    E60 Driver Seat Rear Panel Removal

    Pretty easy to remove, grab the top of the panel at each side just on the rounded section, while pulling towards you jiggle it from side to side. when i did both of mine the clips came off the panel and remained in the seat, i had to use a hot glue gun to fix them back on again.. Seat back removal

    Improve Corner Stability

    Many thanks for the replies, i didn't realise that RealOEM listed the sizes, found a couple online and not a bad price. Front standard 24.6mm changing to 25.6mm Rear standard 13.5mm changing to 16mm That should keep it more level on cornering and fast roundabouts without ruining straight line comfort levels

    Improve Corner Stability

    Hi All I have been dwelling on the idea to swap out my standard anti roll bars for some beefier one's, can anyone confirm if the Msport anti roll bars are more heavy duty than my standards on a 530d, or will i have to go down the M5 route.

    530d manually turn engine to fit belt

    Many thanks Clavurion that did the trick
  6. Hi all As the subject reads any pointers, I gave read use a socket on the crank pully but I think I have 4 torx bolts not a large centre belt Car decided to throw the A/C belt because I stupidly left a zip tie on it when fitting my inline transmission thermostat Thanks in advance

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Got through 2 full kettles in the end using 15mm long socket finishing with 17mm long socket to stretch the pipe, took over an hour to stretch both ends. I did work from the top of the engine though, couldn't be bothered to get it up on the ramps and remove the undertray.

    Finally got around to fitting my VAG inline thermostat to my transmission cooling hose, bitch of a job to get the thermostat into the smaller diameter hose, but once that was done pretty easy after that.....

    Strange problem A/C on battery warning showing

    Hi Thanks for the reply, drove into work tonight again A/C on full auto and no problems at all, will have to keep an eye on it, i will also check my pulley for any cracking as you suggested.
  12. Hi Just got into the car with the missus to go and check on the nags, cars parked in the sun so very hot inside, start up hit A/C and auto everything fine, got a minute down the road red battery warning shows up and A/C blower speeds dropped to very low, switche'd off A/C, battery warning goes away, blower speed goes back up to max, a couple of minutes later try again with A/C and the same thing happens again. Could it be my crankshaft pulley on the way out, no screeching sounds or smell of rubber though, this is a first for me, new battery fitted a couple of months ago and coded to car. I commute 40 minutes to work everyday and in this warm spell have had the A/C on all the time with no issues. Thanks in advance
