Installation time

The installation time for cars with SA 644 is approx. 2.0 hours, and approx. 2.25 hours for cars with SA 640.

The installation time will be approx. 2.5 hours for cars without SA 640 or SA 644.

This may vary depending on the condition of the car and the equipment in it.

The vehicle must be updated to the latest I-level status by flashing before installing the retrofit. Differing programming times may be necessary depending on the production age of the vehicle and on work previously performed on the vehicle.

 

The installation time given does not include time needed for programming/encoding.

The total costs for the programming time should be taken into account when calculating retrofitting costs (reimbursement through warranty is not permissible).

 

Important information

These installation instructions are primarily designed for use within the BMW dealership organisation and by authorised BMW service companies.

In any event, the target group for these installation instructions is specialist personnel trained on BMW cars with the appropriate specialist knowledge.

All work must be completed using the latest BMW repair manuals, circuit diagrams, servicing manuals and work instructions, in a rational order, using the prescribed tools (special tools) and observing current health and safety regulations.

If you experience installation or function problems, limit troubleshooting to approx. 0.5 hour for

mechanical or 1.0 hour for electrical work.

 

In order to reduce costs and avoid any additional expense, send a query immediately to the Technical Parts Support via the Aftersales Assistance Portal (ASAP).

 

Specify the following information:

– Chassis number,

– Part number of the retrofit kit,

– A precise description of the problem,

– Work steps already carried out.

Do not archive the hard copy of these installation instructions since daily updates are made by ASAP!

Installation information

In cars with SA 620 without SA 609, High charger/hands-free electronic control unit C is already fitted, it is only necessary to fit USB retrofit cable A.

Ensure that the cables and/or lines are not kinked or damaged as you install them in the car. The costs thereby incurred will not be reimbursed by BMW AG.

Additional cables/lines that you install must be secured with cable ties.

If the specified PIN chambers are occupied, bridges, double crimps or twin-lead terminals must be used.

 

Ordering instructions

Most diagnosis connection R and Flash adapter cover S must be ordered separately for cars without Flash adapters (for part number and instructions, see EPC).

The High electronic charger/hands-free module C is not included in the retrofit kit and must be ordered separately (see EPC for part number and further details).
