    Hi Guys A little advice needed if you please. I swapped out my 520d F10 FRONT brake pads and discs (to ATE discs & EBC Yellowstuff pads) and all went pretty well. Back breaking stuff! :eek Only issue was the offside disc retaining screw just did not want to come out! We fought for over an hour...

    Hi guys I managed to drop the main headlight h7 bulb retaining clip down in the bumper area and can't see it or have any easy way of retrieving it so now I'm stuck with a loose light bulb. I don't think bmw sell these clips separately and eBay don't seem to have the correct type. If anyone...

  6. BMW Guides and How To's
    I started doing my rear brakes / discs and after I had them done I thought... No problem front ones next! After five minutes I had the calipers off and thought "this is easier than the back" and that's when I screwed up. I started to attempt undoing the retaining screw and thought "um that's a...
  7. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    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, I am new to the world of BMW and so just wanted some clarification on a few issues associated with the stere on my E92 335D The OEM system is the Professional system and so non i-Drive. I have replaced this with an Alpine CDE-113BT that I already had from a previous vehicle. Once fitted...
