    Wheel arch gap - missing trim?

    Nr.30 not connected correctly. The screws and connecting parts corrode causing this. CLICK

    Bmw e39 530i thrust arm replacement questions?

    Another method is to simply "tighten" the wheel bolt and see how much longitudinal play the wheel/hub has. Of course you have to have some clue what is normal.

    1999 535i SE - Single or Dual Stage Airbag

    The screws are on the rear side of steering wheel. No actual need disconnecting battery if you just want to check things.

    They look the same. Just unscrew torx screws and check if it has one or two connectors for airbag.

    A.C / Fan issue. 2002 e39 525d

    Yes. You can activate it from DDE4 Activation menu.

    Improve Corner Stability

    Yes but these have been done.

    Improve Corner Stability

    Of course everything can be done but this would be quite epic job and costly. Dynamic Drive and sport (not M-sport!) springs and dampers if by far the best combo I've driven any E60.

    Improve Corner Stability

    Or retrofit Dynamic Drive.

    Suspension overhaul / eBay kits

    Ate brake hoses should be OEM quality.
  10. That separate DPF is on M57N engine, 530d -> 9/2005. The newer M57N2 have DPF and cat in the same package right after turbo.

    I would still say that majority of its life the car will just stand without load. So I've always done the job without additional load, just the vehicles own weight on the hub.

    How do I remove HVAC connector?

    This connector can sometimes be very tight. I've used pliers for removal.

    white smoke from engine bay???

    Have you checked the washer nozzles under the hood lining. Sometimes the nozzle heating shorts and have even caused fire on the lining.

    Usually these lock nuts are compressed nuts, not nylocks.

    530d manually turn engine to fit belt

    You can turn if on one of those torx bolts.
