  1. You are right. We did it 2 days ago. I forgot to update this thread. We took the panal off the back and a cable had been dislodged. All working now cheers
  2. You were exactly right. Blowing red hot now very nice. Thanks so much for you help
  3. That's a bit naff, my BMW has probably had a few owners but if the vulnerability is still there it's still there no matter how many owners has been through
  4. I have a funny feeling my friend might have forced the Hatch shut yesterday when trying to get the pool table into the back but I will try the WD40 option. The reason I say it might have been forced closed is when I have just been looking at it the the end of the Hatch that is stuck seems to be further in in as you can see by the photo where has the other end the lights are flush
  5. Yet another problem. Yesterday I did someone a favour and picked op a pool table they had bought. It was a very very tight squeeze. We managed to get the top and bottom boot hatches shut. Now I have a problem whereas the drivers side lock for the drop down hatch won't release. Passenger side is OK. I can hear the mechanism working but it's not releasing drivers side lock. Hope this makes sense. I need to know if anyone has had this problem and how they resolved it.
  6. Got it sorted. Was the hedgehog. Blowing really well now but struggling to get heat out of it so far but not give it a good run out yet
  7. It's all front blowers and air con. I'm having to open my window or crack the sunroof. I went to check the fuse first but can't find it anywhere in the front.
  8. Sorry if I'm misunderstanding this, but are you meaning, unplug it the plug it in again or unplug it and leave it unplugged? What does the FSR do?
  9. Thank you for that. All paired now. Without pull the boot apart as well 😁
  10. Has anyone come across this problem before. internal blowers, demister for front windscreen, the max button, air conditioning button etc do not seem to work but this is only intermittent occasionally I get into the car and it will work and continue working for for a few days then stop then it won't work again for another few days then start working again. the back demister works absolutely fine so I cannot decide what is going wrong whether it is a loose wire or something like that does anyone have any ideas

  12. If you ever decide to upgrade your mobile phone with your provider what happens then with regards to the car? Do you have to end up getting the spanner set out yet again to pull out the Bluetooth unit to reset it so that you can input the code ? I know what the Bluetooth code is but the centre console display is not highlighting the code button for me to press.
  13. I don't know if this is one problem or two but on my steering wheel only one of the horn buttons work and else for the size if the 2006 x5 the horn sounds pathetically quiet to the point of being embarrassed by it lol. And idea what could potentially be the problem. Could it be the horn units themselves. I've never had a car to work on as such so everything I do on this car is a learning process for me
  14. Does anyone know if my 2006 x5 E53 Le Mans has a speed limiter. I mean the type where I can set a maximum speed, say 30mph and it won't go over that speed even if I floor it. This is different to cruise control.
