    Hi guys. Apologies that my first post is asking for help but the bracket attaching the tailgate and hinge to the roof has snapped on one side, obviously causing the whole tailgate to go lopsided.

    Alright guys, I am the E60 engine swap guy from BMW Land. Haven't really used the forums since it was very sadly taken down. My E60 lived on with its E90 330d lump for another 18 months or so and about 10k miles, when I sold it with a fresh MOT. I got £2500. Never did get rid of that vibration...

    Hi, This is my first post and I wanted to share a technique I discovered when my bonnet (hood) bowden cable broke. I was happily following the excellent advice from Xjeeper on the forums, when my cable snapped and got lost inside the pathway. So...after almost despairing, I bought a bicycle...

    Hi All, So I was rolling along at about 25 mph through the town yesterday evening when my car suddenly but very calmly cut out on me, like it had run out of fuel. It wouldn't start so the AA towed me home and the only code I had was no signal from the camshaft position sensor. I've had the car...

    Unfortunately the bonnet cable on my e36 318is has snapped! It snapped whilst opening (the bonnet opened) however I wasn't 100% sure it had, and stupidly I shut the bonnet!!

    I don't know where to begin really I was changing the rocker cover gasket and found a load of black goop, (congealed oil or instant gasket?) and after removing the hose from the cover it wasn't connected to anything.
