I think that you will find it in the trunk beneath the tray on the right side. If it is not there, it is beneath the rear seat. Just pull up on the rear seat bottom to snap it up.

Bmw 525d e39 2003 has hunting problem but goes like a dream but then when at lights it start to hunt brum, brum can anyone help

I would assume that you have a check engine light on and you probably have a misfire. Go to your local parts store(autozone, o'reilly's, etc.), they do scanning for free. Get the codes and let me know and I will continue to help.
