  2. Fuel pump(s) replacement

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I noticed a strange sound at the rear on the right side of the car, sounding like a damaged pump. I checked with the garage and they confirmed it is most probably the fuel pump and also advised me to replace both the fuel pump and the sucking jet pump (parts 16146752369 and 16116752839 here)...

We did some checks on the MAF and it seemed to be working properly but injector duration was 6+ms at idle! Lambda wouldnt shift of 0v...
  8. What's with the Fuel pump ring tape seal?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I changed the fuel pump in my 2000 Beast yesterday ($470 out the door for the part...ooof! Cheaper than the $tealer though), and while removing the ring on top of the assembly, noted that there was a strip of white tape with a blue "K" on it across the ring. Anybody know what this is? Factory...

    Hi.. I'm new to the forum and hope after Wednesday I can be on this site regularly. I am in the process of buying a 2000 M5 (30K miles!), which has been sitting garaged for over a year-not driven or started.
