    Hi All, I have just notice that my fuel cap is not locking. Read that a relay can some times be the issue K121 - any ideas where i would locate this? And if there might be another possible reason, the bolt just not drawing across Thanks Mark

    Both my headlamp bulbs blew on my E34 a couple of days ago and I've only just got around to changing them. However, the insulation around the wires inside the caps are perished and needs replacing. What gauge of wire / current rating wire should I use or is it easier to just replace the caps? Is...

    Hi all, can someone tell me what wrench I need for this and also if you know where to obtain one. My local spares distributor didn't seem to know or have one in stock and I don't think Halfords will have one? I have tried the search function but can't see the wood for the trees. Thanks, deem

    Hi, I fitted a Nissens 60623A radiator to my 328i Auto Coupe, and the expansion cap screws in but doesn't seem to make a seal. I don't believe it's cross-threaded, but it hisses when I squeeze the top hose. Surely it's supposed to be airtight? I've tightened it as much as I dare, and it was...

    The tether/strap on my fuel cap recently broke/perished so here's what I did to fix it. I know that you can place the cap in the hole in the fuel flap hinge whilst fuelling but just in case I fixed it anyway. 1. Cut off broken strap very near the grommet in the flap hinge. 2. Drill out a...

    I noticed yesterday that i had lost most of the power in my windscreen washer jets. After looking under the bonnet and testing it appears that the water is shooting straight out of the washer pipe on the near side. Looks as though there should be some form of cap on the end of the pipe, as it is...

    Hi all. Only had my BMW for about 8 weeks and regularly check the oil about twice a week. Habit from previously owning an Alfa. Usually I find so white/cream stuff right at the end of my dipstick but really it's hardly noticeable and really a very small amount. I am aware this can be...

    Hi all Just done an oil change BUT didn't have the tool to take the oil filter cap off (used a mates last time but he's away and I forgot to get it off him. Which is annoying). Probably about time I got my own, but looking on eBay, there's a few different ones ranging from 74-86mm. Can...
