Depends on the engine, if its a M62, its under the hood, torwards the front drivers side. If it a N62, it is on the underside of the vehicle, next to the oil drain plug. Its the black plastic housing with a 6mm allen bolt in it(thats used to drain the oil out before removal)

On some X5's you can do it through the instrument cluster whereas other through the button on the centre console depending on the spec.
On the centre console you'll find the tpc button. It looks like a flat tyre with an exclamation. With the ignition turned off, press and hold this button and turn on the ignition to position 2. You'll notice on the instrument cluster the light go red, yellow, off and then come back on yellow. When the light comes back on yellow release the button and wait with the ignition on until the yellow tpc button goes out. Thats it.
If this hasnt worked you have a different spec and therefore a different way of doing it! Let me know and il guide you through it.
Hope this helps!
