  1. Guildo/doughnut

    Been through 3 Propshaft guilbo/doughnuts in just a few hundred miles.. initially the Propshaft centre bearing failed so both the centre bearing and guildo/doughnut where replaced. All was fine for a couple of hundred miles until the knocking noise returned and the doughnut failed again with fractures in the rubber also gearstick began shaking again. So again replaced guildo. Now it’s failed again... also all the new replacement guildo’s used where from euro car parts and slightly thinner compared to the original failed guildo? ... could it be that the standard guildo isn’t compatible with a dogleg gearbox as the replacements where thinner? any tips and advice would be highly appreciated. Thank. E28 m535i dogleg.

    Would anyone know where to buy x2 rubber gearbox mounts for a e28 m535i dogleg? Many thanks
  4. Knocking noise

    Thanks it's the same as the e28 so just ordered the bearing. Also would you know what gearbox mounts I need the ones connected to the gearbox bracket as I've discovered they are split? Thanks

    Thanks for the link. Just out of curiosity that bearing in the link is for 635csi so are there same as the one on a m535i ? Thanks
  6. Knocking noise

    Got the car on a ramp today and gave the prop shaft a wiggle it felt loose and floppy... it is the centre prop shaft bearing. Would anyone know where I would be able to buy a new replacement? Thanks
  7. Knocking noise

    Hi some advice and recommendations would be highly appreciated. Guys i have a BMW e28 m535i manual dogleg. A couple of days ago i began hearing a knocking noise from the osr passenger rear while accelerating from standstill first gear. It's horrible and loud. My gear stick shakes as well while accelerating. The knocking and shaking then goes away when car picks up speed and begins to smooth out. Thanks guys

    Anyone tried 18" alloys on a m535i... What's the best offsets and widths to go for fronts and rears... Also best suited tyres for 18" alloys.. I'm looking at the Bola tx09 18" alloys.. fronts 8j and rears 8.5j or maybe 9j? 5x120 et20... any experiences and advice would be highly appreciated.. Thanks

  13. temperature sensors

    Top man thanks for sharing the knowledge.. I grounded the wire and the temperature needle moved to full.. Now searching for the correct sensor.. I'll update as soon as the new sensor is fitted to the car... Thanks
  14. temperature sensors

    Thanks Taffy, now that I'm familiar with what those3 sensors do, I can order up the correct sensor... I've just looked around for a new sensor but looks like they have 2 pins on top compared to the old one which has a single pin on top.. The only single pin sensor I could find was for a m20 engine ... Anyone know where to buy the single pin sensor for a e28 m535i ? Thanks
  15. temperature sensors

    Guy's my cluster temperature gauge has stopped working.. could this be due to one of the 3 sensors failing? There's a blue sensor... A big brown sensor... And finally a single pin sensor... Honestly I'm kinda confused between these 3 sensors... Guy's what are the purpose of these sensors and which is which? Thanks
