Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

Replaced the very wobbly shifter linkage in my M635 with new parts. Replaced the shifting rod and the T-linkage without removing the drive shaft. Quite a challenge, but feels so much more precise now. :mrgreen: Also fitted the original round shifter head I found in mint condition at the Veterama som...

Re: wind noise ... how to hush it down a bit??

May you should replace the sunroof seal. It's not that big deal and helped quite a bit on my M. The seal was pretty squeezed together before adjusting. So it wasn't sealing anymore. Otherwise you may press the door seal from the inside while driving. That's how I found the exact noisy position. Some...

It's such a nice landscape up there. Some day I need to bring my M635 there too.
Is your front licence plate properly mounted. It looks a bit tilted.

Will you bring Cosmo to munich on the weekend?

Re: Radio stuck

Normaly you should be able to pull out the radio of the frame. The frame can stay in the console. Some BMW radios fit in there without this frame.

Re: New Owner

You can hardly assume function from the manufacturer name. Hella and VDO produce all kind of car electronics.
The black box under the dash is the intensive washer controller (Steuergerät für Intensivreinigung).

Re: Central console - how to open up?

In the earlier post 82 E24 you can remove the black brush and push out these two squares on the right from the inside. Should be possible without removing the brush too.
Below you'll find a hex bolt. Withe these two removed you can remove the comsole.

Re: sunroof seal gap?

I replaced mine some weeks ago too. Due the steel inlay it's impossible to cut it on spot so it looks quite similar on my sunroof. On one side I got an gap of ~1mm. As my old seal was in a bad shape the wind noise decreased with the new seal dramatically. I'd recommend to adjust the roof carefully t...

I'd say these pics won't fit together. Where is the battery if it's not in the trunk nor driver side behind the headlights? From what I see the engine is a turbo M88/3. But why is there not a single word on the turbo? Maybe it could be a 635CSi with an M88/3 engine swap but no genuine M635 Edit: Jus...
