  1. E39 M5 clutch slave cylinder query

    Haven't noticed mine creaking as much after the slave cylinder I must admit. I'll know more after some more cold starts over time and update. They're a pain aren't they! Can't think what it could be that makes the noise. Only thing that I could think was the fingers on the clutch pressure plate creaking. It's such a lot of work having the gearbox in and out we'll just have to live with it sadly does yours do it even when warm?
  2. E39 M5 clutch slave cylinder query

    Ended up replacing the slave cylinder, was much firmer than the tired old one for sure. To bleed I put the new cylinder on and gravity bled for a little while, then pumped the pedal to fill the cylinder while keeping an eye on the reservoir level. Once there was pressure, I kept the clutch pedal held all the way down with a breaker bar against the seat frame and cracked the bleeder on the slave. You could hear the clutch release and push the cylinder back as fluid flowed through. Do this a few times and the fluid ran nice and clear with no air bubbles. I still seem to have the click when cold unfortunately. Determined this must be the pressure plate springs or something when the engine is cold. Disappears when warm, I'll just live with it as the clutch is quite new!

    Thanks, have sent a PM
  5. Hi, Could you please quote me for an E39 M5 slave cylinder? Are all years the same part number for RHD? 21522282056 There's two diameters 22.2mm and 23.8mm (which is the correct one?) Thanks in advance
  6. I'm trying to source a strange clutch clicking sound when I press in the clutch pedal. It comes from the bell housing area only when the car has been left to cool down (it's not the pedal bushings). When warm it gradually goes away. I inspected the slave cylinder (which is probably original or at least quite old) and the rod has quite a bit of 'free play' when taken away from the gearbox. Anyone who's replaced their clutch cylinder is this rod usually loose? In essence I'm asking who else's rod is floppy
  7. I got a LASO water pump from C3BMW on their Ebay store and was very pleased. Good quality and working well so far, my original had failed by the bearing going, play on the water pump shaft holding the viscous fan on and leaking coolant from behind the waterpump pulley when run for a minute or two once pressure built up.
  8. M5 speaker query

    Ah great thanks for confirming. I'll go with a cheap as I can set of standard ones as they're only the rear deck, and as you say hardly top quality these days!
  9. M5 speaker query

    The subs work and are present, underneath the grills inside the cabin they're literally missing when removed. So all I have is front speakers/tweeters, rear door tweeters and parcel shelf subs. Would the more common rear deck speakers (65.13-8360778) still work OK?
  10. M5 speaker query

    Looks like I have the top hifi option, Nokia subs in the parcel shelf, part number as seen below Looks like the corresponding speaker part numbers should be 65138369067 and 65138369068? The only ones I can find on eBay and the like are 65.13-8360778
  11. M5 speaker query

    I'm not sure I've got the M-Audio option on my M5, but I have the non-nav DSP system and Nokia subs on the parcel shelf. There's woofers and tweeters in the front doors, tweeters on the rear doors and rear deck speakers. My rear deck woofers have been missing pretty much since I got the car. The connector is there on both sides too. What audio option is this likely to be? I understand there's top-hifi, m audio, hifi etc. Pretty confusing! Would I get away with just fitting some of the more common options items such as the hifi speakers 65138360788? Would they still work with the DSP amp? Can seem to find these fairly cheap just to restore sound in the back to complement the factory subs.
  12. Ah good point thanks! If so I can't really find the right part numbers so would all woofers be the right connector to plug straight in and get working? I understand the proper M Audio speakers have built in cross overs but they seem to be pretty rare and potentially expensive
  13. Any chance any of those cars have the Nokia sub/DSP sound system? After a couple of rear deck speakers if available. I think the right part number is 65138369067

    Great thanks very much! Couple of mine look a little old so I'll have a look for some generic copper crush washer in the right sizes.
