  1. Just to show I did take some notice of your suggestions I now have a soldering 'station' I think my soldering technique is improving as well: The funky arms have a magnetic base so I can detach them from the wooden base and stick on the metal of the car which is actually very handy.

  3. Not as close but a terrific mechanic, Lee Shannon in Bentley near Guildford. Lee did the timing chain guides in my M62 and I was very pleased with his work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. One of the more pointless jobs.......cleaned the HVAC fan, was absolutely covered in dust but doubt it will make any difference! Why do the images keep rotating from how they've been saved?
  5. I thought I'd read about every E39 'fault' going but never heard of this one before! BTW, mine click in place so maybe not that common a problem. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks, I'll call to order and will need some of these as well: Expanding rivet 51478166992
  7. Thanks, can I have price per item as the adapter plate is the important bit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hi, I'm looking for the console surround - part 4 (needs to be in excellent condition with no broken tabs) and accelerator pedal bracket (drive by wire type) Needed quite urgently, cheers Barry.
  9. Hi, Can I have a quote for the following please: Adapter plate, accelerator pedal module 35426772702 Instruments combination covering 51458186936 thanks Barry
  10. Thanks chaps, I actually needed to get the wiring into the each front wheel well and found the route used for the side repeater wiring was ideal. Still took some effort to get the plug through the grommets but have managed it [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. OK, so maybe someone has managed to feed a wire through this grommet into the ebox under the cabin filter in the engine bay? What's the chance of forcing this connector through there? I'm guessing it's a no so suppose I'll have to cut the cable and solder it back in the engine bay unless there's another route I can use? Any advice appreciated as I think I'm getting in a bit deep!
  12. I think you can see the TPMS battery status with INPA?
  13. Cheers, ordered over the phone minus PN. 51168174621
  14. I did some background work when we had to replace the battery in our 2009 120d and managed to code it in DIS but it wasn't particularly intuitive. I did feel a sense of achievement as it wasn't posted anywhere specifically for the E87. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I'm planning to install RDC and the cables still have plugs on so I'm wondering how easy these are gonna be to thread from the dash through the firewall. I've seen where the cabling goes from passenger and driver side into the engine bay but there doesn't seem to be much space to force a plug through......any tips? TIA
