View Full Version : Defective E39 HFM
06-20-2004, 10:40 AM
Does anybody have a dead/defective E39 540 HFM all I need is the housing.
I need to put a custom element in it as I have software from AA for my turbo setup and it requires a 3.5" HFM.
If anybody knows a local garage that is throwing away the old one please let me know.

I sent rush a pm but no response. If anybody comes across the HFM from a 540i please email or let me know. :)

can you show me a pic on how your sensor mounts onto the housing, I work at MB I got a lot of those housing, I know most of these european HFM are made by Bosch

For trying here is a picture of the HFM.
It is made by bosh and I think it should not matter but as long as it is 3.5" dia should hopefully work.
I would be able to tell as I have a LM 1 wideband logging the a/f, tps, Hfm, map(boost)

I found out that I need the HFM from a 540 or 740 year 1997 to 1998 as from 1999+ the connector is square and will not fit.

Still looking for a housing if anybody knows any Bmw service shop that has changed and defective one and throwing away the housing.

Im still looking for a 1996 to 1997 the part numbers ends in 800.
I got 2 HFM from a 540i from a 1998+ but the connectors are not compatible. :(
If anybody has a 3.5" hfm housing and will fit the connector shown please let me know.

when you take the sensor out what kind of hole is it, the MB HFM I have has a rectangle shape sensor but the hole is round
08-11-2004, 05:08 PM
Quack I hope this picture helps yes the sensor is rectangle.
Is this what you needed to see ??
I have the housing that you need. It's from my Euro 3.0 litre. I will talk to you tomorrow.
