Tip & How-To about 2006 BMW M5

Head Up Display (HUD) Adjustment

1) remove the two Torx screws above the monitor (the stereo / navagation screen). Use a T10 Torx socket to remove screws. 2) The monitor easily comes out as a single piece. No need unplug the monitor, just let it hang off to the side. 3) You will see a cable secured to a clip. Un-clip the cable and you can spin it (by hand) and the HUD will move left and right. 4) Further back and to the left is a 13mm nut on a shaft that has 6mm hex end. Loosen the 13mm silver nut a full turn or two. To loosen, use a 13mm deep socket with a long extension, ΒΌ inch or 3/8 inch tools will work fine for this. 5) Now to twist this shaft, use a 6mm socket on a long extension. There seems to be a low and high position, anything in the middle seems too hard to get it to stay in position. Tighten the lock nut, check the tilt with the cable, install the main screen with two torx screws. 6) Done!

How to change light bulb on console gear shift indicator. Wife can't tell what gear she is in after dark. Automatic trans. 2004 PT-Cruiser


I have 2002 Cruiser, not sure if it's the same configuration. Here's what I did:
Remove the Console: Slide front seats all the way back and recline them all the way to get the armrests out of the way. Pull the emergency brake ALL the way up. Set the gear shift in neutral. Remove the 4 screws in the cup holders front and rear. Remove the rear window controller (pry out gently), then squeeze the tab and pull out each of the 2 connectors. I also have a 12v socket at the front of the console - squeeze the blue tab and pull gently. The console should be free and should lift straight up with a little coaxing.
Remove the Gear Shift indicator assembly: You MIGHT be able to remove the light bulb without doing this, but I couldn't. With a T10 torx screwdriver, remove the 4 screws in each corner. Lift the assembly up as far as practical (a couple inches). The bulb socket under the PRND21 indicator has 2 very small tabs on each side that no normal-sized human being can squeeze together - I pried the bulb socket out of the white 'shroud' with a screwdriver at each tab location (2).
Pull on the black socket. The socket rotates freely and is NOT the normal "turn a quarter turn and it's out" type socket. (That'd be too easy!) The bulb is a standard interior auto bulb. Replace it and reverse the procedure to reinstall. About 30 minutes for this job.

how do you replace the headlight bulb in a 2007 bmw 328i?


You have to remove the bumper first...

Tools Required:
- socket wrench/socket kit
- 8mm socket
- 10mm socket
- flathead screwdriver
- flathead stubby
- torx driver set

Optional Tools:
- car jack
- monkey (to hold your work lights)

Instructions:
- jack up car (optional)
- At least jack up one side of the car

1) Remove 4 screws on top of bumper ( under hood, above kidney grills)
2) Remove 2 screws in each wheel-well, and clip bumper trim away from wheel-well trim
3)Push wheel-well trim away so you can unfasten 2 screws inside that hold top part of bumper to the car on each side
4) Release about 7 Screws on bottom of bumper from underneath
5) Remove bumper by uncliping each side and then pulling bumper forward

Foglights will stay in place. simply disconnect the cable.

After you remove the bumper and unplug the Foglights
1) To remove the lights you also need to remove the bracket that hold the lights
2) Remove the blots on the bracket and top of headlight.

Installation is in the reverse of removal...

removing and replacing the ignition switch


You will need the following tools:

Steering wheel puller Torx bits (get a set, you need 3 sizes) Inverted Torx ( a set is available at Schucks/Kragen/Checker Screwdriver A few zip ties Wire cutters

Start by disconnecting the yellow wire under the dash for the airbag. Now turn the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the underside of the steering wheel. You will have to insert a smaller size flat blade screw driver into the 4 holes on the back of the steering wheel and rotate them to release the airbag. Now remove the nut holding the steering wheel on and remove the steering wheel. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE AIRBAG MODULE!! Now remove the lower column cover with 2 Torx screws. You will now have access to 2 inverted Torx screws that hold the top column cover in place. Look on the top of the ignition cylinder housing and find the small hole. Insert a small Allen wrench into the hole and turn the key to "run" position and the ignition cylinder will come out, now the top cover will come off, giving access to the ignition switch. You will need the smallest inverted Torx bit for the 2 screws that hold the ignition switch in. You will have to cut a couple of zip ties to free the wiring. Now get a Torx bit and a 7mm socket and remove the lower dash panels to get access to the wiring harness. You will need the 7mm to unscrew a bolt that holds the connector together under the dash. Just follow the wiring to see what I mean. Once the connector is loose, you will see two plastic strips that run along side the connector. These are easy to remove and slide off, and are keyed so you cannot reinstall them wrong. Hope this helps.

I was getting frustrated trying to get the air bag off the wheel to do a column change out to a tilt wheel. The above worked perfectly for removing the airbag. However, the inverted torx bits can be removed with a good 6 point socket on a 1/4 inch drive ratchet as well. No need to buy a special tool.

Good luck
