    electric windows and mirrors

    Sorted Multipin connector S500 under the speaker by the accelerator pedal was partially undone. Reconnected and we're back!!

    electric windows and mirrors

    Yeah, checked that. The windows work fine when the door's open. But ignition on, doors shut, they don't work.......

    Yeah I found the relay. I can hear it clicking when I push the door switch. I swapped it for a new one but didn't solve the problem.... I've never heard it called that before. Let's start a club for like minded people, CSEGMClub

    electric windows and mirrors

    Because my 525e is so reliable and rarely goes wrong, I hardly ever feel the need to visit bmw5 . Any way now it's broke The electric windows don't work and I cannot adjust the mirrors. Having them pack up at the same time makes me think the fault is somehow connected. They share a fuse (No6) but that's ok I've had them working momentarily and also the windows work perfectly as long as a door is open (although at speed, this can be dangerous) Any ideas??

    525e loud tapping no matter where tappets set?

    Here's a youtube vid of my 525e from 5 years ago http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krNxZwxDmz8 It's still the same now. I've given up trying to sort it

    1986 525e - Requires auto gearbox

    I had this with my gearbox in 2006. I got a replacement clutch pack from Jpat in Bristol for £62. I found all the info online and repaired it myself. Was a bit daunting but I figured I'd give it a go and it's still running today.

    525e drivers - what mpg do you really get?

    I never work out mpg figures but my 525e gets about 80 to 100 extra miles from a tank compared to the M535i I recently sold.
