Re: My 6'er

I went through a similar issue, recall getting a different mount and then found a number of posts here and on MyE28, discussing the different options etc. I suspect there are more than a few similarly deteriorated mounts driving around out there. No help though on the correct ride height settings th...

Re: 16 piece front suspension kits

As you will have read there is a lot of discussion on Lemforder vs Meyle. Reliable advice I received was Lemforder arms have better ball joints, but replace the bushes with the Meyle HD inserts. If you do this make sure you get the correct width (to correspond with your mounts) For lower arms consid...

Re: G265 Shifter Arm Orientation

Rangi, these aren't the slickest gearboxes to use so take the opportunity while you can to remove as much play as possible.

Re: PS can overflow

Pressure accumulator depressurises over time when not used for a period spewing overfill amount out top of canister. Correct fill level is 10mm below top when fully depressurised. You will note after running ATF fluid level drops. With engine off pump break pedal circa 20 times or until hard and you...

Re: Heater valve wanted uk

Don't want to muddy the waters but thought it might be helpful sharing my experience with the heater valve. The MTC repair kit I used didn't work that well. It didn't leak but the heater operation wasn't right. When I rebuilt the engine I then forked out a huge amount for a BMW OEM complete replacem...

Re: Cabin fuel smell

Check also: - The filler cap gasket - Lines / hoses to the charcoal canister if fitted (up front). There is a long hard line that is fed from the expansion tank that runs under the car. - The external fuel pump itself. Not that long ago mine started leaking, at fist intermittently, at which point I ...

Most of the OBC functions die, except clock and o/s temp - which are all I ever use. Was difficult for my auto sparky to maintain the ABS wa...
