SSG accumulator test

Hi All!

I am trying to determine if my SSG's accumulator works fine in my 330Ci.
The basic idea came from this thread:
http://forums.*********.co.uk/showthread.php?t=57189

But because that thread is about only M3s, I am looking for 330 and 325 owners.

Can you guys test your cars?!

This is from the other thread:
"
Test Procedure
1. Start the engine and engage 1st gear (handbrake on!)
2. Turn off the heater fan so you can hear the engine note change
3. Using the paddles switch from 1st to 2nd to 1st to 2nd etc until the engine note changes (this is due to the load on the alternator caused by the 20A load of the SMG pump).
4. Note the number of gear changes required
5. Repeat a couple of times to check that you're getting consistent results
6. Repeat, but now time how long the pump runs. You'll hear the engine note change (and the revs rise slightly) when the SMG pump stops running.
7. Repeat a couple of times, preferably using a stopwatch (the one on a mobile phone is fine).
8. Post your results!
"

I think it is much more easier to open the door or lower the windows and you can hear the pump!!

My pump start pumping after the third change. "1-2;2-1;1-2;pump"


Thank you guys for the results!!_a_

I don't believe that this is a reliable test. You can just watch live data of hydraulic pressure in INPA.

I know, I checked it with INPA but this test can be done by anybody without any tool.
