    Hi all, Dad's bought an ex-police 530D SE Touring, which is very nice but he's missing the loading bay cover. If anyone has one they don't need and they are either able to deliver to Spalding, or live a sensible distance away, or are able to post or send by courier (I'd obviously pay postage...

    Been trying to search, here and via Google. I have been working on my 523i engine for almost a year and getting close to putting it back in the car. But memory what it is these days, I can't fathom out where everything goes so am looking for diagrams of where cables run etc. Thanks

    Hello. I've searched and searched so apologies if this is already documented somewhere, but I can't find it. I need to remove the turbo and primary cat on my 320d. I know it's supposed to be restricted under there, but at the moment all I have is the oil sump plug access hole to reach through...

    Hi all, I noticed a weird clicking sound when shutting off my 330d a few days ago and it now seems to appear randomly when idling and driving. The noise and pattern (clicks > silence > clicks > silence...) seems to be the same whatever the engine speed and load, idle, fast idle, accelerating...

    Was investigating something else today and saw lots of small black pieces of plastic around the engine bay. Kinda like iron filings but plastic, mainly around the serpentine belt/EGR valve/alternator, i.e. passenger side of car. The aircon belt is not fitted as the radiator is knackered, it's...

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone can suggest what a new noise is i've started to hear. I've got an E60 530d Saloon, done about 110k. It's been stood for around a month and a bit hardly being used but went out and noticed a new noise. I've had it to the local mechanics and he's checked the engine...

    My 4.4 740 has an intermittent rattle noise from the drivers side front of the engine bay. I does not always appear when starting from cold and in fact can happen when the car is warm. Either revving the engine or driving the noise will slow diminish and then disappear. It sounds a bit like a...

    Yep, I made a terrible mistake. Came out of a parking space in BnQ, turned to early and CRUNCH, over the post... the side panel on the passenger side is crumpled. At first I though it was just the plastic side skirt that needed replacing, it was scratched and a little twisted (sorry, no...
