    The headliner cloth covering has started to separate and sag. What is the best way of re-attaching?

    Fortunately mine is a touring so the lining just goes back out of the hatch. .I will wait the the weather is warmer and its not so windy!

    Wiper Rack

    Seem to recall a conversation with a retired BM service manager. He said the problem of wiper/ bonnet conflict was not a new one In the day the way to fix it was by putting a piece of 4x2 on the scuttle and bending the bonnet slightly over the wood. Problem solved!

    Wiper Rack

    Changing the wiper rack is a complete PITA, and getting hold of one that is not knackered is another!

    New warning just appeared!

    Started today and Bong" ESD regelt " caption. new one on me, what does it mean? It is followed by brake light circuit. I assume the loom in the tailgate is on its way out and it is causingthe CCM to throw up a warning?

    Should i buy a an E34? Whats it worth?

    I wolud agree with the previous comments. Definitely worth a punt. Is it an se with (working) aircon then whats not to like. Not as fast or indeed as frugal as the 525 but a manual is a bonus as nothing to go wrong in the transmission dept. A leather interior is very nice but the headlining will sag at some stage. The black roof bars will look awful but from the pic it seems to have the cross pieces. Nice and desireable. Red does tend to suffer more with lacquer peel/fade than other colours. The pundits say the e34 is the last BM built before the penny pinchers took over. Go on you know it makes sense!

    Fuel door

    The fuel door on the touring will not stay open when refuelling, fine when driving . A bit of a PITA, as I cant see which bit is broken or bent. Any help welcome!

    New hinge fixed the problem. On the shelf, so quite a high turn over item!

    Thanks for the info. Will have a look at the CCM. WRT language, all the other warnings are in English so I am a bit confused as to why this is the only one in German
  17. As per the title, the radio keeps trying to retune to a stronger signal. Is the an aeriel amp some where in the original system?

    Touring wiring,

    Just starting to get the occasional rear brake light warning so I assume the loom in the tailgate is on the way out. Anyone done a replacement section of the loom around the top hinge. I see there is a repair kit from BMW, probablyveryexpensive if it is still available and looking at the access it looks like a PITA to do the work. any inputs welcome.

    e34 OAT sensor

    Managed to break one of the wires to the OAT sensor in the front airdam. Not entirely my fault as the wire was corroded through a nick in the insulation. Its right at the sensor so no chance of repair. The part number on the sensor itself is 65811382447 OEM however shows the number to be 65 81 8 350 779 which is showing as NLA but there is a new number which the local stealer wont share Anyway anyone got a working spare of either number they are willing to part with?
