  2. i'll give it a go
  3. no, no luck, the air con thing didn't make any difference unfortunately, someone did mention chain tensioner??,
  4. it's a manual,
  5. i'd be very happy if it turned out too be something so simple, thanks, i'll give it a try
  6. hi all, i need to pick your brains yet again, i have a 2002 530 and over the weekend i noticed a quiet ish i'd say sort of clatter rather than a rattle, it seems to be coming from the drivers front corner, and seems to only be noticable when it's warm, the sound is like a quieter dual mass flywheel sound, but it's not that, any ideas??, cheers, a slightly panicking steve
  7. hi jimmy, sorry it took so long for me to have a look, would this be the plug you're talking about?, cheers, steve
  8. by the time i'm out of the gate it's absolutely fine, and it will be fine all day, unless it sits at work for the day, then it will generally do the same, it's bizzare
  9. thanks for all your replies, the belt doesn't seem to be slipping, oil level is good, i can't see any signs of leaks, to back iut of my space i need full l/h lock then straight onto r/h lock, it's usually sorted itself by then,
  10. hi all, just recently when i leave for work my power steering doesn't seem to have the "power" bit until i've had an arm workout getting out of my space, once it's kicked in it's fine, sometimes it does the same when i leave work or it might wait until the next morning, any ideas?, cheers, steve
  11. to be honest it isn't much use to me, but for a cloth trim it's not in bad shape, if anyone want's it for nout you'll have to come and take it out
  12. morning all, whilst mooching around my donor car this morning i noticed it has a locking folding split rear seat, i've never seen one before, is it unusual?, is it worth saving?, cheers, steve
  13. i was hoping for a simple display swap, but it doesn't sound that simple,
  14. hi everyone, my car a 2002 530 had a pretty knackered in dash display, the pixels are awfull, i've picked up a 99 523 to break for panels for mine and it has a perfect display, would it be a compatable swap over?, thanks, steve
