The number was on a white card stuck in with the manual binder. Or if you don't have it, its located in the trunk, behind the left nav access panel on a silver "TCU" module about the size of 2 vhs tapes stacked together. if you look at the eject button on the nav player its located just to the right and is installed on about a 45 degree angle.

there is a white lable with the "PK" on it. i used a small telescoping mirror but you can also slightly pull back the trunk liner above the unit and it will be easily located. If any of this options works go to Bmw dealer for service and we found it in car computer.

    Thanks! I have the wagon. I just went out (nighttime) to look. There is a panel that is removable on the driver's side. There are two electronic-looking things in there, both have labels on them. How may numbers would it be?

2007 530xi Sports Wagon: where is battery located on 2007 bmw 530 xi...


If it's not under the hood, then the only other place BMW places their batteries is in the trunk. Since it's a Sport Wagon, pull up where the rear spare would be and it will be there, usually on the right hand side.

Hope this Helps,

Can't get to battery on 94 525i. I believe it is under the back seat but cannot remove the seat.


I found the owners manual and it says take it back to BMW!

Most other posts I found on the net say it is under the passengers side rear seat. But I guess that depends on if you have a right hand or left hand drive.
