    Rust e39 no hope?

    £600??? I need to meet your bodywork guys....thats way more than £600 IMHO... i was quoted £700 just to sort rear arches! That thing needs serious work and best option would be strip it and scrap it.

    Cost to repair jacking points

    Ive just dropped my tank in preparation for repair. Im tight and feel that 1500 is too much bloody money to spend on a £1200 car. I'm doing the repairs myself!

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I don't think the passenger side is quite as bad, time will tell though! The pictures are of the driver's side... Taken with front facing camera Is there any other way to drive an E39?? Especially when you drive a Vauxhall Vivaro for work.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Mine looked ok, the inner lip was a bit crusty.....until I removed the plastic covers!! Haven't even looked at the passenger side yet. Looks just as bad, from what I can see. Just need to pluck up the courage to start attacking with a grinder!

    Coding new high obc clocks?

    From my little bit of experience with PA Soft all you will need to do is install the new clocks and change the mileage and then VIN in PA Soft. Get the mileage from PA Soft first, it will be in KM. Mileage checks are done every 100km so it should update eventually anyway. If the clocks have a higher mileage than the EWS and LCM they will update to the higher mileage. Not what you want. To change the mileage down i think you have to wipe/replace the EEPROM in the clocks, this is age dependent though as early clocks could be changed down (possibly)

    02 530d aircon compressor not spinning

    Could be faulty pressure switch? Is there power getting to the compressor clutch? Not very helpful I know....

    Caliper running against front disc...

    When one of my front wheel bearings was shot it caused the disc to rub the backing plate... Very loud it was too!!

    02 530d aircon compressor not spinning

    Did they pressure test the system before filling it? If it's got a leak and all the gas has gone the compressor won't engage due to low pressure.
