SOURCE: I have a 2003 BMW X5, how do I reset the service indicator?

Hi,

You can reset your service indicator, as follows:

  1. Get in the car, close the door, buckle the seatbelt.
  2. Push in the clutch pedal and hold it to the floor
  3. Press the left hand dash button (the one that resets your odometer) and hold it down
  4. Put the ignition key in the key slot, and turn it gently (very gently) until the dashboard lights come on - the key will not click - if it clicks you've gone too far and you have to start again. Hold the key in this position. In five seconds or so, the dash will display "SIA" and some other characters. Do not proceed until this happens.
  5. Release the dash button (and only the dashboard button) and then press and hold it again. In another 5 seconds or so the display should begin to flash "RESET?" Do not proceed until this happens.
  6. Release the dash button and push it again to confirm. You won't need to hold it - the display should change immediately and your service indicator will display five green LED's.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this answer. Many Thanks.

Replace rear wheel seal


remove the rear axle and the seal will be in the end of the axle housing. Pull it out -fit the new seal in the same way and refit the axle. For seals to leak it is an indication that the bearing is either shot or needs adjustment so check that out as well. Check that the diff bleeder at the top of the diff is clear and that the diff is not over full

Front end grinding


The end of the drive axle that goes into the diff is in splined into the side gear of the diff and will be dry as there would be no way to stop the oil coming out of the diff past the splines. The diff seal runs on the outside of the side gear and seals the oil in the diff. The drive axle slides in and out of the splined section to compensate for the changing lengths of the axle on turns. Grease on the splines would be a big help as it would allow the splines to move when under drive load.. Check the hub bearings for condition and adjustment and check the hub itself for wear indicators.

The axle seals are leaking after a diff oil change or thats when it was noticed. are seals a common problem or can it be a bigger problem


They could have already been bad before service and now that the rear diff is full/ maybe overfull they are showing signs of leaking. Check the rear end vent as well, if that is plugged then you will have too much pressure in the rear diff and that will cause seal failure.
