    Folding mirror owners

    Yes, you need the driver's side switch pack with the folding button near the mirror adjustment. And you also need the passenger door module for folding mirrors, I believe you can use one from an E38 also.

    They don't fold automatically as standard, you can buy modules that you wire in to fold them automatically. I know the modlight unit can do that as well as a lot of other things.

    540i Touring hub swap

    I had the same issue. Ended up cutting the bolt through the slit, and got another from the dealers the next day. Even that was a little tricky to get in.

    Rear wiper motor repair?

    If 7 wiper motors do not work, it'll be a problem on the car side of things. The chance of all 7 being faulty is near impossible

    540i heater valve-repair?

    You could try flushing the heater pipes
  6. It's an interesting way around it, when I did it, I followed a different guide in which the guy modified the E38 armrest to fit onto the E39 frame. This meant that there was no rise in height and functioned as a normal E39 armrest would. All that I needed was a Dremel, it took one evening and a few adjustments after, but I was happy with the outcome. The only issue that with a manual, the dual compartment armrests are not the best because your elbow will always be in the centre tray.

    E39 Touch Screen Head Units

    If you could post back with any details you find, that would be perfect, I have my own 7018dab which still needs to be fitted

    E39 Touch Screen Head Units

    In regards to the fascia that Chris has, it resembles the one for the E53 X5, if you do search on Google, you'll see the flat fascias and how they don't fit the curve of the dash.

    It's a Kenwood DMX7018DAB. The newer version of the 7017 with touch controls

    Strange noise in the engine bay

    You could try removing the inlet pipe into the fuel filter and place it in a bottle, to get fuel into the line. As I said before, it happened with mine but I don't know what the guys did to get it started.

    Testing rear wiper motor outside of the car

    No I haven't tested it myself, I'm just telling you how it should work. You give it power and ground, and the switch should turn the motor on.

    According to the table, on the 3 pin connector Pin 1 is ground Pin 2 is power On the 6 pin Pin 1 and 2 are the signal wires, try one and then the other.
