    Hi Guys The top storage cover is not fully closing because some of the hood material does not fully detract into the storage area. Some of the material rests on the back behind the rear headrests and, consequently, the top cover does not fit snuggly down. Is there any adjustment that would...

    My driver side door has suddenly stopped closing correctly. It closes and locks but it's only half closed if that makes sense. It's like when you close a car door but don't close it hard enough. I suspect it is the exterior door handle because when I raise the exterior door handle it takes two...

    Hi I have a 520d touring 2012 model. The boot opens with the key but it won't close with the key or by pressing the button. I can hear a clicking somewhere near the battery when I press the button. Any ideas what the problem is and how to fix. I would really appreciate any advice.

    Hi Quick question, where would the allen key wrench thing be for my car? I took the centre piece out between the two rear seats and couldnt see it. As my car has the built in subwoofer would this allen key be in the same place? Any help appreciated:thumbsup

    Ever since the wife opened the boot while I was closing the roof, I have noticed it no longer closes fully on the inside. The outside looks like it does though ? On the inside, there is now a 1inch gap and I can see the mechanism for the roof operations and can clearly hear things from the...

    My window makes a scratching noise going up and once closed and doing the last slight raise it makes a straining noise. It bugs me but if it ain't actually broke should I leave it?

    It was fine but today it's not. It won't close so sits almost closed and flaps open when I go over a bump. The remote opening and the soft closing all do nothing now. Likewise the button in the car and the key lock button on the boot itself. Nothing works! It was ok on Saturday. on Sunday I...
