Where is the footwell module location

Across many Internet forums worldwide, this question is asked with no real answer, just guesses that it could be in the ‘footwell’.

Well we’ve decided to show the location for people who are attempting some DIY work.

This is shown on a 2007 130i.



New footwell module on left (FRM3). Notice the extra ventilation holes. Perhaps BMW suggesting that failures are heat related.


The new module will need coding to the car once fitted. You’ll need a diagnostic machine with coding capabilities to get the module functional.
