    I've got a couple of these for use on the engine mounts I'm replacing for my E36 316i 1997. The ones I took off were just ordinary nuts. When I try to use these on the new engine mounts, they go in a certain amount and there is a lot of resistance after that. I believe you are supposed to carry...

    Went to drop the wife off last night and when reversing into my drive the front parking sensor, I assume the one next to the number plate just started beeping continuously even though there was nothing obstructing it.

    Hi, my car has developed a noise that is driving me up the bloody wall. It's an intermittent long beeping noise that sounds like it's coming from the dash board/instrument cluster area but it's really difficult to pin point . It's definitely not mechanically generated like brake squeal for...

    So the waterpump was replaced, and as it was being snugged up, I think the nuts were overtorqued. The top and bottom right nuts are on and not threaded. However, the top and bottom left nuts are threaded, they will turn clockwise or anti-clockwise indefinitely. All four nuts are on though. I've...

I just went out to take off my front left wheel as I wanted to replace the ABS speed sensor, and I've found that I just can't get the nuts off!

    Hello, I wondered if anyone could help. I recently had to replace the windscreen wiper linkage for my 1994 318i. It all went smoothly until I discovered that one of the large nuts that hold the linkage to the bodywork has fallen off and gone missing (part of the reason it needed replacing) The...
