      Actually, no. Reason: The charging plug is electrically 'dead', until the charger and the vehicle have completed their 'handshake' (which is how the charger decides how much current it can output,...

      Run an Auto-Scan on the car, and post it. Unless you want to type out seventy-two faults..... ;)

      Hi, irj,

      First, welcome to the Vortex! ((shakes hand))

      To the problems:

      Yes, definitely ditch the JBL crossovers. In this particular application, they aren't needed. Because, as you've...

      Does oil pressure drop at idle? Of course! But, so long as the engine is running, oil is moving.
      The reason to NOT rev the engine is that the goal is to let the turbo spin down and cool down,...

      Apologies for the blurriness - zoom was only able to do so much.
      But.... Nissan Rogue, "handsfree trunk opening" sticker - and, it's HUGE!

      Sorry, slightly mis-remembered. E65 had a driver's seat-occupancy detection mat - if that went to 'not occupied' with the door open, then the trans went into Park.

      Already have had that (at least over here at BMW) for, oh, long years now.
      As of introduction of the 'e-shifter' (first in E65; went to the full line starting with E70 X5 in MY '07):

      That is a B5.5, yes. Not the most common combo (wagon / MT); but, I think less unicorny than a 1.8T 5MT 4Mo wagon (such want!), or a W8 6MT wagon.....

      While a good idea, it won't necessarily prove (or disprove) that the bearing has failed. With double-row ball bearings, the bearing can be quite wasted, with zero play. If there IS play, then it's...

      Has your mechanic suggested (and replaced) the RF wheel bearing yet?

      Could always try an anti-glare film.
      I'm in the same boat (DDX-574BH in my '02 Passat), and the daytime glare (even with tinted windows) can (sometimes) pretty much obliterate the display. One of...

      As I recall, the MAP sensor (boost pressure sensor) is installed in the intercooler, near the outlet fitting.

      Fix the 'multiple / random misfire' fault first, though. Water in the spark plug...

      Absolutely you can use a pressure bleeder!
      Pro tips:
      1- pressure is your friend. The reservoir (on most any car) is usually rated for 2 bar (29psi) pressure. Take advantage of that.
      2- flow...
