    So e39 has taken a swipe.

    Witnesses? Dash cam or cctv footage? Worth a call to 101. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yep. Jack it up, take a look. If it is indeed the hub, the 16mm bolt (depending on the age of the car) is a pain in the ass to get out. Fingers crossed it's just a control arm [emoji1696] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I slid on ice and clipped the kerb, and the bottom of the hub cracked. Maybe years of driving have deteriorated the structure of it? I've found that they're the weakest part of the suspension more than once. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The hub is made of tissue paper, so that and the control arm or Sway bar. Oh and the wheel itself too most likely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. That's understandable. If it changes, let me know. Most likely I'll get a set of grey ones and have them dyed to match. Might be worth dropping [mention=28731]Sandip[/mention] a PM re gold membership Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I've got a touring aubergine interior, heated & electric. I need matching door cards. Only ever seen one for sale, and I bought it. Been trying to sell it but doesn't seem very popular. If you want to sell me the door cards to complete my set, that would be helpful. NF aka Deepan Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    540i Touring hub swap

    I have an impact wrench. No air tools. And too far from my flat (ground floor) to plug in a compressor and use air tools. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    540i Touring hub swap

    I need to try and borrow an angle grinder in that case. Getting a new bolt is easy as they have them in stock, or there's a company by my work (Apex Fasteners, Ipswich Road, Slough) and they have every bolt I could ever need. It's just getting the bleedin thing off. [emoji2959] Cheers Deepan Aka NF Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    540i Touring hub swap

    So on the ice a few weeks ago, lost the back end and hit a kerb. Cracked the drivers side wheel hub (single lane Road). Trying to swap the hub over from the one in my M5 that I'm breaking for the S62 Touring project. The hub on the 540i doesn't want to come loose at all. Almost as if it's fused to the suspension leg. The 16mm bolt that holds the hub closed just turns and won't come out any further: It still has at least 5mm to travel before its half way, and crucially far enough to pry the hub to separate enough to slide it off the suspension leg. What am I doing wrong or what else do I need to do to complete this task. I'm about ready to give up and chuck it all in. Thanks. Deepan aka NF Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
