One moment please
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
nothing in info request
Expert:  Steve replied 4 years ago.

I am posting the info now

 

Expert:  Steve replied 4 years ago.

Hi again,

 

Please do not forget to press "ACCEPT" as this is the only way I receive credit for the info I have provided - thanks!

 

The VVT control unit is at the back of the engine compartment, per this image: CLICK HERE TO VIEW IMAGE and then press download to save a copy

 

There is no such thing as a "wiring diagram" for this car. BMW only has a live wiring database that must be clicked through circuit by circuit and zoomed, scrolled, etc.

 

There is no single wiring diagram that they provide.

 

Please let me know if you have further questions.

 

Since I have answered your question, I would kindly ask that you please press the green "ACCEPT" button so that I receive credit for doing so.

 

 

thank you in advance.
