So I was just cruising along when…
Error! Error! Error! Error! Error!
Cruise control fail, ABS fail, stability control fail, pedestrian impact warning fail, rear impact warning fail, tyre pressure warning fail.
Immediate thought was actually something electrical had crapped out and it was shutting down systems but did a code scan and found the real culprit.
ABS sensor, front right.
This was on the wheel that had an advisory for a noisy wheel bearing last MOT, it possibly only needed the wheel bearing replaced to allow a better pick up but not doing the job twice so replaced both.
Front brakes were last changed during the car’s stint away for the EGR cooler recall. 3 years & 27k later, feel the prep of the flange face could have been better. Thats actually quite a lot of corrosion and the discs needed twatted with a hammer to release them.
Discs are serviceable but the back faces are suffering.
Inner hat on the discs got set about with a brass brushwheel on a drill before refitting.
Recess on the hub and bearing mounting face also given some wire brush love before reassembly.
After re-assembly & test drive everything showed fine on bimmerlink and no error messages.
Had a little deep dive in to a couple of menus whilst I was bothered.
DPF supposedly has 68k miles left in it. Hoping to improve that now I’m doing more regular commuting etc to help with natural burn off.
Battery at 57% isn’t a huge surprise, auto stop-start is very seasonally dependent on the car and I’ve long suspected that’s due to a slightly weak battery.
