Re: Window Trim removal how to?

In my experience the only way to remove the chrome trim is to cut it out of the rubber surround. This of course ruins the surround. I always use a Stanley knife, but it’s a dangerous operation, so be careful! I think it's the A piller /roof gutter /C piller trim that is to be removed Paul. I've nev...

Re: And you wonder why the front sills and floor rust ?

If you remove the speaker and trim from the A piller under the dash you will be able to get to the black drain pipe through the speaker aperture on the metal face .It's a little awkward but doable . I used 15mm OD plastic water pipe that was a good interference fit into the original black drain pipe...

Re: Value of m-sport leather interior.

I recently paid € 300 for front sports seats in as good if not better condition than those in photo. I could have had the matching rears in Parchment for another 75-100 euro , which were in good but dirty condition. Add the remaining items plus the bonus fact that it is a complete interior I'd say c...

Re: Servicing of very low usage 635s

Fresh Oil will do Phil . I'd still change it twice . First time run it up to temp , with a new filter fitted , and then drain it and change the filter again and replace with fresh oil . Depending on what oil you choose you could use a cheaper ,but still rated 15/40, for the first run through . Valve...
