    E60 gearbox slipping

    That's nice to hear.....the bridge seal are next to the mechatronic sleeve but do not get replaced with the service. However after Andrew pointed this issue out in another thread and I checked online. These seals do wear and tear over time and guess what leak oil...…..there's a few videos on you tube about it and a young American guy replaces them when showing to how service the box.

    E60 gearbox slipping

    Greetings...….I've had my diesel E61 525 M Sport M57 T2 Autobox serviced at Mackies ZF Specialist in Glasgow with 116k on it. I've had it since 104k. This is the only service it has had, like I said earlier in this thread a slight gear slippage but that's all. I did however suggest the bridge seals be replaced also with the service and was questioned as to why as this is " not a high value threat". But it was also suggested I had read up on the internet on the bridge seals subject too, it was done as it was my money and no questions asked. My last 3 cars have all been diesel and I understand the need for these cars needing to be driving miles daily and not left to sit around. I've had no hassle with these cars neither and will continue to buy this type until I can't. I also buys cars knowing they will need some work and money put into them too which is part of the buzz. I do not buy for the brand as most cars all fail in many ways. I'm looking to have this car beyond 200k hopefully but if not so be it. I appreciate people have different ideas and thoughts about these cars and in particular dirty dervs. It is also down to the individual to spend more or not on their beloved car...…... Oh...and I probably have the wear and tear wiring loom gremlins and throttle body to replace....

    How to pick a good boiler

    Good one Karl, spot on about the Viessmann systems and needing a fully trained up engineer to fit them, not the mickey mouse ones they give out now. Very interested in your suggestions so appreciate that pal. Cheers. Had my solar hot system 10 years now and missed a beat. Prost!

    Got the car back from Mackies today and it is much better. John, suggested we take it out so he could assess anything. A little slip in one gear and that's all... Thank crunchie....... The rattling is something else... Highly recommend these guys and nobody else like them here... Thx Andrew..... Of course it all goes belly up then that's just how it is..... Because wear and tear from owner before me was not into driving like some of us are....... but yes it will go at some point....

    There are shit loads of glossy sites still out there that seem very genuine and connected to the energy schemes. DO NOT BE FOOLED....!!!!! go and speak to a local community energy saving scheme..... https://www.viessmann.co.uk/

    How to pick a good boiler

    Viessmann 'German' products are second to none and don't cost the earth either, Valliant still have good cred, baxi , bosch etc stay away from....the Potterton are interesting but do search for domestic reviews. Viessmann also do a solar hot water system with outside temp controls as part of their outstanding reputation for economy too. .check them out. If it's a combi then it should be slightly cheaper, but go with these guys unless you can them to be straight up. http://www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/renewable-energy/heat/solar-water-heating Without solar part, 3k and check for grants too which will be around....don't jump in with these guys. Do your research, speak to friends of friends of friends or ask on here in your local ….

    E60 gearbox slipping

    I have a rattling happening coming from drivers side the last few weeks, thought it was MOT advisory on arb bushes and arms but no......it seems to happen when accelerating to 20mph-30mph but maybe more but can't hear it. I've also tried it auto and manual and does it in both. I've got into Mackies in Glasgow after months of not getting round to the autobox service, on Andrew's and others suggestions plus other forums..
