    E32 750i misfire, new dizzy' and rotor's

    So... I had a intermittent misfire when I got it, no big deal... Then it got more often... And had a smell eggy... So I got a straight thru exhaust thinking it was collapsed cats, it wasn't the case.. So tested the coil packs and the resistance is as it should and works as should.. Checked dizzy and they where well worn as well as rotor's so I replaced them and it ran a dream! Smooth as silk! Took it round the block and it was brilliant... For maybe a mile.... Then it came back So double checked the rotor's and dizzy and all as new and fitted properly. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? It's driving me insane now... I think it's ht leads as I had to move them all and mess about and re fit them so I wonder if there's a couple of dodgy leads? Not sure where else to check? Hope someone can help Thanks Niall Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    E39 brake pedal sinking

    Turns out it's the brake pipes that run over the fuel tank. Surely should have been picked up on the MOT tho

    E39 brake pedal sinking

    As above this time it's my car a e39 sport. Luckily first problem with the car I have had after nearly 3 years. So used the car yesterday and was fine all except the brake pedal felt a little bit like it was rubbing on something while been depressed not when applied tho only during the pedals movement Anyway today I set off to work via the petrol station pull in and go to brake slightly to turn in then slow down for pumps however i ended up entering the garage at 30 and carrying on going and nearly rear ending the poor girl filling her vw polo. The brake pedal still feels like it's rubbing on depression and it goes very nearly to the carpet.... Brakes still work well just only when fully depressed

    E39 rear breaks rubbing

    E39 rear breaks rubbing

    It's not to bad and I'm assuming it's just a spring inside the drum. But any other suggestions? My rear breaks are rubbing and catching. If I pull the hand break while moving just up and down a bit it changes the tone of the noise and sometimes gets rid of it for a while. This is what lead me to assume it's just a release spring of some kind.

    E39 touring rear sus airbag securing bolt

    Thanks droverunner but I have took it to a garage now as the silly plastic squeeze retainer thing on the top was snapped when I got there so it need to go to a garage. Nightmare haha

    E39 touring rear sus airbag securing bolt

    I couldn't see a locating peg. I managed to hold it from spinning but it didn't loosen even after a full rotation. Feels like I'm just over tightening it
  14. Is this a backwards thread does anyone know? I have managed to turn it anti clock wise but it's very stiff and seems to be tightening. Also having to hold the airbag in place to stop it from spinning
