This process explains how to find and remove the EWS security systems in all BMW’s that use EWS 3. To remove EWS:
- EWS box looks like a white box with a black connector and is located right under the steering column over to the left-hand side.
- To get to this place under the steering, you have to loosen the black piece of plastic. The plastic is attached with the help of a few Phillip head screws which can be easily removed.
- Once completely, removed look under the steering and you will see the EWS located right over the pedals to the left-hand side.
- The EWS is held tight with two 10 millimeter knots that are very easy to disconnect by hand. It is recommended that you use a ratchet with an extension to easily release the knots.
Whenever we work on your engine computer, you always need to send it with one key and your EWS.
