    central locking / rear doors don't lock

    There is also a electric connection on the latch of the body shell if this connection gets bad from rust you will have problems.

    Auto Gearbox Switch

    Back again i had no luck tracking down the right wiring loom this is the one i need but it costs 400 euro from BMW : Part number 7 so i am going with using a sunroof switch i have & join it into the loom; THERE are 3 yellow wires on it does anyone know the wiring of these pins on the socket so i wont wire it wrong .I also found the kickdown wire it comes into a plug from ecu to steering wheel where it connects to another socket . if i just tap onto this grey wire & run it to the kickdown switch it should solve that problem.

    Auto Gearbox Switch

    yes i found a wire with no connection on it so i put a fitting on it . It looks to be either red or brown with yellow stripe. I take it to be the kickdown wire as its going to driver speaker footwell.

    Auto Gearbox Switch

    I thought the mode switch was hard wired from ecu if it only plugs into a socket ( X6003 ) then i only need the plug for switch.

    Auto Gearbox Switch

    Sorry back to you again I decided to look up the wiring loom than to go cutting into it . Can you tell me which loom the plug is on as they are 2 looms under the dash 1 that crosses over from the passenger footwell in the dash & the other crosses over from P/ footwell loose across the A/C CENTER Box to steering wheel. I hope its this one as it will make it easier for breaker to remove & post on to me. Thanks.

Does anyone know the wiring of this switch socket does it go back to one of the sockets in passenger footwell i have another spare loom that comes from backseat that has the sunroof switch socket on it i can cut this from this loom to work the sports gearbox switch if i can find out where it goes too thanks.

    Common rail diesel in an E34?

    Hi I was thinking of doing this to my 89 E34 but complete swap of everything .The engine support mount in the E34 is just bolted to frame legs by 6 bolts 3bolts each side is the e39 the same. I am thinking of buying a e39 & swapping everything over the diff on e39 has different mounting points has it. E39 530D is what I want to do as I can buy a doner car for 1k. I found it done on YouTube but it doesn't say how

    TDS Inter cooler rad

    TDS Inter cooler rad

    Just getting back about this upgrade I haven't fitted it yet as the intercooler needs to be modified to fit right one of the inlets on the cooler is angled wrong. That is not my question though I want to know will I get a drop in pressure from turbo with a larger inter cooler fitted. The mod is worth doing as the standard inter cooler is very small so as well as getting more air into the engine it will get a better chance of cooling the air having it bigger. Thanks
