Shop Recommendation - Columbus OH

Gentlemen, I am the owner of a 1972 3.0CS Euro and an 85' M635CSi. Previously, I took the cars to Tom Hatem Automotive in Columbus. Sadly, Mr. Hatem has passed away. I am looking for a shop in Columbus or the greater Columbus area that has some familiarity with the e9, E24 or vintage BMWs. If anyone...

Re: Cabin Constantly Hot, Need Help

Might be silly, but make sure the boot between the gear selector and the body is intact and well seated. I've had issues where the boot worked its way loose and engine/transmission air come rising into the cabin through the center console > floor vent area. It was very confusing!

Re: Feedback from those using a Miller MAF.

I bought the kit from VAC with the MAF and WAR chip for my M88. No complaints and feel like it's a little easier to live with than the barn door.

Passenger Door Lock Cam Repair - PART

Hey guys, The ear on the passenger door lock cam broke off in my car. I make a little model and was able to 3D print a replacement. Installed in the car and it works great. If anyone else needs one, you can get one printed from Thingverse. Here's a link: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4555433 Hop...

Re: Central Locking - Mystery Mix?

Well, after some additional investigation, it appears that the microswitch is not necessary for proper operation. I have connected everything to the driver door motor and the movement of the motor tab itself is enough to lock/unlock all the remaining passenger and trunk locks. I am unclear why the m...

Gentlemen, I've really been moving along on refurbishing my locks. I have a 1985 M635CSi.I have replaced the bumpers and have everything back together, but am getting some odd behavior with the driver side power switch. Passenger side and trunk work great. My problem, I believe, is the alignment of ...

Door Lock Repair Questions

Hey guys, I've embarked on a quest to replace the "door handle bumpers" and to refurbish my locks. I'm also attempting to repair my power locking system as well. I got into this weekend and had a couple of questions: 1. Is the driver lock mechanism substantially different than the passenger system? ...

Door Actuator Wiring

Guys, Does anyone have a part number or a connector specification for the door actuator? (or trunk, I guess?) Specifically, I'm looking for the connector to attach 51261372594 or 51261373183 to the wiring. I'd prefer to repair the existing but could splice in a used connector if someone has a source...

Door Actuator Connector

Hey guys,

Does anyone have a part number for the connector for the door actuators? I've got some crusty ones that I'd like to replace with freshies but it's not clear which one is which.

Does anyone have a P/N?

Thanks!
