Yep: 51247171558 and 51247171557 off of RealOEM. “stopper, trunk lid Cpl right/left”

I can’t recall where I got them from but they were (I think) about $50 each and took a while to come in (from BMW). Install wasn’t too bad but the right side is a bit of a pita as the fuses block hand access. So either pull those fasteners or pull the trim on that side to make things “easier”. You’ll also need a 30mm socket as the things are held in by a big nut that really wants to cross-thread.

Never runs long enough to impact the battery at all. Will run about 1 minute and then shutdown then in a minute or so it will run another minute or so, sometimes a third time and thats the max.

a device to prevent over-discharging the battery

I installed my electric fan using the switched-power that usually charges the glovebox flashlight (never was installed in mine), so it goes off as soon as I turn off the key. I wanted to run my fan awhile longer, unattended, but feared having the battery drained by the fan (the thermal switches fail sometimes).

I was going to get and install a device to prevent over-discharge, but got side-tracked into other tool, parts, & projects, and was content to monitor the real coolant temperature (not the gauge in the dash) as long as it stayed within limits (fan cuts on at 183F, coolant temperature maintains at 194F).

But, this last conversation reminded me to search my Amazon "save for later" list (sometimes up to 125 items on it) for the device I was going to use: the BlackVue Power Magic Pro. I ordered it just now. Name:  battery discharge limiter device.JPG

I also remembered another thread about possible problems with the "sleep" function working if using that device https://xoutpost.com/1016742-post25.html. But that in that thread the quoted poster/user? of the device was wondering if his dashcam, hooked to the device, would affect the sleep mode. I didn't see the conclusion.

However, since the device will be used in conjunction with the thermal trigger for the fan relay, when the thermal switch says OK for the fan shutdown, then the device will not draw any power, and sleep should follow. If the thermal switch fails, then the BlackVue device will shut itself off at the set voltage (I plan to set mine to shut-down at 12.5v; the timed settings of 12 hours and up are not applicable to the fan usage, so they won't be used). I'll report my results (perhaps in a week or so, after the next cold wave passes).

I wasn't actually concerned but BMW removed the feature and then caused actual engine problems.

I would love to be able to turn there function back on.

I imagine you could code that back on with the BMW software suite? I've noticed a ton of codings available for the e70 now that I have an ICOM and have been doing more reading on the subject.

Heated seats yes. Heated steering wheel needs to be retrofitted.
