    Windscreen Side Trim clip Replacement

    Nah, people should take more care when removing bits from the car during paint correction work.
  3. The trims were not sitting flush to the A pillar so I decided to replace the clips. TIS is unhelpful..... 51 31 030Removing and installing or replacing left or right gutter strip along windscreen Unclip gutter strip (1) towards top. Important! Replace clips (2) after each removal. Note part number. Installation: Locks (3) of clips (2) must not be damaged. Gutter strip (1) must not be damaged, replace if necessary. Fortunately, I found an excellent Ytube video showing how to remove the trim without breaking the clips. From 8:12 - 10:05 Slide off the peg to remove clip.
  4. I've done the A&E visits in the early days. The problem is when the child is not normal and is dependant in all manner of care into adolescent and possibly into adulthood.
  5. No stamina, should have done this in my 20s.
  6. I can't wait for mines to grow up quickly.
  7. I tend to wait before moving when selecting reverse. The system is a bit slow and had a few near misses before realising.

    S62 Rebuild

    I knew what he was thinking when he first posted. Figure a way of getting the subframes in then it will be the real deal.

    I created a TIS guide when doing front & rear axle work on my E61. See page 17 5 Series E61 535d.pdf

    Newbie questions

    The deflation process never worked for me in DIS V57, but you can inflate them (Dotcom1970, please give me a break ). The process should be the same in ISTA/D control unit functions -> component activation: activate menu items ”Fill rear left/right air spring” once

    Swap it with middle sensor and make sure it's seated in the holder properly.
