    E39 Remove Tailgate

    Refitting a whole complete tailgate is a bugger. Need a special BMW tool to put some kind of ball into some kind of joint. I'm yet to do mine. Gonna have to take it to the Stealer to get it done probably.

    Off to London to pick up a new car. A 1999 540i Touring. This is a massive gamble but at £1100 it's worth a punt.

    Not sure where you mean bud
  10. Re. Fitting facelift rear lights to a preface lift Touring A few years ago, a member of the forum (James, can't remember his username) told me how to add a resistor to the lights to get rid of the error message on check control. No need for LCM swaps etc. Now I've come to do it (I'm slow) I can't find his message. Anyone kbow of a how to?
  11. The Touring as failed on a weak handbrake. Not surprised it was an advisory on last two MOTs where they adjusted it as much as they can to increase the strength. So, anyone know what I need to do to sort.

    Yes have got that, I haven't fitted it yet as I found rust under the covers above the wheel wheel. Going to dremel that back and paint.
  13. Anyone got any spare plugs that go in here?

  17. The 6mm refers to the diameter of the hole
  18. Tried about a million different plugs to no avail. Joins rear arch liner to bumper. RealOEM is showing screws and a nut thing but I don't think that's accurate, I'm sure it's a plastic plug.

  21. Is it 6mm long or the top part 6mm in diameter?
  22. Think I've tried those....too thin. I'll double check
