I went and picked up an OEM bmw sensor from BMW (just to make sure) and I figured replacing the seals was the next best step. So now that I replaced the seals + sensor (OEM), where should I be looking next? Do I have to drive the car around a lot for the CPS issue to be remedied? I only drove the car around the block for about 20 seconds.
Did you install the piston spring on the correct side?
