Becker Mexico Dash Mounting-Securing

Hi all, Does anyone have, or has anyone removed, a Becker Mexico from their e24 that can tell me how it is secured to and then released from the dash? I purchased one originally installed in a MB then sent it off to Becker to check/repair, have an AUX input and universal cam locking mounts installed...

Re: Roof Trim Clips

I had the same problem. Luckily found a wrecked e24 in a salvage yard so took a flyer and drove 45 minutes. Sure enough, there were 2!

Best of luck!!

Re: 85 euro m635csi - my project

I too went back with the single row set up mostly because I knew I wasn't going to put another 60-100k miles on it again and I didn't want to machine the head. Luckily 15 years ago when I did it, all the parts were readily available. I went ahead and just pulled the engine while time consuming on th...

Re: Completely confused as to why my engine isn't running right

I would also start with what daz635 said but if that all checks out, look at the AFM again. I had a similar no start issue, and the sweep arm on my AFM was "stuck". I pulled the cover and cleaned the contacts, plugged it back in and it started right away.

Re: Recommendations for ECU repair on 85 M635?

Yes, the second unit is often referred to the "Johnson Box" for emissions. I'm not sure if my car ever had one....the wire from the O2 Sensor just dead ends in the glove box.

Re: Correct Gasket for In-Tank Fuel Pump

Ralph,

Thanks much! That clears up which gasket I should use. So I must have a U.S. fuel tank? The date on my pre-supply pump is 1985 so maybe it was changed when it was imported?? Interesting stuff!

Correct Gasket for In-Tank Fuel Pump

Gents, A while back I started smelling a bit of fuel vapor in my trunk, so I thought that perhaps the gaskets on the in-tank pump and/or sending unit may have dried out and failed, so I ordered the sending unit gasket and 161221116966: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/partxref?q=161221116966&series=E...

Re: Recommendations for ECU repair on 85 M635?

I used Specialized ECU Repair in FL a number of years ago: https://porschedme.com/pages/about-us They did a great job. The manager is Jorge Morales. It looks like they might have a reconditioned one in stock for a cool $1245: https://porschedme.com/collections/bmw-m6-1984-1987 I just sent mine to th...

Fuel smell/small leak/pressure in tank after filling

I nearly filled my M635 full with fuel this past weekend (I typically don't fill it all the way up, but I wasn't paying close enough attention), drove for about 15 miles and parked. When I came back to the car, I noticed a fuel smell especially when I opened the trunk, then small amount of fuel unde...

I have one as well and was working with "Arif" a week or so ago to ship to the UK, but the shipping was stoopid crazy $$$. Please let me know if you know of a reasonable shipping method!
