    What have you done on your E34 Today

    dropped the clutch in my TDS for the first time in 60k miles felt a bit weird, it fires up faaaaar easier now, that torque converter weighed a bloody ton, had to fit a new clutch slave and I stuck new seals in the master whilst I had it all apart, time to tidy it all up, make a clutch reservoir bracket, sort some rust on the sills, find some headliners or re-trim mine.

    new box is in, all bolted up lovely once I got the friction plate lined up better! swapped the front half of the prop as my manual propshaft's rear half was worse for wear having sat for 4-5 years mostly outside, just need to get it to bleed up which the used parts seem reluctant to do so.

    removed the dead box outside on axle stands, not a bad job really, starter bolts were fiddly as they were not oem and awkward to get tools at. these things are so much heavier than the zf manual box!

    auto to manual wiring in 93 tds

    got those bits with the pedal box just wondered if the cc would work with the auto shifter not giving an in gear signal?

    auto to manual wiring in 93 tds

    Im part way there! found I was mistaken with the relay, should have listened more closely as I heard a relay click when I unplugged the shifter with the ignition on, swapped said relay for the jumper I found in the fusebox and it cranked over. i guess there is still some wiring to look at to ensure the cruise control works?
  11. Hi guys, I have started finally on swapping my dead auto box for a manual, struggling to find what needs doing so the car will start and the CC to work once the auto shifter is unplugged. being a TDS seems to give a few issues as the P-N position yellow relay thing with a stripe is not present and already has a simple jumper fitted, it is pre-EWS I believe, though when locked the car will not start so there is some kind of immobiliser present in the wiring. pictured are the plugs in the gearahifter area, I have the reverse light plugged in and also the clutch switch.

    got the brake bar refitted and reconnected the wiring, found the clutch switch wire, also found the reverse light switch, removed the auto shifter, thats about as far as I have figured, need to find info on the wiring!

    got a surprise after getting the Insurance renewal through for the saab I have been using given the auto in the e34 died, so I made a start on manual swapping, I've only had the parts since 2013 so far got the pedal box swapped, just need to re-attach the brake rod and all the wiring plugs and trim.

    moved it last week and hunted for the manual bits, fired straight up after being sat for 3 months, hadn't even disconnected the battery and not a single stumble, which was very annoying as it used to refuse to start without a load of cranking last year if I left it more than a day, so whatever I replaced in all that time did fix it.

    E34 Front Strut / Suspension Shopping List

    dont forget your local GMF, they do decent branded stuff like FAG SKF etc at decent prices, used to be down in Quedgeley I think but now on eastern business park behind screwfix, in the past they were big on motaquip which was PSA's own factor type brand, often enough oem supply stuff in different boxes I found. I would second the votes for a bilstein and eibach combo, my experience of spax has always been from severely overdamped crashy ride, similar to off the shelf Gaz, bilstein on the other hand has been great.
