Exactly my project, delete fogs and washer tank to fit Hard Motorsport race brake duct kit. Looks like the relay for the washer is behind the glove box so a short wiring run, and the level sensor goes to the instrument cluster for another short run from the passenger side entry at the bottom of the drug bin.

I'm still looking for a smaller tank and hope to find the E34/E32 intensive version since it is 1 qt. which is more than enough for occasional use and has a standard BMW pump aperture. Need to understand if there is a level sensor provision and how it attaches or works.

Anyone ever look to see if the level sensor light can be coded off of the cluster?

I've thought about that tank a couple times.


No, but likely a better solution for him with the RHD situation. I think I recall there are some 5 series with that style of fender tank as well.

The e34 intensive tank looks interesting as well, 0.9L, but no level sensor provision.

I don't remember how I came to have it, but I have a case of the BMW intensive washer fluid. I'm hoping a lot less of it is necessary to get the same amount of cleaning done, so the intensive fluid tank will last longer than you might expect :P

That would be helpful! And ease installation.

I'll take a look tonight, if nobody else has chimed in.

Looks like someone on e46fanatics used an in-line resistor to resolve the issue, see attached.

Trying to figure out if the sensor is a resistor or a "magnetic leaf switch" as I saw mentioned somewhere.

If it is a switch, then maybe the looping the ends of the connection will work. If so, then easy solution for the level sensor.

Thx,
Mike

I always prefer coding to resistors/emulators, when possible.

I don't think it's possible to code off.
