Re: PDC sensors, front fender

I'm currently fixing a similar issue, but not with the sensor falling out, but with a broken sensor, as in no signal. Hubauer Shop (Germany) is very good for diagrams. For the front, apparently there's backing plates on the front bumper/fender. Part number: 51117414362. You need last 7 digits of you...

Re: Picking up my 2020 i3S REX today

I cycled across Canada back in the mid 90s with my brother and remember Saskatchewan well. Mind you it was early summer, but cross winds and trucks coming too close were all we had to contend with. :D Back to your i3. Consider some sort of insulation or cover for the charger if the car will be outsi...

Re: PDC error

Just an update. Finally got hold of dealer diagnostics, ISTA+. I read through the codes regards PMA front outer right module park distance control. Now for all I know this could be historical and not recurring. I cleared all the codes and so far, nothing has come back. With the i3 - once the code is...

I need to get some sort of scanning device as I'm whistling in the wind otherwise and using the collective expertise of owners on here.

Thanks alohart. Have opted for ISTA-D software instead. Will keep you posted.

Re: PDC error

I still haven't resolved this fault between work and taking a week or so annual leave away from the computer. Welcome to lock-down 2021. So tonight my wife said there's a new error - seat-belt restraint and airbag. Honestly - what is it with this car? So it got me thinking, say these are false error...

Re: Used i3 checklist - what's the first things you recommend doing after receiving the car?

I've got a couple of threads on this under REx specific forum. I think the rubber gaiters are worth repairing, but even if using genuine BMW parts, then don't expect to see them last longer than 2-3 years. A lot of this is dependant on your climate. If you are spanner handy this is doable for DIY me...

Re: Drivetrain malfunction + sudden 22% drop in GOM

I think there's something regards wet conditions. I know there have been reports of corrosion on HV connections which throws up error. Check out Shaun Dobbie videos on YouTube. He's been plagued with drivetrain errors to date, but he has REx model.

Re: Lost Socket Nut in Front Bay

Might be worth getting an endoscope attachment for your smartphone so you can drop that down in the frunk area. Get one with LED light and decent Megapixel so the pictures you get back make sense. Once you've located it which is half the battle, then I've recovered lost sockets before with Gorilla t...

Re: Corrosion - BMW i3

These cars are not immune from rust. Water, road salt, etc. Your suspension components will take a hammering, but its just one of these things. Brake discs and hubs too. Very much depends on your environment. In Europe you get a product like Lanogard which you can spray on sub frames and suspension ...

Re: Error 21F0D1

Have you been able to charge since? I tend to work back to see if there's been anything that might have triggered it. Used a new rapid charger, any other errors that have been flagged? If you're state-side can you charge the car with the 240v mains mobile charger? I don't know a great detail about t...
