JL Germany sensors are junk...that was your first mistake.

SAE Code P0102
DTC Code 16486
Description Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input

Visually check all of your vacuum hoses for tears / cracks / holes.

I carry OEM Cam sensors if you need them.

My Ride: 2001 330i steel blue
I replaced mine with one from Bavauto, it did not have a name on it, since then I have had a stutter when shutting the car off, I think I will replace it with an OEM one, sometimes I turn off the car and it shutters and knocks for a second

One question...what does FEBI stand for or is that a brand name?...thanks

febi is brand name and is not OEM. i've heard the ones that bavauto sell are OEM but not the redesigned/updated sensors.

THe size of my bavauto one was much different than the OEM, much fatter, I wonder if it is what is causing P0102 and my stutter on shutdown.

Is a great DIY but I cannot get the plug off. I then tried to use some large pliers to help and one of the prongs broke off. Not exactly sure what to do at this point.

Good to hear I'm not the only knuckle head who broke the prongs with a big wrench! I still haven't been able to get the darn thing off. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm thinking it might be easier to unbolt it, then try and take it off... But I'd also like to replace the whole wire assembly since I snapped it. Not sure where the cable leads to yet.

Thanks Demon Eyes Kyo. This is a great DYI.

I got the same error code and replaced that part and my car runs better and the code no longer there.
Parts including "o" ring cost me $126.

It's a tight spot, so it took me about an hour and half, because I had to use a socket wrench with a 5mm hex and extensions to reach the hex screw.

THANKS,
Please - stop with the all caps - it is shouting and makes it hard to read.

I have an Actron - the manual is pretty good - start there. Then google Actron CP9575 functions - there are probably Youtube videos of the things it can do...

I had some sluggishness in performance under 40MPH, especially at take off. Since replacing the sensor this is not an issue. I was glad to see this post still up. It help me to R&R my Sensor on my own. It was easy with the right tools. I had a flat headed 3/8 drive ratchet with a 5mm socket to hold the 5mm hex and it came right out. Easy.

Thanks for the pics of the part location and the part itself. The new part looks a little different than the old, but it is correct. The pic of the new part helped ease some initial concern that I had gotten the wrong part.

Very Helpful

Thank you Demon Eyes Kyo for the detailed DIY. Just completed this project on my '01 with 143K. Bought OEM as most suggested. $121 plus $1.68 for the "o" ring. Half an hour and I'm back on the road.

Got the P0365 code.
Tested the sensor. Got 0V when a piece of metal is in front of it and 5V when it was removed.
Pulled the solenoid and tested it with a AA battery, and the pin moved out as it should.
I clear the code with my code reader and it always comes back after about 10-15 minutes of driving.
By looking at other threads, the VANOS seals look like a likely culprit.
Sooooo....Is there any further troubleshooting and simple things I can look into before ripping into the damn VANOS?
