Important information

The retrofit kit is for use within the BMW dealership organisation only.

Do not kink or damage the cables during the installation work since otherwise they may cause
faults that can later only be identified by extensive additional work. The costs incurred as a result
of this will not be reimbursed by BMW.
If the specified PIN chambers are already occupied, bridges, double crimps or twin-lead
terminals must be used.

These installation instructions describe the installation work for LHD cars. On RHD cars some
work must be completed the opposite way round.
