Remove and install the front and rear windshield

I want to get my car painted, the paint is weathered so a new coat of paint will do him good. Does anyone have experience with both rear and front windshield removal? I would like to get it out during the spraying of the car. The chrome trim around the windows is in very good condition, so I don't r...

Re: Got gauges?!? Series 1 custom VDO gauge installation

It's a great book! I loved to read it.
I also have the "guide to European automotive electrical systems", also a great guide, I use it in combination with the Bentley Publishes E28 service manual, good combination.

Re: My aftermarket exhaust is too loud!

The Walker 13033 muffler I bought is for the 628. It did fit my 635 perfectly in terms of shape and the size of the tubes, except for the bracket, I think on the older models it was clamped around the exhaust. In my case, however, there was a bracket welded to the exhaust just above the end pieces. ...

Re: Smoke testing

I think I found it.
The blue tube attached to the bottom side of the manifold needs to be connected to a small brown tube that goes into the interior, to which I believe goes to an interior sensor.

Can someone confirm this?

Smoke testing

I did some smoke tests on my car to find vacuum leaks. Found one in the edge of the air check valve (part.no.1163170627), managed to seal it with some silicone sealant. I did find no other leaks but that could be due to the fact I don't quite know where to connect the smoke tester. Tried to connect ...

Re: engine cutting out when driving

Did all these issues start at the same time?
My first guess is that they are not related but that's just a guess.
I had a similar situation with a Peugeot once, the car stalled and was able to start again right after. Found out the fuse box was bad, it had a bad connection.

Re: 1989 e24 front spoiler.

To both questions, no. Not new, no replicas.
Your only chance is a used one which to be honest, are not coming up for sale often.
