TUNE-UP AND ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
RESETTING THE CONDITION BASED SERVICE (CBS) DISPLAY
- Ensure that all electrical items are switched off, and then turn on the ignition switch.
NOTE: Do not start the engine.
- Ensure the on-board time and date are correctly set in accordance with the instructions in the owner's manual.
- Each service item that appears on the instrument cluster display can be reset.
Note that it is only possible to reset an item if the service life of the item is below 80-percent.
- Press the trip odometer button for approximately 10 seconds until the first CBS (Condition Based Service) item appears in the instrument cluster display.
Note that the most urgent item is displayed first. If this is not the item required, select the item to be reset by briefly pressing the button again.
- When the required item is selected, press the button again until "Reset?" appears in the display.
Note that if the button to confirm the reset is not pressed, the reset process will be cancelled, and then the display will return to its normal state.
- Press the button again for approximately 3 seconds to confirm the reset.
Note that it is only possible to reset the brake pad display if the pad sensors are working properly.
- Turn off the ignition switch.
OIL SEALS | REPLACEMENT
(Refer to illustrations 13.5 and 13.9)
- To replace the crankshaft front oil seal, remove the crankshaft vibration damper (see Section 5). To replace the crankshaft rear oil seal, remove the flywheel/driveplate (see Section 14).
While the flywheel/driveplate is off, this is a good time to check the clutch on manual transmission vehicles (see Chapter 8).
- Carefully pry the oil seal from the cylinder block using a flat bladed screwdriver or similar tool. Take great care not to damage the sealing surface of the crankshaft or cylinder block.
Alternately, drill 2 small holes opposite each other in the hard outer surface of the seal, insert 2 self-tapping screws, and use a pair of pliers to pull the seal out.
- Thoroughly clean the sealing surfaces of the crankshaft hub and cylinder block, and then apply a light coating of clean engine oil to the sealing surface of the crankshaft hub.
- Genuine BMW seal kits are supplied with a guide sleeve already installed in the seal with Loctite sealing compound (No 128357) and primer (No 171000).
- Position the seal and guide sleeve on the crankshaft hub, aligning the slots in the outer circumference of the seal with the joint in the cylinder block (see illustration).
- Using the brush provided, coat both slots on the seal outer surface with the Loctite primer supplied. Allow the primer to dry for at least one minute before proceeding.
- Using a suitable socket or piece of pipe, drive the oil seal into place as squarely as possible, until its outer edge is flush.
- Using the brush provided, force Loctite primer as far as possible into the slot on each side of the seal.
- Using the syringe provided in the kit, inject Loctite sealing compound into the slot on each side of the seal, and then coat the surface of the sealing compound with primer (see lilustration).
- Install the crankshaft vibration damper (see Section 5) or flywheel/driveplate (see Section 14).
