    Hello, Please could you help me yesterday I replaced both the front brake pads and discs on my 2007 X3. Everything went ok until I went to reassemble the brake calliper to the mounting bracket (I presume this is not the correct phrase, but I mean the bracket onto which the calliper is fixed). I...

    Gents Going to replace my wishbones and mountings/bushes this weekend on my E46 318i registered 2000. When I look at TIS it informs me that if 66mm mountings are used a special washer S in the picture attached is required to stop the cruciform from rubbing the mounting. Is this washer...

    Upon removing my front seats yesterday in prep for fitting some aftermarket ones, it appears that although there's only one hole for the rear bolt to hold the rail in place on the stock seats, there's actually two studs on the front sill-side. My regular seats drop straight onto the outboard...

    Hi everyone I'm doing a manual gearbox swap on my 328i and in getting the automatic out a piece of the casting surrounding one of the mounting bolts has broken off. Is it worth trying to repair this or am I looking at swapping in a different engine? Any advice appreciated, thanks.

    Why Poly? Polyurethane bushings are stronger and last longer than standard rubber bushings. Most modern production vehicles are designed using rubber bushings which have a limited lifespan. This contributes to suspension failure due to vehicular weight and the inherent design of high-tech...

    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...

    I have just developed a leaky injector (No 3) and on closer inspection looks like one of the studs has snapped for mounting the injector (Possibly the flange). I can't seem to find any diagrams off BMW to see where these mounting studs are connected too ? I'm guessing it's going to be a swine of...

    Ok so my mounting plate that holds the handbrake shoes in place by pins had corroded and the pins pulled through. Resulting in a very noisy car. Took to one mechanic who quoted 6 hours Labour plus parts to strip it all. Couldn't afford this so went for the bodge option. Luckily my shoes were...

  17. BMW Engine Conversions
    Good Afternoon, I am looking for some advice please ? I have read several of the S62 into E34 conversions and they all make reference to how hard the electrics are to sort out, but with little reference to how the engine mounts. Are the mounting points in the same place for the M60/62 and S62...

    All I have a 333i E30 that has been stored off road for 6 years. Going over the car getting ready to get it back on the road.
