    Hi all. So my e60 hand brake barely works. I tired the reversing while applying thing and it worked, well for 5 mins and when I tried again nothing. Could it be the screw under the actual lever or else where. My last car has an electric one which was fine so never really had an issue...

    Silly question, how are the circular plastic clips that hold the screen wash tube to the car close to the headlamp and on the bonnet removed? It seems easy enough to remove the bonnet, but two plastic retaining clips holding the washer tube are being difficult. It would be better to save and...

    Hi All, I am the happy owner of a reasonably recently acquired E39 530D Touring after the injection pump of my trusty E34 525TDS sprung a leak (but that is for another thread). I love it, as it is much more sophisticated but a little less involved to drive than the E34. However, today a new...

    New member here, I've a problem with my e90, my key fob isn't clasped by the reader so easily falls out while driving, not a massive problem, but annoying.
