BMW Installation Instructions

These installation instructions are not valid for cars with the aerodynamics package or M sport package SA 337)

Retrofit kit No.:

66 20 0 418 636 Park Distance Control retrofit kit, rear
66 20 0 418 637 Park Distance Control retrofit kit, front
66 20 0 428 637 Park Distance Control retrofit kit, rear

Installation time

The installation time for the rear PDC retrofit and the front PDC upgrade/retrofit is approx. 3.5 hours each.

If the rear PDC retrofit and the front PDC upgrade are installed at the same time, the installation time is approx.

5.5 hours. The installation time may vary depending on condition of the car and the equipment in it.

The vehicle must be updated to the latest I-level status by flashing before installing the retrofit. Differing programming times may be necessary depending on the production age of the vehicle and on work previously performed on the vehicle.

The installation time given does not include time needed for programming/encoding.

The total costs for the programming time should be taken into account when calculating retrofitting costs (reimbursement through warranty is not permissible).

Important information

These installation instructions are primarily designed for use within the BMW dealership organisation and by authorised BMW service companies.

In any event, the target group for these installation instructions is specialist personnel trained on BMW cars with the appropriate specialist knowledge.

All work must be completed using the latest BMW repair manuals, circuit diagrams, servicing manuals and work instructions in a rational order using the prescribed tools (special tools) and observing current health and safety regulations.

If you experience installation or function problems, limit troubleshooting to approx. 0.5 hours for mechanical or 1.0 hour for electrical work.

In order to reduce costs and avoid any additional expense, send a query immediately to the Technical Parts Support via the Aftersales Assistance Portal (ASAP).

Specify the following information: – Chassis number

  • Part number of the retrofit kit
  • A precise description of the problem- Work steps already carried out

Do not archive the hard copy of these installation instructions since daily updates are made by ASAP.

Installation information

Ensure that the cables and/or lines are not kinked or damaged as you install them in the car. The costs thereby incurred will not be reimbursed by BMW AG.

Additional cables/lines that you install must be secured with cable ties.

If the specified PIN chambers are occupied, bridges, double crimps or twin-lead terminals must be used.

After the installation work, the retrofit must be programmed / coded via the Retrofit or Conversion path.

All pictures show LHD cars; proceed accordingly on RHD cars.
