Re: Magnetic oil drain plug for i3 REx ?

In case anyone else is trying to remove and replace their stripped oil plug, I got lucky with my first attempt and ordered THIS magnetic, "outer" hex-style drain plug from Amazon that fit perfectly and was far easier to screw back in without the fear of stripping. https://www.amazon.com/dp...

Re: REX drain plug rounded out

You can try a bolt extractor, auto part stores carry them. https://www.amazon.com/Olsa-Tools-Extractor-Clearance-Professional/dp/B08MVGXTRF/ref=sr_1_7_sspa?crid=UM5AJ2HGQX6L&keywords=bolt%2Bextractor&qid=1673895314&sprefix=bolt%2Bextracto%2Caps%2C172&sr=8-7-spons&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdG...

REX drain plug rounded out

During last year's oil change on the REX, I noticed the internal hex head of the drain plug is soft and starting to round out. Fast forward to this year's oil change and, even being careful with it, the socket wrench instantly stripped when I tried to unscrew it. I now have a stuck oil pan plug and ...

Re: Replacing REX fuel temp/pressure sensor

I'm in a 2014 also. The gas engine has a 15 year 150k miles warranty on it. Got approved by BMW NA today for the warranty work :D Check into your warranty. The battery and gas engine have special warranties on them that extend past the vehicle warranty. AH! I had no idea there were separate warrant...

Re: Replacing REX fuel temp/pressure sensor

They said they were having difficulty translating the codes so they needed to send them to BMW headquarters. Heard back today that it needs a new gas motor. Service rep was going thru the numbers (~5g labor, waiting on motor cost) and i reminded him the gas motor is still under warranty. So that's ...

Re: Replacing REX fuel temp/pressure sensor

Well I've got good news and bad news. Codes are currently clear, so that's good. But unfortunately the guy that did it isn't willing to detail what he did to fix it, so thats not great news. Here's my guess. Replacing the fan doesn't seem to have immediately fixed the issue, so I wouldn't start wit...

Re: Replacing REX fuel temp/pressure sensor

Also, regarding P14FA, where did you find the OBD2 description for this code? I haven't been able to find anything on it. And it confuses me a bit why it would be for exhaust gas temp sensor, as these are typically only for diesel engines. Also can't find anything on the i3 having an exhaust gas te...

Re: Replacing REX fuel temp/pressure sensor

Interesting PDF, thanks for adding that. It did not get rid of the P14FA code. I've had that code for a long time and it tends to be intermittent so I haven't been focusing on it. I need to fic the P0480 before the end of month for inspection, so we're gonna find a solution to this!! I have been me...
