    E34 525i SE

    For that sort of money I would expect aircon and leather.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Replaced the missing aero aids in front of the rear wheels. A bit of OCD cleaning too.

    Rear Anti roll bar drop links.

    Managed to source a 16mm 1/4 drive socket (Snap on TMM16 if anybody is intrested) Will try on the other side.

    Rear Anti roll bar drop links.

    Shall not be doing that again!. Virtually no access to the bottom nut. The right tools are essential: 16mm angled ring spanner. Thin 16mm OE spanner. A lot of patience. In retrospect, a 1/4 drive 16mm socket (if there is such a thing, my set only goes to 14mm) on a UJ might be able to get under the drive shaft to access once the initial nut is cracked. A 3/8 socket is too big to get under.

    Yep mine is a touring and I can see no way of accessing the bottom nut, without getting the ARB off.
  15. Is there a simple way of getting to the botton nut to get it off? Haynes seem to suggest removing the whole ARB. I do hope not.
