    Caliper running against front disc...

    That was one off the things I thought of too. Took the disc off and cleaned it all up just in case but that made no difference.

    Could be...i'll measure it later to see if the disc has any movement...

    Caliper running against front disc...

    Thanks for reply but it's a facelift 530d so it's on the right discs. The only thing I can think off caliper or guide pins worn.

    Caliper running against front disc...

    Can't see why they would be... brembo discs that have been on there for about a year. So 20k on them. All off sudden they started rubbing. They are original calipers with 230 thousand miles on them but rebuilt with new pistons, seals and braided brakes lines about a year and a half ago...

    Caliper running against front disc...

    Cheers for the response but no it's not binding. The caliper is actualy able to run against the disc. There is groove worn into the caliper. I've stripped cleaned and rebuilt it. But once you brake a few times. The caliper is able to move and run against the disc. It sounded like a worn pad at first. Once the caliper was off you can see what was happening. I see if I get a picture tomorrow. So I've ordered a new caliper and guide pins. Just wanted to see if anyone has any idea of something I might be missing.
  6. Evening e39 heads, my front drivers caliper us running against the disc. I've stripped it and put it back together. Unfortunately it's still able to touch the disc. The only thing I can think off the caliper itself is worn or the guide pins are worn and allowing too much play. I've order a new caliper and guide pins. Anyone got any other ideas...

    Some Japanese Provenance!

    Yip...i had a jap import Subaru legacy with nice red flare... zero rust on it...any no sealing underneath. Had to wax oil it as soon as I got it and fit a fog lamp. Had an sti 10 years younger at the same time and it had loads of rust. God damn road salt....

    Lowering Advice for summer time

    Don't go down the cheap rollover route. I fitted jom's to mine. Hated them and took them back off and fitted standard stuff back on. Cheap coilovers do not have rebound adjustment on them. So unless you run them really low the ride is shocking. For me it destroyed the ride. If was to do it again I'd go lowering springs or decent coil overs with full adjustment.

    Best and Worst thing about an E39

    Love my 530d power comfort ... Only 2 downsides the big one rust. Minor one is the cupholder. My car is mechanically spot in but is rusting badly now. Spoiling a great car.

    Rock solid front seats

    Had the same problem in my se. Got a full sport interior for £120 from a breaker. The sport seats are definitely more comfortable for me.

    INPA can't connect to all modules on the car

    I got cables from cable shack on here. Works 100% and reads all modules. Plus Jimmy does excellent backup if you get stuck.

    Another gremlin - engine power loss E39 525d

    Yeah fortunately it's an easy job....just as you said....let us know how you get on after changing the pump.

    To be honest I'd go for a good brand for the pump. I put an eBay pump on mine. Lasted two months and then left me stopped at the side of the road. Had to get aa out. Got a pieburg pump and had no issues since. It was much quieter than ebay pump as well.

    Or wrecked a fuel pump running it low. But a fuel filter costs alot less than a pump. So if it was me I'd change the filter and go from there.

    That's really low for a supply pressure. You either have a fuel pump problem, blocked fuel filter or too much back flow into the tank.
