Hi to everyone on this great forum...now this is where i get flamed...recently bought a 316i Compact 1996.....previous owner has run into the ground..petrol in oil, which i suspect is one of the injectors leaking.as one is making a loud tapping rather than ticking....back box looks like someone has got to it with a can opner.....windows didn`t work and nor did the mirrors.luckily I`ve managed to sort out them 2 very minor glitches but stumped with the injecters..got new ones but can`t seem to find a manual to describe how to get to them and replace..any pointers would be great....even better if it would be in idiots language as I`ve never owned a beemer...anyways.ramble over.
Geoff, it would be best to post your issue in the E36 section, that way more people will see your issue and respond
When you post your thread, please title it correctly as per the forum rules, e.g. 1996 E36 Compact 316i - Replacing injectors

Hello. New to this site and about-to-be new to BMW. I want to feel confident about getting my first car...
Want to 'move up' from my Golf V 1.6 FSI SE.
Looking at smaller engined 3 and 5 series diesels.
I shall get reading!
Welcome to the forum.....
Hi all.....after months of lurking and surfing, I finally decided to join. Actually had my car over 2 years now, a '97 E39 525tds (M51 engine). Engine run in nicely at 127,000 miles. When I bought it, I changed the old tired looking steel wheels for some 'proper' BMW 16" alloys - nothing startling, but greatly improved the look of the car. I also changed the headlights to Angel-Eyes, the old Hellas looking distingly cataract-ridden!
I'm very pleased with it, for its age it is beautifully smooth with quite enough power for me.
Most of my tinkerings have been with the headlights, hence my months of surfing. I'll put these together and, once I learn how and where to post correctly, I'll stick them on here. For instance, I've read lots about Depo AE headlight fitting, but how do you repair them if they go wrong? I've replaced a halo ring for a tenner and even made my own bulb retaining clips for next to nothing!
Looking forward to lots more reading, it's a great forum.
