Re: Quick Question on Drive Shaft U-Joints

SLOWNRUSTY; I've had a hard time getting here at times so, here goes I hope; I trust Ralph and I'll add this: if you remove the whole driveshaft, meaning the front too, you might want to replace the Guibo/rubber donut at the front? I asked here quite a while ago & was told if I remember to point the...

RHanley
Thanx for the quick response! And, I don't have one on Buster so, I'll start there. I'm guessing that when someone installs the tin plate it's bottom side up?

Part # to stop leakage under driver's carpet?

I don't know where it comes from but, rain water ends up under the driver's carpet. It seems to be a slow leak? Would it be the door rubber or from the windsheild grille? I know I need the heater valve. It's better to email me at [email protected].com because I find it hard to come here for some reason...

Before I remove the squirrel cages, should I be concerned with finding a balance marker so the new one won't be outta balance as it rotates? Or just mark the left & right on the spindle? :-k

Re: E12 based car

As an E12 E24 car owner, I know that parts are not readily available for the E12!!
You/we have to search & at the same time get lucky to find parts! :-({|=
BMW sadly feels our E12 E24's are too old to deal with!
The change-over year to the E28 E24 is '82.

Re: Need quick response guys

Ronnie; the main reason it can't be done is because the '82 is probably an E12 suspension but, your '86 is definitely an E28 in the chassis department! You can of course, double check to see if your '82 is an E12, that's what I did to confirm stuff years ago. I say that because my Buster is an '82 w...
