Mine warms up at the top first, then takes a few minutes to do the rest of the wheel, have you left it on for a while to test it?

Or if there is vibro, then there definately should be heating?

If there is a working vibrator, then there should be a heating element and the right control box in the wheel. Just need the button and trim.

LIN_VARIANTE_SZL = szl_4Band
LRE_Verbaut = aktiv
Did you code 248 to VO? Or just these FDLs?

Just did that coding with BimmerCode and it all worked. Didn't want to change the VO as the car is still under warranty

Sorry, can't help you with that, might be worth a bit of intensive googling to see what you can find for your model

That's my first foray into Bimmercode Expert.
All very painless so far.

Some of the coding lines were already "activ" on mine for whatever reason.
Just had to change LHZ to activ and szl_4 and to activ

For those considering this retrofit...

You don't need any tools to do this!
If you want to check your wheel for elements, then a Torx driver is needed. You can use this driver to release the airbag (after disconnecting the battery). You can do this one side at a time as there is enough play when one side of the airbag is released to do the other side. No need to disconnect the bag if you're just checking for elements. I would suggest that if you have the bag off, you can see the large connector for the wires without taking off the trim piece.

Adjust the wheel position to the lowest and furthest out.
See the curtain between the cowl and instruments - it's held by 4 pegs on the cowl. A good tug will release it.
Then an upward tug on the top cowl will pull it off
Pull the tabs on the latch for the lower cowl and that's off too.
The key transponder will pull out.
The lower curtain has 3 pegs that hold it.

The wires on the new switch are short - the plug locating tab is orientated to the middle of the car - it's a bit awkward to see but you can do it by touch.

Parts:
The Parts chap at Rybrook said the number on the first page of the thread for the cowl had been superceded and is now 61319219551. It fits!
When I checked RealOEM.com for the switch, I noticed the number on page 1 was for pre-2015 cars. I ordered the switch appropriate for my LCI which is 61319384363 - just in case any connectors were different. This has a chrome/brushed metal surround.

And the wheel gets warm quickly - you can feel the warmth even before the engine quietens down from its start sequence.

Thanks to contributors to this thread!!!
