  1. I was referring to a Beemer, which usually has low ride height.
  2. Has anyone used these plug kits in a real situation?
  3. Thanks. I'm aware that the feed line connectors are brass, however the valve block orifice is plastic. If you overtighten them, it will just keep spinning. Torque is only 8NM.
  4. May be someone overtighten the air feed pipe to the solenoid valve block and it's leaking? Note, the connection (thread) are plastic on the valve block and easily damaged - use gas PTFE tape to stop leak.

  6. Don't break the connectors (nipples) on the pressure converters, use a sharp blade to split open the old vac tubes. The pressure converter (#1) near the bulk head is the most difficult to do in situ, so remove it from the bracket. The best way is to remove the upper nut but loosen and leave the bottom nut in place, this will allow the PC to slip upwards and will make reinstallation much easier. Note foam pad is attached to bracket with push clip and cable tied to PC. https://www.etkbmw.com/bmw/EN/search/selectCar/E61/Tou/BMW+535d/ECE/11_3791
  7. Check tie rod ball joint, but most likely the strut (shock) is not seated correctly when you replaced the upper control arm.
  8. Part number: 1165224762 between £25-£30. Try Cotswold http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/forum/98-cotswold-bmw/
  9. You need to find a way of opening the tailgate glass lid without breaking the glass so you can climb through. There is info on how-to but can't find it.
  10. I decided to change all the glow plugs and was getting fault in number 3 & 4. This time I decided to replace them with Bosch instead of Beru. I hope these last longer than the Beru as it's a PITA. I must have over torqued #2 which I had trouble removing despite coating with copper grease. This time I used a torque wrench. 2013 2017 I did poke around with a long round file to see if there was any carbon build up. Ideally, need a reamer to clean threads and remove any carbon to prevent the glow plugs (tips) from seizing. Nevertheless, the tips were ok. The head is coked with carbon .........................................on the upside, got to play around with the karcher
  11. Looks good - Folding mirrors, memory seats, pano roof, heated seats, bluetooth........ if you have full electric memory seats then the steering column is also electric. This is the case with mine.

  12. Is it burning oil that you need to top it up regularly?
  13. Don't confuse reliability issues with owner neglect. The 535d is reliable including the pre-LCi, however the ZF transmission is the weakest link. With any purchase, evidence of maintenance is paramount.
  14. It's called 'regulating arm' (#4) controls xenon vertical aim http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=NC92-EUR-07-2005-E60-BMW-535d&diagId=31_0656 Also, you have cover missing (tension strut, #22) which encloses the steering rack booth hence the cable ties.
  15. It would be impossible to gauge how long a used IBS would last and most likely would be an old version. New revision came into production in 2010 and most BMW sensors are made by Hella. You may be able to source it cheaply from a Hella distributor.
