I always use 'Insert Image' icon and it creates a link. How do I upload pictures to the board?

Thank you so much for posting this DIY repair. I used this to replace my sensor and put all back together. I am an E60 driver but not an M5 but no one had put any info like this on the non-M5 boards so I was very thankful to have this.

Yesterday, I took my E60 to the BMW dealer for them to turn out my SZL light. They tried but the light would not turn off so I'm still having some type of issue.

Has anyone else had any experience with lights not turning off once the replaced their sensor? What about the original poster? Did you have to have dealer re-program?

I did not clean the disc on the circuit board as I was a bit afraid I might make things worse. I also did not take that circular piece out of the SZL module.

Any more feedback is appreciated. David in NC.

Use the paperclip icon to attach images, rather than the landscape icon which just links to an external hosting site.

I no longer have an option to edit the post, so I cannot upload the pictures. I fixed the broken links, however.

I had the warning light reset before doing this repair, but it was coming back. Cleaning the disk is the whole reason for taking it apart. My disk was covered in goo and would not let the light through properly. Clean the disk, then reset the warning light light yourself by turning the wheels left and right (the very last step of the instructions). How much worse can it get?

Thanks for the post. I'll try taking my SZL apart again and cleaning off the goo. Where does the goo come from? It wasn't quite obvious and I had assumed it was put there on purpose for this part to work. As I go back and read the original DIY a bit more closely, I see where it plainly stated to do that.

Thanks again.
