    Hi there!
    I'm very new to this but would like to say what a valuable site this is as its probably just saved me between 8-10K!!

    I used this site to research the swirl flap issue on the diesel engines and as a result had mine removed just in the nick of time!! i have also come across another very important find with water drainage on the E60 models and feel the need to share this with you guys in the hope i can save somebody a lot of money.

    I shall be putting pictures on concerning the swirl flap and water drain issues over the next few days once i have found how to do it, but in the meantime please contact me to discuss if you have any questions. I also have a great contact to do the swirl flaps for you at a very reasonable cost in the North Wales area if yours need doing.

    Please bare with me as i try to upload the pics etc.

    thanks all
    Gary

    Hi,

    I think i have just uploaded the pics but cant see where they have gone? these are the pics of the swirls flaps i had taken out yesterday and the water sat inside the well in the engine bay. Well worth taking a look in there to see if you have any water lying as it is also soaking the main wiring loom to the cars ECU!!!!

    I hope i done this right?

    welcome mate, it may be worth creating a new thread with title so that anybody experiencing these issues will be able to find the info quickly. It wont get as many views here as it's in the intro's section.
