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.

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.

Leaking seal left side rear; does bearing come off with axle or stay in housing and do you have to pull the differential cover and pull the pin to release axle?


Bearing stays in the housing but check it for wear...often the seal leaks because the bearing has too much play. Yes pin in diff needs to come out.

My front differential is leaking!


I cannot see it, but I am guessing that you need to replace your axle seal. To do this,you have to pull your CV shaft out. Remove the tire, remove the caliper from the top of the rotor. Using a hammer on the back, remove the rotor. Take off the spindle (axle) nut, separate the axle (CV shaft) from the hub. Replace seal. It should pop right out. Good luck!

2005 Yukon Front Diff Axle seals


You don't have to remove the whole diff to change the seals, but you will have to seperate it where the shaft meets the carrier housing. There is a clip holding the passenger axle shaft in place that you have to remove to change the seal. The drivers side axle stub can be removed with a little force as there is a spring clip holding that side in.
