Re: No Speedometer

Perhaps the batteries in the SI board are dead or defective. Recall that I had similar problems with a non functioning tachometer and the S.I. board batteries were dead. Once they were replaced everything was normal.

Re: What DO the prices (on BaT) mean?

Phillip, I am watching that 13mile Schwarz M6 also and quite frankly It appears to have significantly more miles on it than advertised. In some respects my 1985 looks better. I am hesitant to put my car in BaT because of the 180K miles they would probably list it only with a "No Reserve" and given t...

Re: What DO the prices (on BaT) me

I have been trying to sell my 1985 635CSi here in Ontario, Canada as I am trying to downsize to move into an apartment. It is every bit as nice and rust free as any that I see sell on BaT for $10-12US. I had mine advertised on a Canada wide Kijiji ( like Craig's List) priced at $15k Canadian, then $...

Re: Sport Seat Hip Bolster Pushed Outward- update

I see that the bolster is broken at the front of the seat. It looks like a horizontal round bar that has snapped loose. I suspect that it could be welded with a TIG welder without removing the leather.

Re: Sport Seat Hip Bolster Pushed Outward

Thankss. Taking the seat out shouldn't be a big problem but does the leather bolster have to be removed to access the metal ?

Sport Seat Hip Bolster Pushed Outward

The driver side sport seat on my 1985 has the hip bolster on the left side of the bottom cushion pushed outward towards the door probably by a large sized butt of a PO. I would like to get it put back into the correct position as the thigh support switch bracket is also broken and I have a new one o...

Re: FS: 1985 BMW 635CSi (5-speed)

Good luck with the auction. I will be very interested to see what the car sells for since I am also trying to sell mine with little interest in it here in Ontario. Mine is just about the same condition with no rust.

Re: F/S 1985 635CSi

Thanks once agin for the advice and positive comments. This is indeed a truly rust free car. I doubt it was ever driven in winter and even then I have had it oil sprayed to ensure it stays that way. The paint is almost flawless as well. BaT seems the way to hold. I have a nephew who is a professiona...

F/S 1985 635CSi

Attached is a link to the kijiji site where I have an ad posted to sell my 1985 635CSi. I really hate to let it go but during the past two years my health has prevented me from using it more than a few hundred kilometres a year. I have had almost 900 viewers and almost no interest in the car from bu...

Re: Paintless Dent Removal - Taking the plunge

I had a professional dent remover try to take a small dent from the top of drivers side fender of my 1985 635CSi. He removed some of it but stopped saying the metal was too thick for him to finish the job and if he forced the metal it would crack the paint.

I can get gas here in northwestern Ontario, Canada for as low as $0.95 a litre. That's about $2.70 US for 1 US gallon.

Re: OBC Remote Not Working...?

Yes the switch moves in and out and is marked "BC" also so I presume it is corrrect switch. Maybe just a bad contact so when I have an opportunity or really bored I might remove the switch and clean it. The OBC otherwise works as it should.

OK although getting to that wire will be a challenge. Isn't the OBC a PITA to remove? . Thanks for the advice.

OBC Remote Not Working...?

Very minor item to be sure but the remote feature in the turn signal stalk does not change the OBC features as it was intended. I actually didn't even know the car (1985 635CSi) had the feature until I ran the V.I.N. I have never used it in the 8 years I have owned the car so it is not a big deal bu...

Re: Greetings - Newbie Here

Welcome to this great forum. You will find very knowledgeable and helpful members here. I store my 635CSi for about 5-6 months every year and do not put the car on jack stands but instead pump the tires up to about 50 p.s.i. to avoid flat spotting. Leaving the car on jack stands is not good for the ...

Re: which computer drives the Check Engine light

The light and a chime comes on whenever the ignition is on. The brake light out warning light on the left side light out panel should also come on until you press the brake. Possibly the brake light switch under the brake pedal is defective or not adjusted if it still doesn't go out when you push th...
