    2008 E92 M3 with 121,895 miles.
    Hello All!
    Quick questions as I will need to replace my leaking Windshield Fluid Tank quite soon:
    1). How do I gain access to it as it appears to be inside the passenger (left) wheel well? Does the entire inner wheel arch need to be removed?
    2). Getting the "steering angle sensor" error. It is something I can easily replace myself?

    Recently replaced my OEM composite water pump with a metal impeller & new drive pulley as well as all cooling hoses, drive belts and installed the CSF all aluminum radiator. Very easy to do and I am happy to report all is doing well.
    Cheers!

    Yes the passenger side wheel well liner will have to come out to remove the washer tank.

    What are the faults your getting for the steering angle sensor?

    Hello Charlson89!
    Thanks for your response. Really appreciate it. The fault code I am getting for the steering angle sensor is:
    "5FE1/present EDC: Steering angle, correction value exceeded"
    Thank You!

    For that fault code I would try to calibrate the steering angle sensor and see if the fault comes back. If it won't calibrate then it will need to be replaced.
