I am told that the fuel level sensor is broken and will not display the fuel level on the dash.
In a parts warehouse catalog I see a left and a right fuel level sensor each with different part numbers. The right sensor is for a vehicle with "Auxiliary Heating". The left sensor is represented by itself with no other description.

My question is how do I tell if this newly purchased 1998 528I has "Auxiliary Heating"?

:dunno:

Thank you in advance for any responses.

Go here for part numbers: www.realoem.com. There are two sensors, one for each side of the tank. The cluster electronics calculates the amount in each side, and deflects the fuel gauge accordingly.

I doubt it makes a difference whether you have aux heating, but go here to see the oprions installed on your car: http://www.rubmw.ru/vincode/eng/
