Re: Help with part identification

Can't help with the guide but the flexible rubber boot from the door to door pillar is part of the door wiring loom.

Re: Opinions on exterior mod that won't be "visible"

I am considering replacing the reflectors in the front bumper side surrounds with actual lights

What's the reason? Interesting different laws in different lands. That sort of thing wouldn't be allowed over here. especially being orange/red. However we don't emission test like you guys in Cal.

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

Yeah you need the right hose. You mind find it difficult to get the otiker clamp tool on the hoses connecting to the filler tank neck in which case look at using fuel injection hose clamps. They pull up evenly and don't cut into the hose like a jubilee clamp. Also be aware is easy to break the hose ...

That's interesting as I always thought the last 3 digits were month and year of manufacture

Re: Trickle Charger on Cigarette Lighter?

Maybe a better solution would be to install a dedicated socket, wired directly to the battery, which could be located somewhere out of sight.
Is what I did above^^. Maybe isn't clear, that's a lighter socket next to the isolating switch

Re: Trickle Charger on Cigarette Lighter?

I've done this for a number of years now, using a C-Tek charger. See pic. Works fine and I have a modern ECU.
I do the same with my boat.

Re: Cabin Constantly Hot, Need Help

If your heater control is on full cold and your heater valve is working properly this should be regulating the water flow through your heater core.

The new "BMW" heater valve I purchased was not good. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=31277&p=223549&hili ... ve#p223549

I've got a couple of these https://goodnature.co.nz/products/a24-rat-stoat as every winter they invade the woodpile and have got in under the roof space before, and we no longer have a cat.

Re: Ex LOCUTUS the fun and pain begin

Basically I followed the instructions for the 3M 90 adhesive. I didn't remove the hood, but covered everything I didn't want adhesive on. Sprayed both surfaces (one section at a time) and let dry until tacky - just a few minutes, and of course with any contact adhesive line up carefully before apply...

Have a look at these products by CorrosionX, specified by a number of high end reel manufacturers. Have good adhesion properties.

Nice wheels. I think shadow chrome would look better on your car but is very subjective.

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

The spring return was buggered in mine and I couldn't get a definitive answer on what needed replacing so replaced both the switch and the ignition lock barrel (swapped over the cylinder). From memory the spring return is in the switch. Either way it's not too difficult a job but painful. If no one'...
