  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi All, I am sure this is answered somewhere, but I have searched and searched and can't seem to find. Is there a list of "release notes" with idrive software? I have a 2009 520D and am planning to fit a newer bluetooth module. The people I want to buy from said my iDrive version is...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Help please!! The lever by the headrest that allows my passenger seat to release and incline forward, thereby allowing people to get in and out, seems to be lifting up fine, but to no effect - Seat is stuck in the locked back position. All the electronic controls work fine and will move the...
  3. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Although there is a thread on how to manually release the hood on a 7 series it does not seem to apply to the 750li. The example is a 745 and when you try to go at the hood latch from under the engine cavity there is much more in the way of the latch. We tried for over 6 hours to get at it...
  4. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've seen a few threads about replacing the hood release cable, but what about getting the hood open first? So far, two mechanics (one at the BMW dealership) and a BMW body shop are telling me there is no way to open a closed hood with damaged cables preventing its release. The body shop is...

    Trunk release suddenly stopped working. Key fob and inside release aren't working. All fuses are good. I don't hear any clicking or solenoid sound. Any ideas?:mad:
  6. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    My 2004 X5 hatch release is stuck open and nothing seems to reset it. We've opened and closed the door, cycled the key on and off, pushed all the buttons and nothing seems to work. Any suggestions so we can get the truck home?
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    The bonnet (hood) release cable has snapped and I need to know how to access to engine bay to fix it. I have already searched online but have been unable to find any guidance on how to open the bonnet from outside the car. I concede I may have to smash through the grilles, but what then? Any...
  8. 7 Series DIY
    Today's issue: hood cable failure after messing with the HID bulbs in the headlights. These pictures show a common location for hood cable failure. In my case, the clamp at the end of the cable sleeve broke the plastic outer sleeving behind it and slid up the metal inner sleeve, which reduced...
