    Rose Joint.

    It's a strange one, as the nearside is fine but the offside is visibly worn. There is very little movement and I hope to get away with it at MOT on Saturday. Bought one to replace it arriving Friday, but no time to get it fitted. If the examiner points it out to me I will show him the new one and hope for a bit of sympathy. but breath will definitely not be held!

    I had similar issues and it turned out to be one of coil packs that had rubber ‘boot’ missing at bottom. It let the coil pack move about giving similar symptoms to yours

    Ok, 3 years is long enough to wait for an answer, any takers ?
  9. Hi Ian So you have fixed one problem and now have another! When the AFM is disconnected it is running on a "limp" mode. When connected it sends a variable voltage by means of a potentiometer to the ECU. The fact that it does not idle suggests a fault in the AFM or possibly its wiring to the ECU. As you had the AFM apart I would revisit that or substitute a working one.
  10. I have managed to find affected location: it is where a roller canvas touches the roller housing lower edge. I bought Liqui Moly PTFE-PULVER-SPRAY, spray some between the canvas and housing edge, squeaks are gone

    I'm really surprised that although I've done a lot of work on the front suspension on my car, I've done nothing at all on the rear, and as far as I know it is all still original at 145k miles. I keep expecting at each service and MOT to be told that rose joints need replacing, or that the shock are leaking etc, but no advisories at all. I got the car at 104k miles so potentially there may have been some work before than, but I'm pretty sure not.

  19. Big step forward today. Removed all the intake gubbins and started again. I noticed no3 intake had some debris behind it when i removed the manifold. Also one of the injectors wasn't seating good enough. So with these issues sorted the car will start, run and idle fine. But only with the afm disconnected. Connect the afm and is instantly dies.... I have tested it with a 9v battery connected and it does give a variable voltage output with flap opening,. So it actually tests ok? at least it idles good now!

    What price for next service?

    according to the BMW value service guide a oil change and filter is about £260 but they have offered a half price mot. are the prices quoted on the BMW site inclusive of Vat it does not make it clear. i dont know why when they quote prices they dont always mention the VAT is extra. when i had a shop if i had quoted prices less VAT i would have had trading standards on my back.there service departments are not a trade service. tim

    What price for next service?

    I wouldn't go anywhere that didn't seem bothered, they will recommend the flush as the service advisers get a % of this usually as an easy up sell. My understanding is the price they have quoted you is cheaper than the BMW value price, or have I missed something?

    545i playing up !

    Wife has just come back in car to say the EML is back on with the car shaking again. So it looks like whatever the problem is causing a misfire on cylinder 1. There's also a problem with the ibs as well now. The battery voltage is 12.1-12.2v switched off. Switched on I get 14.2v to 14.5 but when I switch lights and heating on the revs rise 300rpm but the voltage doesn't go below 13.9v . Would this discount the alternator and the voltage regulator ?

    I don't know why they bother asking for a value because they will only try and pay out the minimum that they can get away with.
