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

Re: Unwanted visitor

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. They are NZ made, but you may have something similar. They automatically reset, with bait and gas cylinder las...

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...

Re: Lubricating the windshield wiper arm system with?

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

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'...

Re: Passenger Door Lock Cam Repair - PART

Good job Regarding the door boots. I replaced mine some time ago - had to buy the whole door loom. The thing with these is the transition sections to the rectangular shaped flanges aren't stiff enough, and collapse, resulting in the flange continually pulling out of the door post - had to bond them ...

Re: ABS

Essentially, if the ABS light stays on after starting but before moving issue will be with either the ABS relays or the ABS unit itself. If comes on only after mobile will be sensor related. I recently had the former issue, replaced the relays, no change , so sourced a 2nd hand ABS unit which solved...

Re: M90 Engine Or Not?

Be happy! M90s are notorious for burning head gaskets between the cylinders where they are thinner than the m30b34. Ask me how I know. :)
This must be what Jeremy Walton refers to in his book when talking about the development of the M30b34

Re: My 6'er

Before you panic too much check it hasn't come from the power steer reservoir, which can happen if overfilled and the car not run for a few weeks or more. It will likely run along the chassis rail and drip to ground somewhere around the centre of the cross member.

Re: Driveline upgrade M635csi

Hi Gaz. Weclome back, you've been missing a while. Baders, I have the rear K Macs - they do a good job of correcting the rear camber squat with Bilstein sports / H&R's, but do stiffen things up a bit. Replaced the below tyres late last year - 255/40/17 on 9" RC ET22 rims with 15mm spacers. 35,000 k'...
