  1. Smack the inside tyre with a rubber mallet whilst rotating the wheel. Don't piss the General off with a bad back.
  2. Sudden MPG drop.

    Once warmed up, it should stay within 89c-92c. Which thermostat brand did you purchase, Behr?
  3. E60 Timing Chain recalls

    Have a look and decide.... https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e60-520d-lim/repair-manuals/11-engine/11-31-camshaft/1VnYjhsElc
  4. High Pressure Fuel Pump

    Looks straight forward, tool is available from eBay Part 2
  5. C110 Scanner can't find PDC module

    I have tried version 4.5 and 4.6, both give blank screen when you upgrade the scanner. It seems that C110 is not supported anymore and is superseded by C110+ which covers 2 & 4 series. C110_BMW_CREATOR_V4.4_EN.rar
  6. Your Thoughts On ECU Map Repository

    Like using INPA, DIS and ISTA
  7. Voltage...

    Your problem is a weak battery, and disconnecting the IBS lead won't help since it does not know the status of charge of the battery. Depending upon the condition of the battery the charging voltage can vary from 15.0-15.5v for a weak battery and 14.2-14.8v for a healthy battery.
  8. Front strut top mounts

    Disconnect the anti-roll bar link, level sensor (if you have xenon lights), tension strut (twisty control arm) and tie rod. Knowing your luck, the tie-rod end lock nut will be rusted and PITA to get off. You will need to hold the shock piston (spindle) with molegrips to remove the top lock nut. The lock nut should be replaced (21mm or 22mm for aftermarket). Not very good video, however shows it's possible
  9. Engine stalling on boost

    Get the car scanned for fault codes.
  10. Coolant hose woes

    Go to Machine Mart and have a look at this kit https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/cht314-universal-o-ring-set/ You can get it cheaper from eBay, also https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/225-piece-nitrile-o-ring-assortment-metric/
  11. Look at the first image, gasket (#2) there are 4 torx bolts (T30 or T40?). Water Pump
  12. Two of the bolts must be cut to length since they don't go through the casting. Water pump is easy to remove and it's the best way. I know because I tried everything to get the stud out, nearly burned the car.
  13. M6 x 20mm (#8) Thermostat cooling system Probably need to remove the bolt which holds pipe #1 to give you some flexibility https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e60-530d-lim/repair-manuals/11-engine/11-53-thermostat-engine-proof-coolant-lines/Bnq1WbI
  14. what model is your car?
  15. 2.0 litre engine in a 7 series.
