  1. Car crawling...

    normally with autos it will creep slightly in drive (well all mine have anyway) unless the idle is too low, if your idle is sitting high it may be that it’s just a bit more noticeable now
  2. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    only took him 3 hours and all done, ccv pipes were all broken and he previous owner must have removed and refitted the intake boot at some point but pushed the bottom edge of the boot into the maf housing, lumpy idle now sorted

  4. 000011: Left Rear Seat Belt Tensioners

    There is no pretensions in the rear.as you have a bst fault it may be that that's causing the code, look like you need to replace/repair the +terminal
  5. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Dropped the car off at the Indies to get the ccv and oil filter housing gasket replaced, done 2 myself on previous cars and couldn't be bothered this time round
  6. Strange fault code

    Yea I thought that,even checked realoem and it just shows the normal buckle and spring mount, Must be a ghost code or Carly’s gone daft
  7. Strange fault code

    Hi folks got a strange one here, Carly is showing a rear seat passenger left pretensioner fault, lifted the rear seat but there’s only the usual buckle and mount with the spring, is Carly throwing a wobbler or did e39s come with pretensioners for the back seats, it’s a late 200o facelift 530i

  10. E39 facelift headlight adjuster

    taking th3 lens off wasn’t too bad but the other light must have been replaced at some point with a later one so wouldn’t unglue so went through the back for that one and your right takes a lot of patience, nearly through the bloody thing through the kitchen window but got there in the end, all put back together and hey presto working self levellers just need to go find somewhere tomorrow to get the lights aligned as I’m sure their pointing nowhere near were their supposed too
  11. E39 facelift headlight adjuster

    Lens came up quite good after an hour of wet and dry and a bit of compound
  12. E39 facelift headlight adjuster

    started, went to screw fix and bought a heat gun 11.99 bargain for a 2000w one, made quick work of seperating the bits just got to wait for the postie to deliver the new adjusters, as you can see the old ones were tab past their best lol
  13. going to tackle my headlights over the weekend and they seriously need wet and dried and to also fix the broken adjusters, I have ordered replacement adjusters off flea bay so hopefully they will arrive Saturday post, as I understand it the facelift lights are sealed and 2 sections need to be separated (lens and body) to get access to the parts and I have read that sticking the lights in the oven can soften the seal which I don’t fancy doing and also the heat gun method which I don’t have, can I assume that temporarily knicking the wife’s hair dryer won’t do the job or has anyone on here had some success with one!!
  14. Hi looking for the up and down buttons for e39 heater panel mine are missing, did order a couple of eBay but talk about piss poor quality, they come with a long plastic triangle (red and blue) to insert into the buttons but don’t let any light through when lights are on and the triangle red and blue are about half the size of the original, and the lugs just snap jus5 by looking at them lol
