  1. Hi. Can I get a price for a set of 2008 520d Msport front springs please. One of mine has just sheared and gone through my tyre! My Reg is YR58XHT. Many thanks. Simon Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  2. Hi all. My I drive is saying my front pads need changing. I don't want to skimp and get the cheapest (for obvious reasons) but at the same time I don't have a lot of money this month and am trying to save. What front pads does everyone recommend and how much will I be looking at. I am a competent mechanic and I asume it's an easy job to change? Any input appreciated.

  3. As long as ignition isn't on or has been turned on just reconnect connection and you will be fine. If you have turned ignition on with wire disconnect you will now have a fault code you will need clearing. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  4. Hi I am about to go away for 10 weeks and not sure how to leave my 520. In the past I have always left my older cars in gear with the handbrake off and a brick behind the wheels and disconnected the battery. But not sure if it's wise to disconnect the battery on the bmw for this long due to all the computers and electronics. This was never an issue with my older focus or saab. Any advice much appreciated. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk

  7. I cut off my duff flexie with an angle grinder and put on a clamp on one for £40. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk

  9. My wiper arm has just come off! It looks like there should be a cir-clip holding the arm pivot point to the wiper mechanism. Can you buy these to fit the arm back on? If so can anyone point me in the direction because I can't find them. Many thanks. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  10. Hi. My car has thrown up 2 dpf codes and a high back presure code. When driving I have no power. Under light acceleration it still pulls but no turbo is there. Under hard acceleration it just flats out doesn't gain any speed. I'm assuming the dpf is that clogged it's causing the back presure. In doing this can it just vent off the turbo? I want to remove the dpf and get it cleaned. Has anyone had any experience in removing them? Does the steering colum need moving on a 520? Many thanks. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk

  14. It's item 11 though. Where the sensor screws in. its just a flapper valve now that swings open under pressure. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  15. Hi all. Have been thinking my car has been down on power recently but just put it down to being use to the car. But then today felt like I lost the whole turbo and had no power. Had no odd noises so checked all pipework and found the intercooler pipe from the egr to intercooler had a leak. The port that holds a sensor towards the top of the pipe is now a massive flap that just releases all the pressure now. Going to try and superglue it up tomorrow as a short fix. Any one have any idea of how much a new pipe would be? New or 2nd hand. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
