    Stalk Noise

    A slither of paper is enough to do it.

    Screen not working, help needed!

    You need to find out why the fuse keeps blowing a short in the wire?

    Rear Window Anti Trap

    Does it work with the global opening and closing from the key? Hold down the lock button and see if that creates any movement.

    Detailing advice - claybar?

    The advantage of a clay bar over the mit is being able to see when the surface is clean as the clay bar will look clean.

    What's this button for?

    Have you pressed it?

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Oil & filter change and air filter change. Also checked intake to turbo sealed and no leaks, plus any boost pipes i could also access got the once over. Checked PCV was clean & working too. Then finally checked discs & pads, marginally warped and getting close to min thickness - new pads and discs in a few weeks.

    520d M47 help

    1. Give it a good service, good fuel, throw in an injector cleaner and go for an Italian tune up. Might be the car hasn't had it's legs stretched in a while and isn't working @ 100% 2. You can remove them if you want, there's pro's & cons to it. Probably best doing glow plugs & controller as well with it off (mmay as well clean EGR valve too) 3. Probably just the outside air temp sensor is faulty. Wouldn't affect the air con as that works from an internal sensor (if you have climate control) that it would read from. DPF regen is linked to engine/coolant temp only. Check your thermostats are working correctly ((if temp doesn't get over 70 degrees, they're knackered) 4. Probably just a stick switch, remove, clean refit and try again.

    Does it show how long ago the DPF last did a regen?

    Sounds like a sensor is not reading right. Carly or maybe the C310 should be able to show boost pressure, see if you can check this over a drive. I'd also check the manifold air pressure sensor too (also affects the turbo too).

    Does it feel gutless all the time? Can you hear the turbo spooling, or feel it kicking in?

    How does the car rev in neutral at a standstill? better or worse than in the afore mentioned situation

    Dpf problems

    I wouldn't say it's a 'technical' thing at all. Most people who have a Diesel, or consider buying one are aware of potential issues that repetitive short drives will cause. With the resource of the internet to do 30 minutes of research is not a big ask to save yourself £100's and find out about potential issues.

    Is it an auto or manual?
