Hi everyone, One of my air bags has just popped and the car is sitting on its arse. I can hear it hissing as its trying to pump it up. What I need to know is, can I drive it like this or will it damage things. Presumably its sitting on the bump stops which are meant for occasional use. Would it sit at 50 on the motorway OK. Got to get back to London this evening. 70mile drive. Thoughts/ experience appreciated please. I'll probably delete the SLS after this.
Hi Guys! It's been a while since I posted - it's been a difficult few months, but Brutus (my 04 reg E61) is still keeping me smiling every time I drive him! But....he failed his MOT on bushes - specifically the Rear upper link arm and Front axle lower rear link arm. The Garage quoted me almost £300 to supply and fit - that's not even BMW OEM parts! With a free re-test of course! I managed to buy the same parts online for £90 and I'm hoping to do the work myself to save me some pennies (my Mrs is livid - I only bought the car in June!) My question is: I have rebuilt some cars in the past - is changing these a big thing to do DIY on the driveway with some axle-stands and a decent torque-wrench or something I should get the mechanics to do? How long does the job take for a competent DIYer and how long for a garage? Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks in advance! FakeBob
Hi, So the car started complaining about this, and from the looks of it, I'm guessing it means the bulb is out seeing as one side is off. I've googled changing this, and it looks doable, but I will have to get an extender socket thing. What would a garage charge me to do this? Halfords are selling replacements at £60, while ebay has all kinds ranging from £5. What bulbs will fit and where should I get them from? If I'm gonna get hit with a charge like £50 per bulb to swap, I think this might spur me to give it a go. What do you guys do? Thanks Jon
