    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.
  2. 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.

    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.

    E39 RHS brake cooling duct.

    Auto facelift. I need a RHS front brake cooling duct and the part it fits in. This bit
  11. Very nice but a bit expensive IMO. I would like aircon and leather for the that sort of money. Nice wheels!

    Alarm Siren

    What type of battery is in the alarm system siren please? Facelift touring if it makes a difference.

    Heated washer jets - wiring

    Unlikely to be polarity dependant IMO

    Brochures.

    Now my e34 touring has gone to a new home, I am getting rid of some of the accumulated brochures I accumulated over the years. Just head over to a common auction site!

    Yes you are probably right but it is now safely in my nice warm garage!

    Alarm disable.

    Is it possible/practical to disable the alarm siren on a facelift car?

    Alarm disable.

    Thanks team, replacement ordered.

    Alarm disable.

    Ok update. The red light on the mirror blinks when system is armed. Opened the door with the key and got in . No reaction from the siren. Lights flashed as expected. So suspect the syren is at fault. When I get it out is there a means of testing it to confirm syren or wiring fault? Thanks

    Alarm disable.

    Yes both the keys are paired and work. The lights flash as per but no sounds.
