    On all day long
  3. Insurance Company Total Loss My Car Value Dispute

    When my mercedes V-Class was written off i used autotrader and ebay (sold) adverts to show current replacement value, i had all this evidence ready when the assor came out and he had no problem with my research and value i was putting on my merc.
  4. 03 E39 525d Slow acceleration and lots of smoke

    What Clavurion said, i used a combo of 1/4" rachet with a short 10mm socket to hold my longer hex key, it is a faff but once you have done it for the 1st time its a doddle every time after.

    Job well done but i would have removed the turbo inlet pipe, only x2 hex key bolts and it just comes out and leaves so much more room to work.
  6. 530 strange clatter on tickover :(

    That sounds like a dry bearing/lose or rattling pully, remove the aux belt and spin each pully and check for noise and play

    Thats odd, dont know why a bmw specialist brakers would say my replacement was from a petrol when they look nothing alike. Unless he ment to say diesel e46 and blurted out petrol e46
  9. 03 E39 525d Slow acceleration and lots of smoke

    I got mine from quarry motors in sheffield, a bmw specialist brakers and they told me they are all the same and they took one from a petrol e46 for my m57 530d and when i got it home i compaired them and they were identical apart from the replacement had the solid hex nut and the part numbers were the same. I would think the v8's would be the same but can only go from my expreiance

    The older hollow hex caps dont need to be that tight for them to bust the hex bit off....esp with there age now....word of warning to all who have hollow hex nuts, replace with solid or at least have the replacememt ready when next oil filter is due.
  11. 03 E39 525d Slow acceleration and lots of smoke

    Quarry motors in sheffield will have 1, or from any e46, e39 thats being broken near to you, there all the same petrol and diesel but later models have a solid hex nut on the top to stop that from happening, i had the same issue on my diesel.
