  1. lemforder rear upper control arms

    If it's the same part I'm thinking, the ball joint end is spherical shaped as it pushes into the carrier and the old arms are flat against the carrier.
  2. Wheeler Dealers Series 14

    I liked the show, just not the same without Ed and I didn't believe how the car was bought and sold.
  3. EIS Heater Motor

    Hi, Just wondering if anyone has fitted one and whether they had any issues? https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/heater-motor I would buy an original part but since it's made by Valeo, the fact that its failed prematurely doesn't give me much confidence in the OEM brand and especially after replacing numerous Valeo parts on different cars over the years. Cheers
  4. E39 Heater Blower Cover

    Would you be able to post it, if so how much please all in? Cheers
  5. E39 Heater Blower Cover

    Looking for a replacement plastic blower motor cover for my 2002 E39. I have ordered a new blower motor unit separately but annoyingly the cover has a massive gash.
  6. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Finished removing the blower motor, some significant damage to the plastic casing.
  7. Cluster pixel repair

    Hey all, I'm in the middle of replacing the blower motor and couldn't help notice some warranty stickers on the back of the cluster (see pic). I'm guessing there's been an issue with missing pixels in the past and the LCD has been replaced, plausible? Coincidentally it's just about the only common fault I've not had to tackle on the car. Cheers

    Removed the dashboard to tackle the noisy blower motor.
  9. E39 530D

    8 grand final bid, I guess we'll never know if it was genuine or not.

    Reserve still not met yet... 530D
  11. Suspension arms

    I removed the arms from the car, both are marked TRW. I also found the ECP receipt, £147 I paid Funnily enough, I had posted at the time I replaced them and someone said I couldn't go wrong with TRW ;p http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/topic/94947-failed-mot/#comment-1004419 I'll see this one through to conclusion with ECP and TRW, it's scandalous both ball joints have failed.
  12. Suspension arms

    I think the point here is TRW parts are expensive over the likes of Meyle / Febi, priced at the same level as Lemforder and therefore isn't a cheap fix for anything.
  13. Suspension arms

    TRW are meant to be on par with Lemforder are they not?
  14. Suspension arms

    *Nearside Rear Upper Suspension arm has excessive play in a ball joint (2.4.G.2)*
  15. Suspension arms

    IIRC They were purchased from ECP and came in a TRW box. I've e-mailed TRW to complain, I wonder if I'll get a response.
