Basics are: 1.Remove any remaining gas using R12 rig. 2.Remove the schrader valves inside original charging valves. 3.Fit new adaptors to original charging valves. (the lower one is very close to the washer bottle) 4.Re-charge with R134 and, ...

H/L Wipers/Washers

Hi Drew, The pump for the h/l washers is on the washer bottle.There should be two pumps and the one nearest the engine is for the h/ls. The power for it comes from the offside h/l motor when it moves from the parked position(that motor has four wires in the plug-the nearside motor only has three wir...

One Touch Windows

Have obtained a WC 1000 relay and unfortunately due to the circuit wiring
it will only operate one window.I'm going to try a modification to get it to
operate both front windows (not together obviously).
Will try to do a Tech. on it.

Paseenger mirror

Some early Uk 6's had non-power passenger mirrors fitted.The loom was there but no motor!!!BMW's idea of saving money.Easy way to check is take the mirror off (triangular bit of trim and three screws) and see if the mirror has wiring attached.

Clear lenses

I've got the chrome effect bulbs from BM Town and although they are marked at 21 watts they are not really bright enough in daylight.
How bright are the ones you've got,Joe.

Power mirrors

There is not a lot of difference between early and late mirrors.The later(E28 based) mirrors bolt straight on and the wiring is the same from what I remember.The motors are sealed units and to strip the mirror is a right P.I.T.A. The wiring is sealed into the body with very tough sealant and you nee...

Hi Dave,I do lots of miles in MILI and, depending on the weather,have to polish them about once a month in summer.Winter is more often due to salt etc.Hope to see you soon.Regds.

Most good engineering supply shops should sell copper drifts.An alloy one would do.It's only to stop the thread getting damaged.

Handbrake adjustment.

The cable adjusting nuts are right by the lever.Take the console surrounding the handbrake lever off and bingo there they are.

Refurbing wheels

There are only two parts to the wheel.The rim and the hub and they are bolted together with about 36 bolts (from memory).You need 12 point sockets to remove and a hammer and thin copper drift.I've got some spare nuts and bolts so will check socket sizes tomorrow.

You need to slacken the nuts on the cables and then check the adjusters inside the rear disc.To do this, remove one stud from each back wheel.Turn the wheel and using torch you can see the adjuster star wheel.Turn starwheel using thin screwdriver clockwise to expand,anticlock to retract until the sh...
