    Hi all, I've spotted a small screw in the tyre which I have successfully unscrewed and done a soap and water test and there is no leak, should I be worried and get it repaired or ignore if there is no leak, tyre still have 4mm of rubber left. Thanks Sal Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    So in the process of draining my coolant I removed the radiator adjustment screw, the bit that the radiator drain plug screws into. It looks like it needs replacing once it's been removed however I've run into a strange problem. The one I took out of my E46 330i looks like one from a later BMW...

    Chaps Reverting back to the original spec radio head unit. Managed to buy a CD43 from eBay. It has not got the little plastic rectangular caps that cover the two hex head screws. I expect they are rarer than unicorn horns made of rocking horse poo and hens teeth and reinforced with...

    Got a bulb out in my E90's nearside headlamp. They're Valeo ones,I've found the bulbholder in question which is held by two small torx headed screws. Just wondering if anyone knows what size torx bit is needed? As I say,it's nearside so it needs to be a short length bit(allen key stylee...

    As the title suggests, the screw that you screw up to hold in the side indicators has come loose (no longer functions), which effectively now means I can no longer hold my indicators in place. I think a piece of plastic has snapped off my headlights. Yes that's both slides. :frown Anyone have...

    Hi guys, Hope this is not a silly question. While removing the microfilter housing of my E46 to troubleshoot the alarm siren located behind it yesterday, I think I had accidentally dropped one of the housing mounting screws into the void just in front of the firewall. Will any harm come to the...

    So i'v picked up a screw in my rear tyre... ...and its causing pressure loss at a daily rate (ie not instantly but its not lasting the week) I know regular tyres can be repaired easily in the centre of tread, whereas as RFT's can be problematic to repair meaning most places would rather turn...

    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...

    So as the title suggests, I have tried to adjust the the door handle screw (the one hidden behind a grommet on the inside of the door) to make it less clunky to open - its very difficult to open the door, and not smooth as it should be. However, the screw that is hidden behind a black grommet...
