More accurately; to clear the many many module faults. (the average being about 8-10 in my experience). (usually related to momentary low voltage). But definitely get a foxwell nt510 or 520. Don't get tricked by higher numbers the 6xx series doesn't do two-way coding.

Somebody mentioned there door handles; I have a DIY fix for the door handle carriers that's costs about .25£, it can added preemptively to prevent the inevitable door handle break.

Since you live where it freezes in winter also look at my door actuator repair thread (search for threads with subject AWR-fix to find my help threads).

There is a design flaw In the actuator that allows a single drop of water to lock the door latch frozen solid and a simple cure to the problem.

Get some silicone spray to lubricate the window tracks. My windows sped up 60% when I did that. Wife's soed up much more. Her passenger window was so slow it timed out before reaching the top on auto close.

This is why the window regulators regularly break: nobody lubricates the edge where the window slides

So is the Foxwell 5xx good Enough to do everything I need to do? Aka reset adaptations and bits on the transfer box?

I’ve only got the most basic foxwell for quick clearing I keep in the glovebox and my Passat I’ve got a Vacom Cable and software. Might get a copy of INPA as well but if this foxwell does everything I need I might just get one of them

Oh here’s a thought would it do the gearbox adaptations as well, as I can then do the oil service correctly at home

Not sure you would want to clear the transmission adaptions with just a fluid change. Could cause more problems than anything good...

But you would clear the adptations if you changed items that will alter fluid flow/pressures, like any seals or solenoids etc.

It’s only as that was the fix on the e61 if your gearbox started playing up post a fluid change. Was just a thought as they are almost the same box. But mine was a LCi 2008.

It was always the case that the old fluid usually needed less pressure to clamp the clutch plates due to being higher viscosity and it being laden with friction material that’s come off the plates. So the new fluid needed a reset if you had left it too long so the G/B could learn the new pressures required to make the correct gears with the “thinner” new fluid.

But you only needed to do it the the box started ‘slipping’ post a fluid change.

I think yes if fluid changed. It has to be much different frictional properties I would look for TIS etc for confirmation.

Looks like the transmission filter has two options, for deep or shallow pan. Could somebody with the knowledge comment on that?

Look for the tag on your transmission and also use your ViN in the BMW catalog and it will show you exactly what parts match your specific ViN. The transmission tag is just in case someone swapped the transmission before you got it (not likely)

I would like to know about this as well.

You need to be more specific about which transmission you are asking about - there are at least four different transmissions fitted to these cars...

ZF 6HP26 transmissions have a metal pan variation, which has a separate filter and a couple of plastic pan variations, one of which has a built-in filter and the other uses a separate filter.

Not sure what the earlier ZF 5HP24 or the GM transmissions use...
