Join me while I change the pressure converter/boost solenoid on my 2014 BMW 535i (F10). This video applies to all 2011 to 2017 BMW 535i’s. It may also apply to other BMW’s as well that have the BMW N55 Engine. A possible BMW trouble code of ‘30ff’ may be caused by a bad pressure converter.
The pressure converter is responsible for regulating the vacuum running to your pneumatic wastegate. Here is a great video that explains some details.https://youtu.be/3SrAxPhW_Es
The service is moderately difficult if it is the first time working on this vehicle. Estimate 2 hour working slow or it is your first time performing this type of work. If you have done similar work before, estimate 30-45 minutes.
