Some dude named carandtruckmanuals is parting out a shark

He doesn't have a specific listing only that it is a 1983 633CSI. So if you search on his ebay name you may find the listing which was for a turn signal flasher relay.

Chris,
Thanks for the pic. Found the flasher on the right side of the column as the left side had the silver horn relay. Now I'm off to find that $5.95 Meyle flasher.
Cheers!

Does the rear seat pop out as a unit or are there separate units?

Do I need to remove the seats to get to the top of the shock towers for a shock replacement. If I don't is it just as easy to do a shock replacement?

I've got inop turn signals and emergency flasher. They light up but don't flash..(vin_6997510) 1984 633. If my relay/flasher is under the kick panel or steering column (per Chris above) how do I get access to that area. Do I drop the knee panel- (I see screws here) or the steering column (no screws)...

Went to the DMV for new plates. Almost legal but for a NY safety inspection. Still have to address the leaking seal on the new water pump. Props to Bavauto for fast shipping a new one under warranty. That's the next job for Garage Queen.

Great Looking Car! What materials did you use for rustproofing and undercoating? If there is a UK-only product that cannot be shipped to the US, I'll be in London next week so point me to a supplier, too. I've seen some Rustoleum commercial epoxy-mastic materials but haven't tried any yet. Regards, ...

Ralph, That's more "removal" than I want to undertake. BTW, it is a 4HP22. The black label said that along with BMW P/N 10430101126 and ZF p/n 117844 VIN is 6997510 to decode the build date which was 9/84 (per realoem). The PO was not hands on. Strictly a "dealer only" service customer so I'm sure t...

4 HP 22 Output Shaft Seal - Need Advice

Guys, After an underbody inspection this weekend of the Garage Queen, I saw some congealed goo around the rear trans support so I am guessing that the output shaft seal ought to be replaced. Since the car hasn't been a DD for years, I'm not surprised at the congealed condition. I'm looking for "how ...

My experience as a former drag racer is that the (aside from the gunk you've got) the roughness aids low velocity air flow and mixing in a carbureted and injected engine. High velocity likes smooth surfaces for max flow.
Just my opinion

I'm looking for new front and rear floor mats in Beige (the body is Bronzit) and the carpeting is beige. Hoping to get a "BMW" logo (not the roundel) and thicker padding under the accelerator/brake pedals. The last set I bought looked a bit greenish and now are too dirty to resuscitate. I've found t...
