from there

So, recoding the LCM or any other module is actually the easy and last part of the job.

1. As Burning 2nd advised, first you need to acquire the right replacement compatible lcm -preferably of the same part number, model, etc..
2. Then you need to have INPA installed and configured and working with your car..
3. A crucial step, read with INPA and save the original configuration of your car. So that if something goes wrong, you do not brick the car. You can always recover and recode your car's original settings.
4. Final step: recode the replacement lcm . And test drive.

ive seen many times replacement parts/ modules work that have the same part number,

that do not require coding.....

just saying.. get it in, make sure its the right part.. and take it from there

Although the thread posted below is for an E46. It goes into depth about recoding an LCM as well as some other details that might be helpful.
