Take throttle body off and clean it mate.

May not help but worth a try.

The sensor is attached to the throttle body

Hi I know this is an old thread.. but my car went into limp mode throwing P110D. A reset seems to have resolved it for now. But I know it’s gonna pop up again. 

 

Did you manage to resolve your issue?

Morning Peter

Are you sure it is the throttle body check the loom if you can get a BMW specific scan done it will give a description as well the part not just a code.

The sensor is sealed and in simple terms "cheap" it's a potentiometer, two bits of metal rubbing together once they wear they are done. If they had put a Hall effect sensor in place it would last and last. I did use a Dremel to separate mine when it went thinking I would repair it once I looked inside I decided not to bother.

Check www.realoem.com for the part number then search for the correct part at the best price on the Web. If you haven't used realoem before put the last 7 digits of your Vin into the search box and it will bring up your model, then search away. Got a brand new throttle body from DINAN in the USA for my 4.6, well it was an opportunity to upgrade things.

Good Luck

Dave
