You will need to remove the upholstery and pull the old mat out and then pop in the new airbag sensor. You will need to buy new clips and a new connector. After you replace it, you will need to have the light reset. Click on this link below to view actual pictures of the replacement:

The seat pressure sensor. if it's the seat sensor you can find a BMW Airbag Bypass, Seat Occupancy Sensor Mat Emulator on ebay, they are cheap and it works well.

How do i take my fuel pump out in my bmw 325, i got the rear seat put and the cover on the passenger seat off, i just cant get the pump out


The fuel pump in your 325 is under the rear seat, passenger side. Take the seat out, then pull up the rubber grommet with the wire going through it. Leave the wire alone for now. Peel up the thin rubber insulating mat. It is pre cut by the factory and not glued down. Remove the four nuts (10mm socket) and lift the round plate. Now remove the wire by sliding the plastic plug type housing back and lift the entire plug type housing up. Now, remove the hose clamp and slide the hose back off the plastic tube. If you damage the clamp, buy a new 1/4" clamp at the auto store for .30cents. Now unscrew the steel ring holding the pump in place. Unscrew this ring by tapping the ring with a screw driver and hammer. Remember counterclockwise (off). Now put your finger in the plastic ring molded into the top of the pump and pull up with some force. It is in place with a rubber gasket. Tight, but it will come loose. Be careful not to drop any thing into the tank. On the other side (drivers side) is a float/sensor. When reinstalling, seat the rubber gasket into the hole then drop the new pump/sensor into place. Your tank is like a saddle bag so it has two float/sensors. Time: 25 minutes

My 2004 BMW 325 ci convertible is difficult to start.


If the fuel filter has been replaced, then maybe these are other reasons:

1. intake camshaft sensor (known to go bad on BMW E46s). ~$100 part.

2. fuel injectors (though I doubt they go bad that easily). ~$100/ piece. Your car has 6.

3. Ignition coils. ~$90 a piece. Your car has 6.

4. mass air flow sensor. Again, another expensive part. ~$300.

We recently bought a 2006 bmw 325i at the dealership. After a few days of driving we noticed that the airbag on the passenger side keeps turning off and on along with the seat belt sign. We believe there...


HELLO SERGEY ITS JP . IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THE VEHICLE HAS A SEAT RECOGNITION SENSOR DEFECTIVE THIS SENSOR SEATS IN THE SEAT CUSION ,TO DETECT IF A PERSON IS SEATING DOWN OR NOT TO ENABLE AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT IF IS DEFECTIVE IT WILL COME ON AND OFF. .AND THE SEAT BELT HAS A RETRACTION DEVICE THAT TENSIONS THE SEAT BELT WHEN IN A CRASH ,SO IF THE SEAT IS NOT DETECTING IT WILL NOT TROW THE PASSENGER AIR BAG OR THE SEAT BELT TENSIONER ,THIS SHOULD BE FIXED BY A QUALIFIED TECH

1999 bmw 323.I convertible


I'm not sure if yours is an E36 or an E46 model.
On the E46 a common AIR BAG error light is caused by the stretching of a cable underneath the driver's seat when it is slid back and forth (usually when vehicle is shared by different height drivers!).
Unfortunately the solution is replacing this cable (quite cheap), then having the code read and extinguished by a code reader at Bmw (-expensive hourly rates though).
Some other places have code readers like vehicle electrics/alarms specialist -but the cable is still needed to be replaced first (2 min job) -I think ebay has one at the moment (but compare prices with Bmw Dealer parts prices first).
Check Google with airbag light and Bmw E46 (there's shed loads of info).
