DIY Video – BMW “Pencil Style” Coil Replacement – Install How To – M54, M62, N62
Late model BMW “pencil” coils require special attention during installation, to assure proper installation. Failure to follow the steps and notes shown in this video may result in engine fault codes and/or a no-start situation.
This video will assume that the installer is familiar with the standard ignition coil replacement procedures and has access to the appropriate repair manuals for the applicable BMW models. Repair manuals are available from Bavarian Autosport. The video shows the 6-cylinder installation; 8-cylinder and 12-cylinder are similar.
If your BMW uses the earlier “bolt-in” coils with the round or square upper coil sections, see our DIY video for coil and spark plug replacement on these models. CLICK HERE to see the video.
