Re: Brake pad warning triggered, does not reset

You can buy the sensor cable separately. If replacing pads it’s worthwhile. You will probably need to dismantle the brakes the access the pad to add the cable. It connects to the loom on the leg strut.

Re: Is REx worth it?

Pretty sure you’ll be taxed on this vehicle with REx. Check out Government site to check prior to purchase. 2015 REx for example will be zero road tax. Back to your dilemma. Charging infrastructure is changing all the time. The larger battery helps of course, but back up REx is attractive. The i3 is...

Re: Bmw i3 drivetrain error P0301 P0302 P0300

Do you have full diagnostic ISTA? A general OBD reader wont be able to distinguish between error codes.

When I had a drivetrain error they swapped out a CO2 sensor and even the fuel tank, but the fuel pump relay was the real culprit. Hope you get it fixed.

Re: REX Aux Fan damaged in accident

There's no way to know definitively unless you scan the car. Any additional errors would be flagged up.

Re: 2017 Rex Oil Leak

2.6 litres, I use Castrol Edge 5W30 LL but as long as compatible put it in.

Struggling to see how they could cross-thread the filter, that's a basic maintenance procedure.

Re: 2017 Rex Oil Leak

It does sound like either the dipstick cap hasn't been secured, the drain plug is loose or the oil filter has been cross-threaded. The oil sump face where the oil filter screws on is prone to corrosion as it's open to the elements. That said, not to lose as much oil as you have, and vehicle is only ...

Re: i3 Hate

And for some reason, the Tesla owners get extremely defensive about it. It's almost cult-like in nature...their behavior that is. No matter what criticism one has of the car, the service, etc....Tesla can do no wrong and the levels of acceptance for poor quality, crap service, etc...is something to...
