Locating ADAS Information: BMW/MINI

Locating ADAS Information: BMW/MINI

As a collision repair technician, there is one part of a service manual that houses all of the information you would ever need…right? This is not the case with modern vehicles. You may be required to look in numerous manuals to find the information required to safely repair the vehicle.

The Repairability Technical Support Portal (RTS) has videos posted to show you how to navigate specific OEM body repair manuals (BRMs), but this sometimes just gets you in the door. If you are looking for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) information in the BRM, you may not find any information at all. ADAS information is not normally located in the body repair manual. You may have to go into the service manual to find ADAS or a separate manual altogether. Luckily, the RTS team has already navigated most of the OEM repair manuals and we’ve found the ADAS information. Let’s see where to find ADAS information from BMW/MINI.

After accessing your subscription and entering the vehicle information in the keyword search, a list of tabs will show up along the top of the screen. Click on Repair instructions. Upon opening this, on the left of the screen, there will be a tab that appears called Unified Parts Group. Click on this, which will then open up a document tree. All of the ADAS information for BMW and MINI will be found under the tab, 66 – Distance systems, cruise control, remote key. This includes parking sensors, automatic cruise control radar, blind spot radar, various cameras, and more.
