    Rattling Door Glass

    Hi thanks for that as you say if the shut line is ok, which it is then then it does point to the rubber door seal ! i have seen on another forum someone had a similar problem and used that adhesive draught proof strip ! just pulling the rubber seal away and sticking a piece of draught behind it just to build it out ! it's a cheap and simple thing to try, before marching into the Stealers with my wallet open!! will try it over the weekend and report if successful or not as the case maybe. cheers

    Rattling Door Glass

    It's the glass that's rattling because when the glass is down I can't hear it ! the door is frameless, I was thinking that the door needs adjusting in to the frame to nip the glass tighter in to the rubber seal ! I presume you would have to move the door latch keep in ! Probably need tool to do it . any thoughts cheers

    Rattling Door Glass

    Hi I seem to have developed a rattle on my near side doors ! When hitting potholes. If I drive with the windows down it's not there! Any one else suffered from the similar rattling? Any advice greatly appreciated cheers
  4. Some weeks ago brake warning came on telling me new pads needed on the front ! Took it to my local guy who finished up putting pads on the rear ,front ones were fine, reset every thing off we go a couple of weeks later the warning came on again around same time as E G R warning came on So had them both reset off we go about week later E G R light came on thats being replaced Friday so not a concern but brake warning light is back on ! The guy ensured me there is plenty of meat on the front pads ! Any thoughts before I get them reset Friday!


    Hi Right Hand Goose Could have that one in plain English please! cheers


    Thanks for that guys I will get a new fitted! Merry xmas to every one and a happy new year !!!


    Hi it was turned off by an independent guy he reset and it's just come back on ! I've used him for some so just thought I would check. If it's not replaced soon will it do any damage?
  8. I have the 520 and it pulls my Elddis Crusader Shamal as if it wasn't there! As others have said rear airbags I've had replaced and ac problem but just stay away from the Stealers! The only negative I would say is it likes tyres so keep it tracked up well ! Having said that it's the best car I've ever had and I'm pushing 70 ! I look forward to driving it every day!
  9. The engine warning light has come up and have been told I need to replace the EGR VALVE and I've been quoted £245.00 total. Dose that seem about right,I can't do it myself! Any advice gratefully received cheers

    Anybody carry a spare wheel?

    I've been called lots of things worse than a Golfist so yes I am ! And as for buying a Jag I'm not sure about that , my GT sailed through M O T yesterday at 5 years old with 65 k miles on the clock! Barely started to get run in and the tester said to me it feels like a brand new car ! And he told me the car didn't register anything on the emissions test!! Not bad for a deeeezal !!!!!! now where did that white ball go !

    Anybody carry a spare wheel?

    Hi yes i carry a spare wheel kit complete with jack etc, when i I changed from run flats I stripped out all the support materials and storage holes and things to make a space for a spare wheel which fits fine I keep my jack and even a set of snow chains all stored in there,then I fitted a piece of mdf to sit on top and have a boot liner to to keep it in place to carry the important equipment! the golf trolly and clubs !! I bought the kit from Alloy Wheels Direct.net. BMW Emergency Wheel kit. aprox £312.00 back in 2014 job done!

  14. Hi hope anyone can help my F 07 seems to have lost some information on the control message showing the remaining range of miles on the clock it seems to have disappeared! from the dial. any info would be appreciated
  15. Would be good to know if there was any advice or anything I could do to my roof blind etc, to make sure I don't have any of the same expensive repair problems! I don't suppose there is anything in the serviceing that should have been carried out. any advice great fully received.
