Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

Did a run around of the 635CSi today in advance of its MoT tomorrow morning; I've recently replaced the exhaust, several bulbs, the brake accumulator, and some other bits, and today I had the 36 year old AC successfully re-charged... and then I went back in underneath the car to tighten the compress...

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

Haven't been out on the road as it was late but it sounds ok - a bit raspy I suppose but I'm not really raving about it. I bought it as a cost effective and easy to fit replacement exhaust system, not as a performance element, whether real or imagininary.

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

Fitted the Fritz Bitz exhaust system from the downpipes back. I can confirm that putting the system on takes approximately one fifth of the time it takes to get the old bastard off.

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

Took delivery of a Fritz Bitz exhaust system for my 635CSi; I've had the car over 20 years and put an almost new but secondhand system on it when I bought the car so I think I've had my moneys worth out of it. I just hope the rest of the car will pull itself through an MoT at the end of next month. ...

Re: What are these tubes?

Headlamp height adjustment tubes. They should be full of liqued but age embrittles them - I've never seen a working set.

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

After almost 25 years of E24 ownership I finally changed my first brake bomb, on my 635CSi. Pretty easy and straight forward in the end; I purchased a set of six sided flare spanners, and just took care to make sure all the unions threaded back together straight and true. After surveying to see if t...

Speedo sensor wiring goes down the inside of the rhd drivers sill under the carpet, under the rear right hand seat and out from under the right hand seat along with the fuel pump wiring.

Re: Window Drop Down on door opening

I suspect use the heated door lock switch to engage a pcb circuit or short time relay (circa 0.25 secs) to drop the window a fraction and then use a contact on the the interior light relay going off to engage a similar pcb/short term hold relay to push the window back up for just over that length of...

It would also be worth posting this in the 'Wanted' forum Section rather than 'Tech info'. Perhaps a Mod could move it?

Re: Late Highline Alpina front spoiler options

Original was not fibreglass. It was the same material as the BMW E24 spoilers, plastic injection moulded.

You could try Alpina for one, they sold them as aftermarket items for non-Alpina cars.

There is something odd going on with the capet under the pedals.... and the accelerator too, it seems to be flat to the floor.

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

Not so much done to my E24, as noticed my E24 doinf to itself.
