    Quite Mick but the brackets are supplied in primer, paint them before installation. Kind regards, Taffy

    Radiator replacement E28 520i 1987

    Hello Mark, There are two bolts, one each side of the radiator toward the top. These are actually hex headed self tappers that screw into speed fasteners ( BMW call them "body nuts" ). At the bottom of the radiator are two lugs that engage into two rubber mounts in a cross member. Always a good idea to flush out your cooling system before replacing coolant and bleed afterwards. Kind regards, Taffy

    C.V. joints

    Well, I took delivery of two SKF C.V. joint kits today. Probably start the ball rolling early next week.

    C.V. joints

    Cheers mate, On the best balance of probabilities I've ordered two from Autodoc which are on their way. I'll change one side and then go for the other.

    Thanks for your help everybody. So, am I right in saying SKF VKJA 8810 is the correct part?

    C.V. joints

    Thank you John, Do the splined shaft separate from the CV joint easily or did you have to press it out? Taffy

    C.V. joints

    I have been looking at replacement C.V. joints for my 535i and on a suppliers site one I listed "with groove in inner part(inside)" absolutely verbatim. The other is listed as without groove. Can anybody shine any light on this? The suppliers haven't any idea. I can't order what I need till I have a clear idea of what is meant. I bet John H will know.
