From memory when loading 1.4.0 there was a sequence for getting the drivers to load. If the old grey stuff is working it was something like "load program plug the OBD lead into the computer select drivers in the program menu and load them" try a Google search on loading 1.4.0
Nightmare over !! Just the bad dreams now
From this it looks like it lives behind the bumper near side low down different pictures show it protruding through the lower bumper (antenna part) ?? I did read that the sensor can be reset by pushing and holding the AC and Re-circ buttons at the same time, nothing to lose by trying.
Good Luck seems your making progress

Hi there, looking for help and advice really... so the stop start didn’t work on the 118d 11 plate I picked up... had a garage look at it and they advise the battery wasn’t giving enough power to operate it so I had them change it.. however... during this they blew the front footwell module!!! Arranged for it to be sent off via DHL courier to be repaired and returned and fitted.. NIGHTMARE BEGUN... DHL lost the parcel and after 10 days of arguing they agreed to pay Bmw nearly £2500 and had a new module ordered, fitted and coded by the main dealer... got car back yesterday.... all happy but sto
It doesn't matter whether they fit, with just about all AWD/Xdrive cars the rolling radius front to rear must be with a given tolerance to avoid transfer case damage.
As an example my X5 summer wheels are staggered Front 91/2J x 20 Rear 101/2J x 20 Tyres Front 275 x 40 R20 Rear 315 x 35 R20 My winter wheels are 9J x 18 Tyres are 255 x 55 R18 all round
The staggered summer set need the difference in rolling radius front to rear to maintain the rolling radius. The tyre sizes that you have been offered are as advised by BMW even if the wheel sizes are not. You also need
Great info, thank you. I've cleared codes a few times, but I've not tried that trick. Will do.
I ended up picking up a standard 1.4.0 OBD2 adapter off amazon for $28, so that'll help. Sadly, my little laptop won't let me put it test mode, so I can't install the drivers for 1.4 on that one. I might see if I can find a cheap, older laptop locally so I have one just dedicated for software that lives in the garage. I prefer plugging it into the 20pin port in the engine anyway, and I have an adapter to OBD2 that should work with the one from Amazon. I hope.
Hi sorry for late reply , bought them online from alloy specialist I have checked this out and they will fit as looked at other reputable sellers and 8.5front and 9.5 on rear is fine I just really wanted to know if I can get more tyre then 255 35 19 rear and 225 40 19 front . Wheels I have on at mo was an option same all round or staggered so opted for staggered but do see loads of BMW's do have larger wheels on the rear .
Many thanks 👍
Strange I had never heard of this before this weekend when my son rocked up to use "dads tools and beer" with a can of Wurth DPF cleaner (every day is a school day)
He had a "how to Video on his Phone, with his 2.2d Toyota he had to remove the Front temp sensor on the DPF easy on the Toyota. Then spray the cleaner into the DPF he took his time to make sure he gave it a good soaking (plus it gave his mum time to make him some lunch) Then we put the temp sensor back ran it up to temp and triggered the regen with my laptop.
Quite a bit of grey smoke while it went through th
