    Changing the filter by myself - will this automatically remove the service message? Or do I have to reset something?

    Solution Worked great. After inspecting the two filters and doing a simple vacuuming the filters came about 85% clean. I will extend the interval for change 15000 to 20000 miles over the 47,000 recommended by the manufacturer and programmed into the service alerts.

Hi, if you open the hood you will see 2 black microfilter housings on the left and right of the engine neer the windshield, on these you will have a bar clip, unclip these and the housing lid will be able to be removed, you then just lift out the microfilters and replace them, installing is the reverse of fitting, job done. hope this helps, regards mark.

Microfilter


The microfilter is an electrostatically charged filter that captures dust and pollen particles (down to 5 microns) that normally are drawn into the passenger compartment through the ventilation system. It is similar to the filter that you have in your home AC unit. Just like your house filter your BMW's microfilter should be changed also. The recommended interval is at every inspection #1 and #2. However, if your AC smells musty or you have decreased blower fan volume change it sooner.

BMW 530, 2004, how to reset the car to recognize the new filter


Hi aajabbar , this can be tricky if you haven't reset the cbs indicator before
first turn the ignition on so that you have all the ignition lights on and the engine not running, once the service indicator has cleared fom the display, press and hold the tripometer in until the display shows a triangle then the microfilter symbol, release the button then press and hold again untill reset shows, then release and press and hold again untill you have a sequence of lines on display, once this has happened release the button and turn off the ignition, once the ignition is switched on again the sevice indicator should have reset. you may wish to print these instructions and familiarise yourself with them before carrying out a reset. regards Mark.
