Just to give you a heads-up on 525i installations.
- It makes the job easier to move the adjacent plastic relay board to
get the DME out.
It's held on by 2 10mm nuts - Be careful not to drop them in the
- Two steel pressure clips hold the DME in. They are removed by pulling
straight up with a pair of needle-nosed plier. Just press them FIRMLY
back in place.
- I broke off one of the tabs on the DME when I crimped them back down
with a pair of pliers ( to seal them back). VERY soft material.
- The instructions for the removal of the white plastic cover on the
EPROM were somewhat vague. I found that you needed to put the pocket flat
blade driver straight down and then move the handle towards the inside of the
chip. That is, lever the blade to the outside of the chip.
Other than that, it took me 20 minutes and I am VERY pleased with the result.
If you look on the 5 series board, I have posted a quick report
(mentioning you buy name!)
Thanks for your help Josh. BTW - How do I get a "Shark" sticker!!!!
