Default S50 MC Cruise control retrofit by Wania

please check whether you have:

1. under glove box blue 26 pin terminal:



2. under the hood, between left front wheel housing and fuse box - black/purple pin terminal





3. under stering wheel 6 pin terminal for cruise control switch






4. between pedals, 2 pin terminal blue/black and blue/red cables for clutch switch:



if you have these things you must buy:

1. Cruise control actuator nr 65718369027 - fit from E39, E38 NOT FIT from E36!!!:







2. Cruise control switch nr 61318360926 - fit from E36, E31 i Z3 - the best with 6 pin terminal




3. Control unit f cruise control nr 65711387625 - fit from E31, E32, E34, E36 i Z3 - silver metal, NOT black plastic




4. clutch switch nr 61318360421 - OEM it is very expensive, is putting the substitute forward for example EPS nr 7.1110 cheaper ten times





5. Bowden cable f cruise control nr 65712228746





6. Bearing accelator bowden cable nr 13541747519






do the hole in the visible place in lower trim panel





we are connecting everything, et voila - READY!


ps. if you buy 8 pin terminal cruise control switch please conect cables in this way:



blue green - blue green
blue black - blue black
blue WHITE - blue GREY
blue YELLOW - blue WHITE

The S54 is much simpler plug and play retrofit.

The two wire connector between pedals, was it free without jump connector or such? I do have that kind connector with the similar coloured cables but its connected allready. I allready bought all except the module.
