  1. Ooer that’s annoying! My metal ball appears to have popped out the plastic socket, for a temporary attempt does it just pop back in with force?
  2. So I've ordered the usual clips to repair a window that goes down wonky, pulled the doorcard off but they're actually fine. The problem I believe is the round nylon clip that actually holds the mech into the horizontal runner. To the bottom left of #15 here: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=HJ62-EUR-06-1994-E34-BMW-525i&diagId=51_0408 What is the method for fixing this one? It looks like the mech just pops into it, but is there a metal clip that holds it in? Both rear windows have the same symptoms so something is a bit weird.

    Thanks sir appreciate it! Mine definitely has the door bars as it's clearly visible on the outside now!

    E34 facelift or not?

    Drivers front door and a drivers wing. Trying to find in calypso red to keep the costs down. Missus only had the car 3 or so weeks before an uninsured driver decided to modify it in a carpark, sigh. Good info on the "facelift" stuff, hopefully if I pick a donor car with later style mirrors then I'll be all good then.

Cheers

    E34 driver's door and wing

    Front driver's door and wing in calypso red in good condition. It's a later spec door if it matters Cheers
  13. Yep easy enough done now. I tried to relieve pressure on the bleed nipple first. They came off really easy though
  14. From what I've read: 1) There's a bleed/drain on the control valve. I assume I can de-pressurise the system enough with this, clamp the hoses and remove the shocks 2) It is beneficial to leave the rear jacked up to allow the system to bleed properly afterwards, no manual intervention
  15. I don't. Only Haynes. Anywhere online I can rob that page from? In my eyes I just had to clamp the hose and carefully undo it! Assume that's asking for trouble
